Britain at its best, except through a car window in a 10-mile motorway traffic jam. No traffic jams in the Galapagos, apparently.

Family holidays in Europe are probably highest on the agenda here, and with good reason. The warm waters of the Med are an easy hop away, and while everyone seems to have had the same idea, we at Original Diving know the very best family (and bank balance) friendly places to stay and dive in August such as the little-known but wonderful Gozo near Malta.
Diving in August
For those of you looking to avoid children at all costs should consider the extremely long flight(s) to Fiji and French Polynesia which will probably put families off and guarantee relative peace and quiet as well as great diving and weather in August. Also perfect is Indonesia, one of our favourites. And if you can bear the heat then the Red Sea is great for big stuff at this time of year.
