Dubbed one of Asia’s top five tropical island paradises by CNN in 2012, Anambas Islands in Riau Islands province has been nominated in the Most Popular Diving Spot category for this year’s Indonesian Tourism Awards (API).

Other destinations competing in the category are Gosong Senggora in West Kotawaringin regency, Banda Islands in Central Maluku regency, Karampuang Island in Mamuju regency, Tomia Island in Wakatobi regency, Lembeh Strait in Bitung city, Tanjung Pasir Moyo in Sumbawa regency, Maumere Bay in Sikka regency, Tomini Bay in Tojo Unauna regency, and Tulamben in Karangasem regency.

“Bawah Island [of Anambas Islands] has the most beautiful underwater scenery; no wonder people from all over the world come here to snorkle and dive,” said Anambas Tourism, Culture, Youth and Sports Agency head Iwan K. Roni.

API 2017 consists of 15 categories with 10 nominees for each category, an increase from last year that only featured 10 categories.
