Laid back, chilled out, good vibes – that’s Gili Trawangan! If you’re looking for a top-class place to stay with some fine diving just a short distance from your front door, check out Villa Almarik and Gangga Divers and tick one of the four ‘Pearls of Indonesia’ off your bucket list.
PLAYING NICELY WITH GIANTS
You’d think that some of the largest animals to have ever graced the planet might not be overly concerned with the human gnats that are snorkelling alongside them – but just like a cloud of gnats will cause us humans to change our direction, so large clouds of people in the water will change the whales’ behaviour. To go with the stunning article on whale encounters in our latest issue, we take a look at some of the best places to swim with whales responsibly. Tell us of your experiences and we will keep the guide up-to-date.
BEST OF BALI
If there’s a list of places where ‘Scuba Diving’ pops into your head just by saying the name of the destination, then Bali must be at the top of the list, or very close to it. The variety of diving available varies from shallow, easy, muck and macro to deep walls, extreme currents and the biggest of fish. The same is true of the landscape and the lifestyle – from quiet and sedate among hillside villages to loud and lairy in the nightclubs of Kuta Beach. It’s an island where there really is something for everyone, so here’s some of the best places to enjoy Balinese diving.
The idea is not new, but previous models of mask-mounted dive computers have quietly disappeared without kicking up too much of a fuss. Could the heads-up-display of Scubapro’s all new Galileo HUD prove a game-changer?
