Go deep beneath the surface of the natural world at Bunaken National Marine Park. Over 390 species of coral and 90 species of fish make their home in this protected coastal ecosystem, along with many varieties of molluscs, mammals, and reptiles. The lands above the water possess a scenic charm, although it's beneath the water that you will find the real richness of the area. Day trips remain the most popular way to see this attraction, however, you'll find accommodations of various shapes and sizes if you wish to extend your stay.

    Great day of snorkeling. Corals are healthy, the reef is full of fish, the visibility was great. I recommend! And the water is always hot...

    The Park is still beautiful we came back after 21 years, despite increased the diving and places to sleep. Unfortunately it is sadly confirmed what I had read before I left and that is that the sea is full of plastic bottles and all kinds of plastic (I saw it float shoes, backpacks, balls). The locals blaming those of Manado city in front of Park and says to collect as they can but personally I don't think we yet understand the disaster that awaits them and consequently the potential loss of tourism and therefore wealth. For the rest if you do not see the surface is still a paradise full of fish, coral and turtles.
