Indonesia is the epicentre of biodiversity, harbouring more variety of marine life than anywhere else in the world. The South China Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean converge here at the world's largest archipelago, with over 18,000 islands, and the result is spectacular diving: 600 different corals and 3,000 species of fish. While the names of places like Bali, Komodo, Java and Sumatra are related to forests and tigers, the underwater world here is simply spectacular.

Find drift diving, reef diving, fantastic night diving, impressive walls, and shipwreck relics of World War II. Indonesia offers diving for all levels. Bali is one of the most popular places to learn to dive with breathtaking sites. East of Bali is Komodo, where nutrient-rich streams support a vibrant ecosystem, designated a Heritage Site by UNESCO. Lombok and Gili Islands offer a peaceful, beautiful and casual dive with turtles, cuttlefish, octopus, lionfish and scorpion fish.

North Sulawesi offers great diving in Wakatobi, Lembeh Strait, Bunaken and Manado. Wakatobi is famous for its action and colours from blue-ringed octopus and ghost pipe fish, resident turtles, soft corals and gorgonians. Lembeh is famous for muck diving where you can see snake eels, pygmy seahorses, octopus, scorpion fish and hundreds of extremely well camouflaged creatures. Almost anything could be hidden in the black sand.

Diving in Sumatra is also special. The best sites are on the west coast in the sheltered islands like Pulau Weh. The deep waters here are home to an abundance of marine life, ranging from pelagic giants and wonderful smaller creatures.
