I'm a solo female seeking advice as to where to add 5 days (+/-) on to a trip to Lembeh. I'll be spending 10 days in Lembeh doing macro in muck (LOVE muck - but looking for other). I'd prefer not to have to fly back to the mainland AND to do something other than muck. Any suggestions as to resorts or boats that I could get to from Manado/Lembeh? Thanks so much. This is a big, scary adventure for me as a solo. Advice welcomed! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :-)
Bangka Island , beautiful reefs covered with orange softcorals . Murex resort , quite rustic but very well located directly on the beach . From there you can do a couple of dives at Paradise's pier ,good for macro and wide angle ( but sometimes the vis is challenging for w/a )
From Lembeh you can do a day trip to Tangkoko , is a jungle with great chances to see and photograph hornbills , black macaques and tarsiers and some other birds and wildlife (can recommend you a great guide if you are interested ) . I was there 2 days last october and had a great experience .
