Pulau Bangka is an island part of the Manado province. A few kilometers north of Sulawesi is a string of islands, with very exotic names such as Gangga, Biaro, Siau, Sangihe.
This volcanic area comprises islands going down to the far end of Mindanao, in the southern part of Philippines. Here is what is called the « Coral Triangle », one of earth’s richest regions in terms of diverse and numerous species.
Soft corals are widely represented on these drop-offs exposed to the current. This destination is a true paradise for lovers of underwater landscapes. Waters go as deep as more than 1300 meters around these islands and you will often get the chance to meet bottlenose dolphins and whales while sailing.
