Pertamina Pier is a great site, with a fantastic array of marine life at the end of the pier. The pier's pillars are closely spaced and covered in soft corals with nudibranches, eels, lionfish, octopus, pipefish, barracuda, traevally and sweetlips.

Beware of boat traffic at this site, and avoid diving when a fuel boat is fuelling at the end of the pier. Pertamina fuel facility is nearby.

Visibility here can be poor, especially after rain. Longshore drift currents can also kick up the sediment here. The end of the pier is beyond the tidal area and offers better visibility than closer to the shore.

It's advisable to take a dive knife with you in case you become entangled in fishing line or nets amongst the pillars. It is also a nice idea to remove any such rubbish that you see to save fish from the same fate.
