Diving in Southwest Sulawesi

This vast region is a place of lush mountains and rice paddies, as well as otherworldly dive sites, featuring dazzling reefs as well as rocks and walls. From here you will not only have access to wonderful Wakatobi National Park, you will also be able to visit Selayar Island, with its breathtaking array fo dive sites, where you can spot everything from the macro to larger marine animals. In Wakatobi you will find more than 25 different coral reefs and a whole world of marine life with 900 different fish species. When it comes to diversity, this is one of the best spots in the world, alive with incredible color and life. The park features four main islands to choose from, including Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia and Binongko. You can base yourself here or join a liveaboard to explore in more detail. It would be a shame to travel to this fascinating region and not explore its many riches, from sugar-sand beaches to charming local villages and long history, illustrated with cave paintings that are tens of thousands of years old.
On the island of Selayar, its rich waters are dense with coral and photographers love catching wide-angle shots, while wildlife lovers will also enjoy the clear waters and variety of animals to be seen.
