Indonesia forms one corner of the Coral Triangle, which is the epicentre of the world’s marine biodiversity. With 20% of the world’s coral reefs, it is one of the ultimate scuba diving destinations. Some dive destinations in this area are situated in marine conservation parks.
There are over 3,000 fish species and 600 species of coral. The diving is diverse with steep walls, deep-water trenches, underwater volcanic mountains, World War II wrecks, pelagic life, an endless variety of macro life and extraordinary muck diving.
Many destinations have excellent land-based diving, while some remote areas are best approached by boat in the form of a liveaboard.
