Another paradise in Indonesia, a great place to admire the beauty of God's creation, the ocean environment is still so natural. A great place to dive or snorkeling. Can't dive or swim? don't worry, a special boat can give you the view you need.

Can't recommend the reefs of Bunaken enough. What a gorgeous part of the world! Snorkeling is excellent too. Just 1 hour from Manado by boat Bunaken is another world of extraordinary beauty, pristine reefs and coral and healthy sea life. Not to be missed if you are in South-East Asia.

Your appreciation depends on how you arrange the visit. If you are traveling and using a guided tour, most of the shown items will standard: coral reefs, snorkeling and feeding fishes. If you are specializing on diving, and using one of the operators at the island, you will find a bit much more experience. In general, the coral reefs in... More
