Snorkeling and scuba diving in Sumatra is fantastic!

Sumatra after all, is the 6th largest Island in the world, so it has plenty of coastline. Surrounded by tropical waters, Sumatra has some great coral reefs and wildlife living. Getting to some of the fantastic reefs takes time and effort but well worth it.
