Freediving in Anambas: a once-in-a-lifetime experience
The comparatively new sport of freediving has been gaining popularity on a world-wide scale for a number of years. What's the reason for freediving's increasing popularity? For one thing, freediving is extremely accessible to everyone; all you need is a relatively clean bill of health, a pair of flippers and a good diving mask. If you can hold your breath underwater for any length of time, then you can freedive.
Now, that being said, it is of course recommended to go for a proper medical before you take the plunge. After all, all water sports, regardless how risk-free they at first glance appear, are not completely without any element of danger. You only need a foot of water to drown, so the sea is by no means an element to take lightly. Better safe than sorry.
Freediving in Anambas is an immersive way of blending with nature, quite literally. As soon as you've enjoyed the complete sense of tranquillity that comes the moment you're one with the peaceful Anambas underwater world, you, too, will be hooked to freediving.
Whether it's the mammalian dive reflex, the almost unworldy surround-sound or the endorphins that instantly kick in when you slip below the sea surface, the minute you feel the natural weightlessness and the ultimate peace of Anambas' warm tranquil water, you'll realize why freedivers love returning over and over to this inner bliss that comes with freediving.
Anambas is a still a bit of a mystery paradise that few will get to see, and fewer still get to freedive. But if you're in the South East Asia region during the March to September months and you're aching to try your hand and freediving, head for Anambas. You won't regret it.
