Lembeh Island and the Lembeh Strait are a magnet for professional underwater photographers as well as expert and enthusiastic amateur divers from around the world. Expect gorgeous, pristine beaches that are a far cry from Bunaken National Marine Park’s more popular strands. Lembeh also boasts several black sand beaches that are a sight to behold! The Island is best known for the overabundance of rare marine life found in its tropical waters. There is much to explore and discover – encounter rare species of octopi, exotic seahorses, frogfish and unusual nudibranchs during reef dives and adventurous night dives in the dramatic phosphorus-lit diving spots. There are also the remnants of half a dozen shipwrecks worth exploring. Understandably, the region sports numerous scuba diving centers as well.
