where to begin?
The food, so delicious, breakfast, lunch and dinner all included with lots of choices of western food and local food. Everybody eats together.
The accommodation. There are the cheapies, a bit run down (a bit like me), the mid-range, and the fancy places next door but still run by the same people. So pick your budget. They all have in common wonderful views and are clean and comfortable.
The sunsets. the best I have seen. Come and see for yourself/yourselves.
The diving. Sven is the best instructor. If you have never dived before it is the best place to learn. He really cares about your safety. Nothing dodgy about this operation.
If you are already experienced the drop-off is amazing.
Snorkelling. You are welcome to go out on the dive boat usually free of charge. If they are going a long way there is a small charge.Then jump off the boat and .... there are no words to descibe. Look at the photos. Or swim straight out from the beach and .... again wow.
Ultimate fantasy tropical beach getaway. Laze on the sand, cook some food on the beach, hang out with the locals, play some music, watch the sunset.
This is a local family run resort and you will become part of the family.
Remember this is an island and internet and phone connections are not the best. And sometimes the weather is not the best so be prepared if it takes a while to get to the island. The resort has their own boat so they drop people off, do the shopping and then pick you up. all done on island time. or there is a public boat. Or you can hire your own boat.
The rubbish from Manado is a problem.
