  • Unfortunately this marine park, beautiful by biodiversity living there, is not maintained. The first minutes of snorkeling to reach the 'wall' from the beach are an eyesore, plastic and waste are everywhere, at the bottom, on the surface, and even in open water. What a mess... and the people apologize saying that all this comes from Manado, around... no no and no currents nothing is done to preserve this park!

  • Some great dive sites. Mostly the reef walls. A lot of different species. Anand. Sometimes, unfortunately, a lot of the power of the sea brought the plastic junk.

  • One of the best places to dive! Drop-off's with currents and lots of turtles. Pristine coral and beautiful fish, critters and more. Choose Murex as your dive partner!
