Louisa is here to help give you the inside track.

In May more palatable weather conditions are starting to creep into southern Europe, so it's really the first month you might consider diving somewhere like Gozo or Oman, though the water will be chilly!

Diving in May

Looking further afield, there are some great diving destinations that are just coming into season such as Papua New Guinea, the Great Barrier Reef (which is better for diving during the Aussie winter) and the Komodo National Park in Indonesia, which is virtually inaccessible the rest of the year. Also in Australia, but on the Ningaloo Reef, whale sharks are appearing again - reason enough to travel to the other side of the world we think.

The darling buds may be emerging, but it's still further afield that the best May diving holidays are to be had. Liveaboard in Komodo National Park anyone?
