SCUBA Diving Destinations: Asia and the Pacific

20 March 2018
No other place on Earth is as rich and varied in marine life as the "Coral Triangle", which part of the Asia and the Indo-Pacific region. It covers Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Timor Leste.

As well as great marine life, the Indo-Pacific boasts many wrecks. Some areas, such as much of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, are currently affected by coral bleaching - but other reefs are in really good condition.
