Indonesia Travel Guide


Bunaken Island is inhabited by about 3,000 people. It is famous all over the world for its magnificent coral reefs opposite Manado harbor in the north of the city. The reefs are 10 kilometers long, measured from the Eastern tip to the Western. They are located in a marine park that is internationally acclaimed as one of the best in the world.

At Liang Bay you will be able to see fishes of all colors, shapes and sizes with naked eyes, when they dart around among the coral stands. You can enjoy the wonders of Bunaken by taking a ride on a glass-bottomed boat, by snorkeling or skin-diving. Some fish species are found nowhere else.
