This is another wonderful dive site around Nusa Penida Island and is also part of the national park. It is a lovely easy, calm drift dive, very similar to the neighboring Pura Ped dive. The dive site gets its name from the Bahasa Indonesian word for elementary school. The dive site is considered a great place to learn to dive and can be easily accessed from the shore. It is a very popular dive site as it is very easy to do but also because the coral and fish are plentiful and very healthy. Like other dive sites in Nusa Penida, it is mostly dived from August to October when divers come to see the elusive Mola Mola or sunfish.

The coral is in great condition and the dive itself consists of drifting along above the coral plateau, which is between 12 and 18 meters deep. The drifting allows divers to cover large distances and see a lot of the reef without much effort. Divers often remark that it is more of a flying dive as it feels as if you are flying over the coral.

The corals are home to a huge variety of reef fish including parrotfish, lionfish, anemone fish, and triggerfish. The nooks and crannies are often not explored as the current is too fast but when the current slows down it is possible to have a look in the many crevices of the reef.

The dive site is famous for the Mola Mola, which can be spotted between August and October. These are found at cleaning stations or swimming around the reef and are a magnificent fish to spot. There is also opportunity to see barracuda, manta rays and reef sharks as well as other pelagic fish. Whale sharks have also been seen at this site but they are extremely rare.
