For divers and snorkellers, it doesn’t get any better than diving holidays in Indonesia. Located at the heart of the Coral Triangle at the world’s epicentre of marine biodiversity, scuba diving in Indonesia is really a cut above the rest. From macro and muck diving, to wrecks, pristine reefs and big fish action, this chain of 17,000 islands hosts many of the world’s best dive sites.
Immaculate coral reefs present a kaleidoscopic myriad of bright colours, with healthy ecosystems meaning some of the richest aggregations of marine life anywhere on Earth. The best part is, there has been almost no coral bleaching across this jewel in the crown of South East Asia, so scuba diving here is as it should be – varied, exciting and biodiverse.
