Once again, Dive Spot in North Bali is interesting enough compared with other Famous Dive Spots in Bali. Taman Segara, located in the village Penuktukan, District Tejakula has very healthy coral and a various kind of marine life. This has become a underwater attraction for Taman Segara.

In the 1970′s, the coral reefs in this area were quite severe due to lack of knowledge of local people about how to preserve the underwater ecosystem. Ornamental fishing with hazardous chemicals and the usage of coral as a building material are the main causes.

But, some people who care about that condition was trying to make changes. Eventually, on October 8th  2012, Taman Segara was inaugurated by the Regent of Buleleng  as a dive site in North Bali. The inauguration was marked by events, performed by approximately 50 divers.
