A very warm welcome to the Divers Resort Bangka! Set in a beautiful bay on the peaceful island of Bangka, we offer the world class scuba diving of North Sulawesi, Indonesia right on our doorstep. Ideally located east of Bunaken National Park and offering special trips to Lembeh Strait as well as Bunaken, Nomad Divers promises a wide variety of diving to satisfy divers of any experience.
Our beach resort is owned by Sophie and Simon from the UK who are delighted to welcome you to our little island home! The resort was built with the help of the local community using local materials and techniques. Our peaceful bay is home to many species of birds, cus-cus and rare tarsiers and feels like a real castaway resort!
The scuba diving in North Sulawesi, Indonesia is regarded as some of the best in the world, with the highest recorded biodiversity and thousands of fish species inhabiting some of the most unspoilt habitats in the world. Described as having the best of both worlds, Bangka is equidistant from both the muck diving capital of Lembeh strait and the wall diving haven of Bunaken. The local diving is greatly varied with over 30 dives sites within 30 minutes of the resort; you can dive coral reefs, stunning underwater pinnacles, walls, caverns, seagrass, sandy bays, muck diving, all with a barrage of diversity waiting to entice you. You can spot dolphins in our bay in the mornings and also visit the resident dugong!
Our local, experienced dive guides are specialists in finding the rare and unusual; pygmy seahorses, crocodile fish, stingrays, frog fish and eagle rays are regular sights while reef sharks, octopus and dugongs are a frequent treat! Our dive boat is capable of reaching all of the local dive sites in a short time to offer three daily dives, plus the opportunity to visit Lembeh or Bunaken. Our staff are professional and well-trained to cater for your diving needs, taking care of everything and leaving you to relax.
We are very lucky on Nomad Divers to be close to some of the world’s best dives sites, including Sauhang which is five minutes away from our beach and Batu Gosoh only ten minutes away. Experience world-class diving without having to make any arrangements yourself. Lembeh has world class muck diving and Bunaken offers amazing wall diving.
We hope to welcome you soon!!
