Active vacation in Indonesia - things to do, entertainment and nightlife

Indonesia is a surfer's paradise. The island state is surrounded by water on all sides. You can find waves here at any time of the year. They are suitable for both beginners and experienced surfers. This is due to the difficult terrain of the bottom and coastline, the high level of tides, and the fact that the Islands are in the path of a swell (a wave formed by a storm or a stable wind system). Bali Island is the most convenient for surfing. This is due to the well-developed surf infrastructure here, unlike other Islands. The east coast is most suitable for surfing in Bali. The rainy season from November to April is the best period for surfing.

Rafting is also developed mainly in Bali. Rafting on the Ayung River is suitable for beginners. It is more like a river walk than extreme entertainment.

Food and photographer services are included in the tour, as a rule.
Indonesia is a real paradise for diving fans. A quarter of all marine species live in coastal waters. One of the most popular places for divers is the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi. There are many special diving resorts here. This involves diving right on the spot, without complicated transfers and wasting time on the road. The so-called muck-diving is popular here. This is diving near the shore. In fact, many interesting organisms that are not found far out at sea live right off the coast. You can meet a scorpionfish, a giant frogfish, a stargazer fish, an ornate ghost pipefish, and a spotted harlequin shrimp off the coast of Sulawesi. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
