  1. Great Blue Hole, Belize

One of the world’s largest natural formations of its kind, the Great Blue Hole in Belize is a world-class diving destination for recreational scuba divers. Offering 30m of visibility and a reef of vibrant colors, the deep blue hole makes an incredible transition from salt to fresh water at about 15m. As the water changes, the ocean life does too. Dive the Great Blue Hole and discover enormous tuna and octopus in the deep, before diving even deeper and exploring the ancient caverns hidden below. The Great Blue Hole allows divers the unique opportunity to dive in crystal-clear waters and experience the joy of swimming with myriads of tropical fish.

  1. The Liberty, Bali, Indonesia

The Liberty in Bali, Indonesia, is a shipwreck unlike any other. The 120-meter-long wreckage of this World War II cargo ship is extremely popular with divers and photographers alike because it is completely encrusted in vibrant corals, anemone, and gorgonians. What’s more, the black sand provides a wonderful color contrast between the shipwreck and the variety of marine life swimming around it. The Liberty is the most famous diving destination in Bali and should not be missed.
