Scuba Diving in Bali & Indonesia

One thing I love almost as much as shopping is Scuba Diving!

I have dived in many places including Thailand (amazing diving) and while I haven't dived Bali yet, I hear only amazing things. I did in fact Dive Indonesia in September 2008 as I went there for my honeymoon. Well actually we went to a magical place called "Wakatobi". It is located a 2.5 hour charter flight from Bali. They say that this place has the best house reef in the world! - And it does! The wall diving was spectacular! An all inclusive week will set you back approx $2100US, but hey, if its as good as the reviews, its just a drop in the ocean so to say. By the way, I live in Far Nth Qld on the Great Barrier Reef so I guess that's saying something.

Amazing places I have heard about in Bali include;

Tulamben - USS Liberty wreck (no currents easy dive 5m-30m)

Menjangan Island - National Park (day trip from Kuta)
Blue Lagoon (Sharks!)
Nusa Lembongan / Nusa Penida


I will post an update about this once I have dived these sites.

Update: Ok, so I have dived bali now and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be. The USS Liberty Wreck at Tulumban is one of the best dives I have ever done! Indonesia is the epicentre of all things diving and I think it is well worth diving as many sites as you can.
