Bring­ing the div­ing back

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

H AV I N G O N E O F T H E L O N G E S T coast­lines in the world – stretch­ing from the In­dian Ocean to the east and Pa­cific Ocean to the west – In­done­sia is mind-bog­glingly big and mind-bog­glingly di­verse. More than 3,000 fish species are found here, along with 15% of world’s co­ral reefs, mak­ing it an ideal coun­try for div­ing en­thu­si­asts. Now, PADI Travel is of­fer­ing deals in the Gili Is­lands, an ar­chi­pel­ago of three is­lands – Gili Trawan­gan, Air and Meno – off the north­west of Lom­bok, re­cently shaken by earthquakes up to mag­ni­tude 6.9. The area is now bounc­ing back and by go­ing there to visit the reefs, cliffs and white beaches, your money helps in the re­build­ing of badly im­pacted com­mu­ni­ties and busi­nesses. Be sure to do some home­work be­fore choos­ing a dive cen­tre: visit to lo­cate an ac­cred­ited dive cen­tre or re­sort.
