You might think it was all about Europe in July, and while the continent is glorious at this time of year with perfect conditions in places like Gozo, the Azores and Sardinia, there are still plenty of reasons to head further afield.

Diving in July

The Galapagos experiences the Humboldt Current which brings cold water rich in nutrients and plankton, which attracts fish and birds and makes for great - if chilly - diving. On the other side of the world the weather and diving conditions are perfect in Indonesia and Borneo; a great time to experience the wonder that is Sipadan.

The manta rays and whale sharks are well and truly settled in around the Maldives and cropping up all over the place like Ningaloo Reef in Australia, Mexico, Belize - if you know where to look.

Our favourites for July

Bali

Bali

Bali and Lombok have great variety for divers including wreck diving, muck diving, mantas and even a chance to encounter the extraordinary mola mola.

French Polynesia

French Polynesia

French Polynesia is home to the iconic lagoon at Bora Bora and some stunning diving. The biggest draw is arguably large numbers of sharks but there is much more.

The Azores

The Azores offer world-class diving; we think the best in Europe. It also offers some amazing activities around its volcanic scenery.

Gozo

Gozo, Malta's quiet sister, offers great Mediterranean diving, as well as culture, with a collection of charming villages and prehistoric sites to visit; and it's relatively anonymous.

Gozo
Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island, in our opinion the best place from which to dive the Great Barrier Reef, is situated at the northern end of the Reef, is home to little more than a Marine Research Station, a luxury hotel, pristine beaches, and a population of large lizards.
