Lembeh Strait

Reviewed By allisonde7890 - Paris, France

I stayed at the Kungkungan bay resort and had some excellent guides. You need a good guide in order to actually find a lot of the critters. It is easy to miss something like a frog fish, which blends right in with the seaweed or muck. It is super fun to look around and try to identify things. I even saw some tiny seahorses that were the same color and pattern as this coral they were living on! I definitely recommend it.

Reviewed By RCadmus - Oakdale, California

During a dive holiday in Lembeh, we had the opportunity to spend an afternoon hiking through Tangkoko. We saw all the creatures we were promised. The hike required one to have some physical conditioning as it is through the jungle with some paths. Not dangerous. The guides were excellent at spotting the animals and telling us about their characteristics etc. Great experience!

Reviewed By Pete H - London, England, United Kingdom

I recently did two days walking with Ateng ( [email protected]) in Tangkoko. He was a superb guide who showed a deep knowledge of the forest. We found bears, macaques, toucans, kingfishers and Tarsiers. Ateng guided at a good pace and stopped for breaks. He was able to point out several species of birds and interesting plants. He also picked me up from my guesthouse and charged a reasonable price. I would gladly recommend Ateng for future tours.

Ekowisata Pasir Panjang Pantai Kahona

Reviewed By Bama K

Ecotourism kahona Beach is one of the beautiful Beaches in northern Sulawesi. Located on the Lembeh island, part of the city of Bitung separated by a Lembeh strait. Distance from the city of Manado about 1.5 to 2 hours. When entering the beach area we will be greeted by a small bridge that will take us past a lot of mangrove trees to get to the beach. The series of mangrove plants on either side of the bridge adds a wonderful impression and beautiful on the beach kahona. Once on shore, I was a little surprised because it was not sand that was there. But small corals that cover almost all parts of the coast. You should use footwear that does not feel pain when walking. Kahona beach has calm waves so it is suitable for just bathing or camping on this beach. Because it is a new beach, not many visitors who visit this place. So, enjoy your relaxing time there.

We logeerden in Batu Putih en we maakten gedurende 2 dagen excursies met Ateng, vooral om vogels te spotten.De erste ochtend gedurende 5u in het nationaal park: Ateng weet waar de endemische vogels te vinden. Daarnaast zagen we ook het spookdiertje (Tarsius). Heel wat vogels gespot, geen zware wandeling. In de late namiddag op zoek (en gevonden) naar de Sulawesi Dwerguil.
Tijdens de ochtend van de tweede dag keken we vanop een heuvel naar de vogels welke in de canopy leven. En tijdens de namiddag een boottocht naar de mangrove meer noordelijk vooral om de Langsnavelijsvogel te zien. Ateng kent de streek zo goed dat hij weet waar de kans het grootst is om bepaalde vogels te zien.
