We just returned from a combined trip to Bunaken and Raja Ampat. This included our third stay in the Living Colours Dive Resort on Bunaken Island. As always we enjoyed seeing all our friends and diving in the wonderful reefs of the Bunaken National Park.
The stay at LC was nice and enjoyable. The bungalows are comfortable and still well kept. Aldy and his team in the kitchen produce good meals and there is always plenty.
If you plan to stay in LC it is important to know, that the resort is located on a hill, so you have to do a couple steps from the beach. On the other hand you are rewarded with a wonderful view and a nice breeze in the evening. The beach is located behind a belt of mangroves, which are protected, so it might not be the ideal place for a beach holiday. It is known that Bunaken is somtimes hit by plastic garbage coming from Manado (a big city and the starting point to bunaken) the locals do what they can and especially after the big floods in Manado they have done a big job cleaning the beaches.
So why should I go to Bunaken and Living Colours? FOR DIVING, MEETING GREAT PEOPLE, FAMOUS BEACH PARTYS and to ENJOY YOURSELF.
As for ourselves, we will be back for a fourth stay.More
