Gili Mimpang (also known as Batu Tiga) consists of three big rocks and another half dozen smaller ones and is located in Amuk Bay between Padang Bai and Candidasa, 15 minutes by speedboat from Padangbai. The topography of Bali Gili Mimpang is diverse with full of craggy rocks covered in hard and soft corals and big gorgonians. The currents here can be strong and tricky depending on the moon phases therefore the dive is for more experienced divers. Diving in Gili Mimpang is a truly gift to be enjoyed.

In addition to the typical variety of coral fish you can enjoy a lot of blue spotted rays, napoleon wrasse, trumpet fish, squid, cuttlefish, blue-yellow ribbon eels, trigger fish, butterfly fish, moray eels, trevalies, jackfish, tunas and you have a big chance of seeing white tip reef sharks shoals of snappers, mackerels, sometimes manta rays and from May to November the sunfish or Mola-Mola shows up regularly.
