Bali is one of the most favorite destinations of tourists during their holiday vacation, especially for those who are hungry of the waters. There are ten most well-known diving spots in the area. You have the Blue Lagoon, in Padang Bai. It's a shallow reef that's very good for novice divers and night dives. You can also explore a wide variety of corals and anemones. Near Lembongan Island is Nusa Penida, which takes pride of its Crystal Bay. Like the Blue Lagoon, it's very shallow and is filled with lots of molamolas. There is also a large rock formation at the middle, which is not a good diving or swimming site because of its strong current.
Another fascinating place to visit is the Maumere in Flores Island. It's already a very famous tourist destination, so there are now plenty of tours that you can choose from. You can also select a yacht charter from Bali and then sail through the Maumere. You can also reach the area by flying from Central Flores Island. Formerly a volcanic island, Flores has beautiful places to offer to foreigners. You can try shopping at their local market, dine in Wuring (a small fishing village), or experience traditional Indonesian culture at Sikka. Of course, your stay will not be complete without diving or swimming, especially in Pemana.
Sailing in Indonesia could also mean exploring Irian Jaya. This is the largest Indonesian province, with a span of more than 450,000 square kilometers. Besides the beach, you can make a stop and follow several hiking trails leading to Puncak Jayawijaya, a very large mountain range that is 5,800 meters above sea level. You can also camp at other mountains such as Gunung Yamin and Gunung Trikora. There are also plenty of lakes where you can go fishing or canoeing, the largest of which is Panai.
People go to Indonesia for food, clothing, and a sense of culture. They may have forgotten that it's also blessed with an impressive ecosystem, made up of seas, lakes, mountains, and animal creatures. Sailing in Indonesia will allow you to enjoy its natural resources.
