By David Pickell and Wally SiagianThe Underwater Jewel of Southeast Asia
Bali is famous the world over for its lavish Hindu ceremonies, the bright, metallic song of the gamelan, towering Agung volcano, and its lush green rice paddies. But still known only to a few is that this balmy, magical island offers some of the best diving in the world - shipwrecks, rich black sand bays, and clear, current-swept reefs. In Diving Bali, authors David Pickell and Wally Siagian - with a combined twenty-five years of experience diving this island - introduce you to the unique charms of Bali's reefs. Their tastes in sites are eclectic, ranging from a quiet, murky bay, guarded by an army of spider crabs disguised as a filed of seaweed, to rich offshore pinnacles, wild with current, swirling with great schools of fish, and patrolled by sharks.
