Located along the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia, Padang faces one of the world’s most important oceans, the Indian Ocean.

Padang is also the gateway to one of the world’s top surfing islands, the Mentawai islands. For nature lovers, Padang is also the starting point to explore inland such as the hills of Bukit Tinggi. The city itself hosts a number of points of interest such as the distinctive Minangkabau architecture and unrivalled cuisine making Padang a destination to be reckoned with.

As a dive destination, Padang is relatively undiscovered. After all, the Indian Ocean is a vast sea of diverse and thriving marine life. Hundreds of little uninhabited islands rocky outcrops scatter the Indian Ocean giving refuge to both pelagic & macro marine life.

Diving at Padang is truly an exploration dream. With its amazing visibility, there’s plenty to discover, from its vast underwater topography to its macro life not found anywhere else in the world. Add the visits from its resident dolphins and Whales, and you will struggle to find any place that’s quit like it.

Best of all, a 45 minute flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is all it takes to get there! What also makes Padang so unique and separates it from most other trips you’ll do is that it not only has diving, but surfing included too, with a beach that is ideal for learning to surf. The best of both world!!!
