Planning a scuba diving vacation, when traveling with a non-diving partner, can be very challenging, because a lot of dive destination does not really offer much in terms of holiday experience for non-divers. What do you do – stop diving? No, just reading, and I might just be able to help you to plan the best vacation you’ve ever had – you both!
Bali has been well known as a destination for tourists, artists, writers and adventurers for a very long time. You can also look for the best and adventurous Bali diving sites and enjoy the warm, crystal clear water.
Beautiful scenery, traditional culture is still alive and integrated into daily life, and the people are very friendly. Diving, however, has only recently been added to the many things that can be experienced while on holiday in Bali. Scuba diving around Bali offers something for everyone, regardless of your particular interest.
An added bonus is that all the dive sites around Bali can be visited on a day trip, which is great if you do not want to change the hotel. Therefore, I would suggest spending at least two nights each in Tulamben and Pemuteran. Tulamben since morning and night diving here is absolutely amazing.
Nice and easy diving can be found in Padang Bai, but even here the current can pick up suddenly. You can see turtles, white tip reef sharks, as well as leaf scorpionfish, ghost pipefish, and pygmy seahorses even here and experience the beautiful marine life.
