Sadly, a great beach doesn’t mean it’s a great dive spot as well. But sometimes the stars are all aligned in your favour for a glorious experience both above and below the water…..
Check out our dedicated Diving pages for some of our top diving destinations. Here we mention some unique favourite regions which are not mentioned there...
South Africa Diving & Beach Spots
The pristine sub-tropical beaches such as Mabibi in northern KwaZulu Natal of South Africa have been left undiscovered by divers. This is due to their relative lack of accessibility. So here the pristine reefs offer a quality diving experience in a true wilderness environment. Enjoy spectacular coral formations and a bewildering range of beautiful reef fish as well as turtles, manta ray, dolphins and sharks.
Lake Malawi is one of the world's top spots for fresh water scuba diving. No salt to wash off, no weight belts, no currents. At 450 metres above sea-level it ticks the box for diving at altitude too. Plus you can easily combine diving with a safari either in Malawi itself or in the game-rich South Luangwa Park of Zambia.
In the far north of Mozambique is the remote Quirimbas Archipelago, idyllic tropical islands with powdery coral shores and unspoilt diving opportunities. Some islands are tiny and uninhabited. Others are home to fishing communities as well as some small low-key luxury lodges.

Hope to return for a third visit"Helpful, patient, understanding. Did not meet anyone face to face but seemed friendly over the email. Although the trip was basically our design, it was good to work with Peter in deciding the actual locations and final route. He took all the “admin” hassle away – car hire, arranging accommodation etc. which meant we could just arrive and enjoy the trip. The final printed trip programme was excellent.

Exceeded our expectations"We absolutely loved EVERYTHING and our trip absolutely exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for your help in planning our trip and organizing it as well as you did. " Mrs Elena G, UK
