The archipelagos outstanding and unique dive & exploration destinations!
Indonesia is a country of geographical extremes, and without doubt the world’s most complex single nation, comprising of 17,000+ islands stretched over 5200 km from Banda Aceh, on the tip of Sumatra in the west, to the remote highlands of West Papua in the east.
Of those many islands three – New Guinea, Borneo and Sumatra – are among the world’s largest, only 6,000 actually have names and less than 1,000 are inhabited.
New Guinea in the east, is the world’s second largest island (after Greenland) and is divided roughly 50/50 with Papua New Guinea, with Indonesia having the western half (West Papua) and the eastern half forming the mainland of PNG. While Borneo, the third largest island in the world, is shared with Malaysia and Brunei, with the lion’s share of about 73% belonging to Indonesia and forming the provinces of Kalimantan.
