October sees the return of regions like the Middle East and North Africa, which have been unbearably hot for the previous few months. The Red Sea remains a favourite for world-class diving and Oman is an interesting alternative away from the crowds; both not too far away from the UK.

Diving in October

Further afield, October and November are the perfect months to dive the Quirimbas Archipelago in Mozambique, home to one of our favourite dives, Neptune's Arm. The seasons are changing in Indonesia and it's really the last month of the year you will want to be diving in Europe unless you like cold water.

Summer may be over but that doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to the sunshine, just head to the likes of Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Indonesia.

Our favourites for October

Highlands of Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea

This is one of the last few genuine frontier areas left on the planet. Mention Papua New Guinea and people will probably have visions of cannibals marauding through the jungle. Well, nowadays, the only headhunters you’re likely to come across are Australian recruitment consultants on holiday, but they – and you – would be among the first people to explore what is a truly original destination.
