Indonesia is the PADI Vacation Spotlight for the month of January in 2017. Did you know that Indonesia is an epicentre of biodiversity, hosting a greater variety of marine life than anywhere else on earth?

The South China Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean converge here on the world’s largest archipelago of more than 18,000 islands.

Thriving off Indonesia’s coastline are more than 600 coral and 3000 fish species.

The scuba diving is nothing short of outstanding. There’s exhilarating drift diving, extensive reef diving, fantastic night diving, unique muck diving and breathtaking steep walls.

Bali is a hot spot for giant sunfish and manta rays encounters. Nusa Penida features some stunning drop-offs and slopes covered with a rich coral reef and vibrant, diversified marine life.

With more dive sites yet to be discovered, Indonesia has something for divers of all levels.
