The Indonesian archipelago consists of a sprawling chain of tropical volcanic islands comprising one of the most diverse and exotic nations on Earth. With over 13,000 islands, it is easily the world’s largest island chain. From the north-west tip of Sumatra to the south-eastern corner of Irian Jaya, the archipelago spans over 3,000 miles.
Indonesia offers stunning beaches, jungle, volcanoes, crystal waters, rich marine life, numerous cultural attractions and its own highly regarded cuisine. Here at Original Diving we have been lucky enough to travel widely throughout the islands visiting the latest hotels, and checking out the very best dive spots. All in the name of research, naturally.
You can't get much better than an Indonesia diving holiday
When it comes to Indonesia diving, there aren’t many places on Earth that offer the variety and quality. You could visit time and time again and never get bored. Whether you choose to hunt for the Giant Mola Mola (sunfish) in the waters around Bali, to explore the strong currents and unchartered waters of Komodo on a luxury liveaboard, or to experience the greatest marine biodiversity on earth in Sulawesi, there is a huge amount on offer. Add to this incredible hotels and service and excellent value for money and it isn’t hard to see why Indonesia is one of our favourites.
