Attraction details
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We went on a day trip to the island for snorkeling. The package price was a bit expensive but its all worth it. The island is very beautiful with stunning view of crystal clear water. While snorkeling, we could see lots of colourful fishes, underwater corals, etc. There were two snorkeling sessions. The first one was before the lunch and the second one was after the lunch. Must not miss this when you visit KK.

I stay here for 3d2n @ mari mari lodge. The water is very clear but the beach is not so clean due to there is a fisherman village there which I think they don't know how to take care of the beach. U can see plastic bottle by the beach, so it is such a waste.

You can purchase food at Mari Mari canteen which is not cheap. Alternatively, You can walk over the fisherman village and buy some food. Recommended to buy fish from them which is very fresh and and mari mari canteen to cook for you for a fee. You also can buy lobsters from the fisherman village.

Recommended to stay 2d1n is sufficient for non-diver.

Been many islands and sea beach, Mantanani is an ideal place to snorkelling with a nice view and convenient price, around 90 usd for a day tour.

Normally the day tour includes the transportation, two snorkelling * 45mins and the lunch.

Enjoy and have fun, and remember your sun block!

I stayed 1 night at the island. Really very peaceful. The weather was excellent, so snorkelling was wonderful. i stayed at Mari mari backpackers. The lodge provided little activities, so guest had to roam around by themselves.
