Divers from around the world have voted on their experiences of some of the most amazing dive sites to be found and have rated them to come up with a list of the 9 best diving spots.

1. The Yongala, Australia

The Yongala is a ship that was wrecked off the coast of Queensland, Australia and Townsville is the best town from which to access this dive.

The ship sank in 1911 during a cyclone.

It has been voted one of the best diving spots in the world and it is a protected site so you cannot enter the ship when diving around it.

The area, however, is teeming with life and various sea creatures and you will be able to see a range from sharks, to fish, turtles, coral and manta rays.

2. Blue Corner Wall, Palau

Palau (South East of the Philippines) offers some amazing diving, and one of the most noteworthy is the Blue Corner Wall dive site.

You will find a huge variety of sea life to discover, and divers use reef hooks to hold onto the wall and watch what is like a show put on by Mother Nature.

3. Barracuda Point, Sipadan Island

This is one of the best diving spots in Malaysia, and has also been voted one of the best in the world.

It is one of the sites where you can see thousands of barracuda feeding and swirling around you, hence the name Barracuda point, but you will also see other fish, coral and sea turtles.

Due to its more isolated location, it is not as touched by tourists.

4. Thistlegorm, Egyptian Red Sea

This is another wreck diving spot, where you will find a British ship sunk during World War II.

It was carrying supplies for war, including weapons and vehicles.

Divers recommend more than one visit to be able to explore this fascinating and large dive site.2
