    Destination Information

    North Sulawesi - Manado

    This region of Indonesia is a little different than the rest, mostly due to Christianity being the majority religion here. This religious background heavily influences culture and cuisine, with meat featuring heavily, especially pork and various fowl. Historically North Sulawesi was once the center of the Dutch colony in Asia, which has left traces of European culture. This history also means it is a little easier to enjoy a cold beer here than many other parts of the country!

    The region has a center of volcanic hillslopes, thriving with life and vast rainforests. Along the coast there are low lying fertile lands, skirted by beautiful offshore coral reefs. Streams run down from the hills and onto these plains, making them perfect for farming. 

    It’s called ‘The Land of Smiling People’ for good reason, the people here are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Outstanding natural beauty, delicious cuisine, and friendly locals make travelling here a dream.

     

    Bastianos Bunaken Dive Resort

    Bastianos Bunaken is a PADI Dive Resort located on the beachfront of beautiful Liang Beach on the western side of Bunaken Island, with quick access to all the dive sites of Bunaken National Marine Park. Accommodation is in traditional wooden rooms with western style bathrooms and hot water.

    The ocean in front of the resort is perfect for swimming and snorkeling with the coral reef dropping off just 40 metres from the resort.
