City break in Sulawesi Island. Active leisure ideas for Sulawesi Island - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Sulawesi When you come to Sulawesi, don’t miss the opportunity to dive at least once. There are uniquely beautiful reefs all along the 6 thousand kilometers of the shore, which make diving here a rich emotional experience. Experienced divers say it’s better to dive in the north part of the island. The perfect places for observing underwater attractions are Bunaken, a National Marine Park, an Aquatoria near Manado, and Lembeh Strait. You can also visit the Bangka Island. There are not so many tourists on Sulawesi yet, which means you won’t discover the underwater world in a crowd of other people. The water and air temperatures are comfortable all year round, so on the north part of the island, you can dive even in the middle of winter. The divers should better visit South and Central Sulawesi during the warm seasons.
Sulawesi Island offers excellent conditions for beach holidays, as it has attractive parts of the coast almost everywhere around. Sandy Pijar Beach is an attractive location, especially for … Open
The Bunaken Island can offer 13 websites for the diving fans, where everyone can find out about the diversity of Indonesian coral fish. Diving along the walls will allow you to enjoy the beautiful corals, sharks, stingrays and majestic hump-head wrasses. The Lembeh Strait will please photographers and those, who like exotic things. Seahorses and spiders, eels, crabs and unusually-shaped shrimp – all of this you may see, while diving here. Black stingrays, sharks, and morays will meet a diver, who will visit Manado. Soft corals and flocks of tropical fish are located close to Bangka. Kapoposang island and Lanjukang island can also attract divers, as there is something to see for amateurs, as well as for experienced divers.
Please notice, that only the north part of the island has the well-developed infrastructure for tourists and divers. Snorkeling fans will also like it here – multiple underwater world representatives, good visibility and an opportunity to easily rent a boat, creat almost perfect conditions. In the north part of Sulawesi, you can attend training in a diving school and get an international certificate. Though, if you don’t have any desire to dive or you got tired of all the beauty of the underwater world, you will always find what to do on the island. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
A choice of hotels on Sulawesi is just perfect, as there are accommodation places of different categories. One of the most prestigious hotels on the island, Aryaduta, can be found in … Open
Sulawesi will please anyone with the diversity of the animal world. No jokes here – you won’t meet more than half of the local inhabitants anywhere else in the world. Apart from the bats, almost 98% of the local animals are unique. Tarsiers, Rhinoceros Hornbills, and black apes, a deer-pig Babirussa – those are just a few representatives of fauna, which you can see at the Tangkoko Nature Reserve. This Nature Reserve is located in the north part of the island. The admirers of the virgin forests and amazing beaches should visit the Buton Island. You can get there from the north-east part of Sulawesi.
Sulawesi If you need to travel between the two remote cities of the island, check the offers from the local airlines. The central part of Sulawesi is covered with jungles and if there are any roads, they can’t be called acceptable under any circumstances. The public transportation system can also test your nerves – local drivers are quite arrogant. You can always rent a car in any big city. If you would like to have a trip just for the two of you, there are some routes on Sulawesi, which will give you unforgettable feelings. For example, you can climb on a real volcano, visit the ancient graves or look at the cave paintings, made by the first settlers. If you don’t have a map, or you just don’t feel like looking for the right road to any given landmark, turn to the guide at any big hotel.  Next: Best beaches
