60 Taka Bonerate National Park



Taka Bonerate National Park is home to the third biggest atoll in the world after Kwajifein in the Marshall Isles and Suvadiva in the Moldiva Isles. The total area of the atoll is about 220,000 hectares with coral reefs spreading over 500 kmē.



The topography of the Park is unique. The atoll consists of a chain of islands of dry coral and a large flat sunken reef, forming a large number of islands. The coral islands are interspersed by narrow, deep, sheer-walled straits. On the coral flats there are small, deep pools surrounded by coral reefs. At low tide, dry land is clearly visible, dotted by water flooding into the small pools.



Taka Bonerate National Park is set up to fulfill functions of protecting coral reefs, preserving marine biodiversity, and providing a sustainable utilization of living resources and their ecosystems. The Marine national park is arranged by coral reef and sea-grass ecosystems. The types of exiting ecosystems are being interaction constructing ecological process which is resulting a richness of marine life in the area.



Three types of coral reefs exist in the national park namely barrier reefs, fringing reefs and atolls. On some spots, fringing reefs are signed by drop-off reefs. Emerging atolls on surface sea create many barren islands spreading over the area from north, called Macan Islands, to south, called Pasitallu Islands.



Marine circumstances surrounding those islands are habitants which is, as if, producing unlimited fish resources. Coral reef ecosystems are dominant in the national park. There are 16 families and 231 coral species arrangement the ecosystems. Dominant coral reefs are Acroporidae, Fungidae, and Dendrophylladae Families.

61 Bantimurung Bulusaraung National Park



The Nature Park Of Bantimurung in Maros of south sulawesi, 50 Km from Makassar city or 15 Km from MAros. this place you can have with 1 hour from makassar. this place very compatible for travelling with family. the miniatur of butterfly and artifact of bantimurung traveling has name The best family holiday.



Maros Regency - 45 kilometers northwards Makassar

This tower shape karst is a part of Karst Maros-Pangkep area, its the second largest karst in the world and has been defined as a World Heritage Site. Karst or commonly known as stone forest is the result of the limestone dissolying (residual karst) process. More info about Karst Maros-Pangkep will be published on separate article.



This National Park sustain certain species of flora, the ebony that Balinese craftmens use to make statues are supplied from this area.



Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 – 1913) called this place as The Kingdom of Butterfly (Archipelago Malay) because there are so many species of butterly that live and proliferating in this National Park.



Bantimurung waterfall, beautiful butterflies, prehistoric caves, and the stone forrest.. wow!! sounds like Indiana Jones world. Travelling to that place could be an incredible experience.





Unfortunately, this place is not properly managed by government. The road towards Bantimurung are heavily damaged, minimum supporting facilities, some species of butterflies disappeared, the number of this “beautiful little fairy” continues to decrease.



And the worst thing is the fact that the beauty of this stone forest is slowly destroyed by Tonasa and Bosowa mining activities.

66 Malimbu



The roads which leaves Ampenan towards the north, passes two small mountains before it reaches a long, bow-shaped beach. On the mornings after moonless nights these hills offer the best view over the sea, which is scattered with small fishing boats with colorful sails, which return to the beach north of Ampenan.



When the sunsets the fishermen leave the beach in one long line their lights create a nice play of lights, which can be seen from most hotels on Senggigi beach.



The first of the two small mountains, which are passed from Ampenan, named Batu Layar, contains the dedicated grave of one of the Islamic saints (wali), which spread Islam on Lombok. The local population prays near a shrine close to the road. It's possible to walk from the summit of the second mountain to the Balinese temple along Batu Bolong beach.




The hotel colony grows with the day and slowly crawls towards the north along the coast. The hotels are built along a road, which runs to Pemenang, twenty km north of Batu Bolong.



The road passes several hilla, which offer very nice views over the coconut trees along the beach and the sea. The old road to Pemenang is located more inland. It starts in Mataram, passes Rembiga and Gunung Sari villages, which has a busi day market, and then ascends around the village of Sidemen.

67 Maratua Island



The waters around Pulau Maratua are still a secret to be discovered. There is something for all types of divers.



Whether you want to see the large pelagic life, search for the smallest an weirdest critters, snorkel in a huge jellyfish lake or watch mandarin fish mate on our house reef: there is more to see than you can imagine!And it is no exaggeration that Maratua is the Turtle Capital of Indonesia: because of the turtle breeding grounds we guarantuee you will see turtles when you dive here. In fact, it will be pretty hard to make a dive without turtles.



Due to the constant currents, you will find very healthy reefs and excellent coral growth. The variety and size of the corals around Maratua and nearby islands can hardly be found in other popular and famous sites.



But the best thing about the currents is the underwater visibility. This visibility rivals most other dive sites and it is no exception to have a visibility of 100ft/30m and (much) more.



Diving around Maratua means diving with relaxed currents. You will find an amazing underwater life. But if you enjoy thrills: dive in the soaring currents of the channel: a narrow opening in the reef through which water flows into the Maratua lagoon. You will see sharks, rays, large schools of pelagic fish, etc. And at the end of the day you jump from the jetty into our house reef, to check out the mating mandarin fish, the stargazers, leaffish, cuttlefish, and a lot more. The sunset dives here are famous!



Maratua and the surrounding islands offer excellent wall dives and spectacular drop-offs. While other dive sites have a gentle or steep reefs. There is a great variety in underwater geography, so no two dives will be the same.



Once a week (depending on the weather and sea conditions) we visit the islands of Sangalaki and Kakaban. Sangalaki is famous for it’s large schools of manta rays.



It is not unusual to find schools of up to 40-50 manta rays!
On Kakaban you will dip into the 5 square km jellyfish lake. An amazing sight! But we will also make some spectacular dives along the reef walls where we may run into grey sharks, leopard sharks or an occasional hammerhead.
