Destination Resorts Overview
Indonesia is located off the coast of mainland Southeast Asia and is an archipelago of more than 1700 islands. It is one of the most diverse countries you could possibly dive, from steep walls and drop offs, to some of the most fascinating critters in the world. The climate is mostly tropical, with the rainy season from November to March, and the dry season from April to October.
This destination has so much to offer to both divers and non-divers alike, including the intriguing culture, stunning landscape, and wonderful wildlife. High adrenaline water sports will keep the thrill seekers happy for days, and a wander round a traditional market will uncover a sumptuous variety of spices, fruits, and vegetables. Nature lovers will find the reserves and scenery awe inspiring, and for those that want to immerse themselves in local history and cuisine the option for tailormade tours will provide the perfect opportunity to maximise every minute of your visit to this wonderful area.
In North Sulawesi families will find plenty of activities to enjoy together, and snorkelling has to come high on the list with the beautiful coral reefs around Bunaken Island where you can drift over school of fish and watch turtles glide by. The lovely house reef at Murex Manado is perfect for swimming and snorkelling and the sandy beaches will keep children busy for hours. A trip to Tangkoko Nature Reserve is a must for the whole family, you can take a walk through the park where you will see troops of the endemic Sulawesi Black Crested Macaque in the wild, along with the Tarsier monkeys, the world’s smallest primate.
For an action-packed experience enjoy the thrills and spills of white-water rafting or take to the air for a bird’s eye view of the landscape and surrounding islands during a tandem paragliding flight. Add to this a hike through the tropical jungle from Murex Bangka, and a trek around the crater rim at Mahawu Volcano and your holiday is certainly going to be one to remember! After all this excitement enjoy the tranquillity of Lembeh where the black sand beaches draw underwater photographers from all over the world, and for those looking to relax and rejuvenate we recommend booking a treatment at the onsite spa at Lembeh Resort, or taking a leisurely dip in the pool at NAD Lembeh before grabbing a kayak for a paddle round the bay. These are just some of the wonders that Indonesia has to offer and a visit to this destination really must be on every diver's bucket list.
