Beautiful diving sites of Indonesia – Toyapakeh

Indonesia is an extraordinary island nation in South-East Asia. It is considered one of the Asian tigers (countries with high economic growth) and consists of more than 17.5 thousand islands! 8.5mln Indonesians live on more than 11tys of them. The largest islands of Indonesia are: Sumatra, Borneo, Guinea, Java, and Sulawesi, but besides them, there are many much smaller, but no less beautiful and worth visiting, especially if you like diving.

Just such a unique, tiny island is Nusa Penida. Situated to the south-east of Bali, it is separated from it by the 20km wide Badung Strait. Due to its undeveloped infrastructure, it is a great place for people who like wildlife and communing with it. Together with two smaller, neighbouring islands, it forms a reserve for wild birds.

But what is most interesting on Nusa Penida are the dive sites for which Indonesia is world famous. One of the most beautiful is Toyapakeh. The magnificent corals and the vastness of the fish, are the hallmark of this place. Huge pelagic fish, lurking in the endless blue, while corals, surrounded by a mass of typical reef species, such as: anthias, wings, moray eels, snappers, blowfish and caranxes

Combined with excellent visibility and amazing coral formations, we get one of the most beautiful places in Indonesia where we can watch marine life. When going for a dive, you should be prepared for the currents occurring here. If we use them properly, they will make our diving even more pleasant.

Interestingly, there is a Polish diving centre – Diving Bali, run by Krzysztof Sieniawski. Below we present a short film which encourages you to visit Toyapakeh.
