Whereas the Southern section consists entirely of coastal area, the Northern section has, beside coastal area, 5 islands within its boundaries.
These island are: Bunaken (after which the park is named), Siladen, Manado Tua, Mantehage and Nain. In total almost 22.000 people live inside the park, divided over approximately 30 villages (kampungs). The park has been populated for many generations. Long before this area was declared National Marine Park in 1991. They mainly live from fishing and farming.
Though Bunaken is already a marine park for almost 25 years, It is only since 1998 that there also came some real effective protection. With the introduction of an entrance fee in 2001 the park became a role model for other marine reserves and in 2003 even global winner of the prestigious Britisch Airways,"Tourism for Tomorrow" Award.
Today the Bunaken park is one of the best diving area's in the world. Clear blue, warm water, dramatic drop off's, an enormous variety of corals, big pelagic's, small critters, whales and dolphins………. too much to name it all. A true paradise for beginning / experienced divers and photographers.
