[:id]Indonesia is a vast archipelago of 17 000 islands extending between Asia and the Pacific Ocean. Its warm, calm and crystal-clear waters and exceptional biodiversity have made it an endless playground for snorkelers.
Bali, Lombok and the small neighbouring islands (Nusa Penida, Gili Islands) are the main snorkeling destinations in Indonesia. Here there are top-quality snorkeling spots (reefs and shipwrecks, such as the wreck of the USAT Liberty), although high tourist numbers and the over-use of resources have strongly contributed to the deterioration of the coral. The small island of Pulau Menjangan is probably the best snorkeling spot in Bali, a wonderful and exceptionally well-preserved reef drop-off, and not to be missed during your visit to the island. Outside this area, Raja Ampat and its 1 500 islands, large and small, Sulawesi (Togians Islands, Bunaken Island, Siladen Island…), Sumatra or the Komodo National Park also offer a wealth of high-quality spots.
