In my previous posts I used to write about everything in Banyuwangi, since I live there. But, at this time, I will not do that. Cause I don't want you all bored. Many other beutiful places need to visit, one of them is Bunaken National Marine Park (Taman Nasional Laut Bunaken).
Bunaken National Marine Park is one of attractive places to come to. Its beautiful marine life can make the divers stand for a long time under the sea to enjoy diverse corals and other sea occupants. It can be the healer for those who get bored disease.
This National park was established in 1991 and one of the first marine park in the world, which is in Manado Bay, North Sulawesi. Bunaken National Park itself is devided into two parts, the southern and the northern part. The northern part covers five island (Bunaken, Manado Tua, Mantehage, Nain, Siladen), Molas-Wori costal area. And the sourthern part covers Arakan-Wawontulap coastal area. So, other than diving, you can explore the island as well, either by foot or boat. And another way you can also rent submarine with the glass wall, which is definitely more expensive, to enjoy the beuty of undersea life.
The colorful coral and fish pamper your eye and you will not want to go up to the shore. You can even feel to be mermaid for a while, swimming with the fish and flow of waves. You can also observe marine life closer. It's such an awesome thing to do. And it is proper place for divers and underwater photographer. You can take the awesome pictures to immortalize the memorable occasion, even buy marine craft for souvenir. If you hungry after the exploration, there are some of cafes and restaurant along Manado and it's archipelago, with their typical food, such as sea food, Manado porridge, foods made from coconut.
I never go there, but I has a desire to step my food there. Hope you like it.
