Bunaken island is a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers. I haven't seen anything like that before in Indonesia.

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

Perfect place for diving. Bunaken island is surrounded by corals and there is a wall around it going deep into the sea. You can dive in wide range of depths and you'll see a lot of fishes, turtles, other marine life.
