If you want to see weird and wonderful marine critters that can’t be seen anywhere else then Indonesia is the place to see them. If you want to get away from the diving crowds there are still many parts of the Indonesian archipelago that are far off the beaten track.
Want to discover and name a new species? They are still being found in Indonesian waters. Indonesia also offers some of the world’s best value diving and because the country is spread over such a wide area there is always great diving to be had somewhere, at any time of year.
Indonesia covers a vast area and has the world’s longest coastline, over 50 thousand kilometres of it. Diving options around the thousands of islands are many and varied. Some places, like the tourist hot spot of Bali, are easily reached and have full service dive centers. From Bali you can dive in cool fast currents to see Mola Molas or you can swim from the shore at Tulamben to dive the world famous Liberty Wreck. Close by the Gili Islands and Lombok offer great diving and beautiful surroundings.
Other areas require somewhat more dedication and time to get to. Like the Togian Islands, Sangalaki or Pulau Weh. Moving from place to place is not always easy but the rewards are worth it when you reach an untouched tropical paradise that few have dived before you. Many destinations require long liveaboard trips to reach. Komodo and Flores are best dived by liveaboard as is Irian Jaya and the Banda Sea.
Indonesia also has some fantastic shore diving. Just a short flight from Singapore, Manado is the jumping off spot to the wonders of the Lembeh Strait and Bunaken Marine Park where world class diving is on the doorstep of the dive resort. Lembeh has arguably the best macro diving in the world and attracts underwater photographers keen to capture images of critters that are more abundant there than anywhere else.
