Dive Lembeh Strait from a Luxury Tropical Hideaway
On the leeward coast of North Sulawesi, a tiny, crooked road runs northwest of Bitung, shadowing the edge of Lembeh Strait for a few kilometers before coming to a stop at a secluded black sand beach on Kungkungan Bay. A beautifully designed restaurant, glassed on all sides, perches out over the bay. Just offshore are the grassy knolls and chalk cliffs of the Serena Islands, and behind them rises the forested ridge of Lembeh Island. Beneath the calm waters lies one of the richest marine environments in the world, all accessed from a resort offering comfort and service specifically for scuba divers.
Kungkungan Bay Resort is built on the site of an old coconut plantation, on the quiet side of North Sulawesi, away from the busy city of Manado and the crowds of divers at Bunaken. Because it sits right on the water, the resort is almost always blessed by a cooling breeze, and diving conditions are good all year round. Whether you come for the superb diving, to hike in the nearby nature reserve, or simply to relax, you will find Kungkungan Bay Resort a delightful and enticing holiday retreat.
Diving Lembeh - Under the tutelage of expert divemaster Larry Smith, Kungkungan Bay Resort (KBR) became a mecca for underwater photographers and fish watchers. Rising almost to the surface, rock pinnacles are lush with soft corals and swirling with jacks and massive, vertical schools of barracuda. The bowl of an old lava flow, ringed by jagged black rock, is crowded with delicate coral and the rare, jewel-like mandarin fish. A newly discovered wreck is exquisitely encrusted and alive with fish, octopus, and colorful invertebrates. And an inshore reef, beginning in just inches of water in front of the resort, is filled with unusual scorpionfish, sand eels, cuttlefish, frogfish, nudibranchs, and a seemingly endless array of other treasures. KBR is a macro photographer's paradise!
