Located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the islands of Indonesia are home to the most biodiverse marine life on the plant and the best snorkeling Indonesia has to offer. A vast body of water spans from Komodo National Park to the eastern border of Papua with multiple National Marine Parks, where scientists conduct marine research and conservation, keeping the pristine waters available for future generations. With over 17,000 islands in the archipelago, the waters hold an endless array of underwater landscapes and vibrant marine life. Whether you are an experienced snorkeler or new to the sport, the calm aquamarine waters and shallow reefs are perfect for discovering the underwater treasures.
Some of the most spectacular snorkeling sights are located in and around Komodo National Park, “Manta Point,” a sanctuary for Manta Rays is where you can snorkel alongside these majestic creatures as they glide through the water. Another favorite snorkel spot is Siaba Besar, known for its colorful shallow reef and mild currents, making it an ideal snorkel spot for families. Wakatobi National Park is known to have some of the most pristine waters in Indonesia. The house reef, located off of the Wakatobi resort, is an exquisite display of cascading coral gardens, fans, and thousands of small marine fish.
For those cruising through Bali and the surrounding islands, Nusa Penida has a “Manta Point” where guests can swim with the rays and if we are lucky, a giant Mola Mola. The neighboring island of Lombok has a unique pink sand beach where guests can snorkel over a vibrant offshore reef. Indonesia’s islands hold a wealth of exquisite underwater wonders and breathtaking encounters. No matter what islands you choose to visit, the snorkeling will not disappoint.
