Formosa Travel Diary: Bunaken Island

There are some serious perks to spending half my time in Jakarta and one of them is to be able use a free weekend to visit of the most beautiful spots I've ever been; Bunaken island in North Sulawesi.

I don't have my dive certificate but that didn't stop me from taking these pictures of coral life while snorkeling. While I'm in Perth for the Christmas holidays I might have a play and make some sketches of them.

Glorious first evening.

We jumped straight outta the boat into this (15 min ride from our room). It felt like a David Attenborough documentary.

This magic 25-50m coral cliff surrounds most of the island. In the final photo below you can see the dramatic colour shift where the coral cliff ends and the deep sea begins.
