We know holidays are a great time to relax & explore, but they can also be a great time to learn a new skill and find a new hobby too! Learning how to scuba dive and getting your PADI open water certification is a great achievement that can take you on underwater adventures all over the world, and the gorgeous water of Bali and surrounds is the perfect location to combine a holiday with getting your certification!

With its buzzing nightlife and trendy boutiques, Seminyak is a holiday hot spot for international and domestic travelers alike. But go inland a little and you’ll find quiet Balinese streets, rice paddies, and cute local cafes. We recommend staying in this area if you want peaceful surrounds close to the action and excitement of downtown Seminyak.
