I have been coming here regularly since 2002. This is a perfect place for casual divers, as there is very little current, warm water and the sites are all REALLY close to the resorts, and everything is done for you. In many ways easier than a liveaboard, with obviously more space back at the resort..
The speciality of Lembeh is black sand, where lots of smal, unusual critters hang out, notably mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, every kind & color of frogfish, ornate ghostpipefish, cockatoo flounder, nudibranches galore, Bobbit worms, tiger shrimp etc.
Great place to learn and practice underwater photography, as macro is the name of the game and that's easier to start with.
Some people think Lembeh is all black sand, which is fantastic in itself, but there are also white sand and coral dives in the near vicinity. And the sites at the end of Lembeh Island (a whole 15 minutes from most resorts) are actually better than most Manado dives.
There's a reason why every other issue of a dive magazine will have pictures from Lembeh. It is consistent, fascinating, prolific and continues to surprise. After over 300 dives here, I will see something I've never seen before on most dives.
And the resorts are all very comfortable and affordable.
