Time to bring your kids to see the beauty of the marine life in Likupang; the rare gem from North Sulawesi. The pristine white sands and clear blue waters are already no match to others, but there are still many other exciting things you can enjoy here with your family.  While snorkeling or diving to witness the stunning underwater realm, you might also get a chance to meet the excotic green sea turtles around the area.

Yes, you can bring your whole family on a live on board experience by sailing around the waters of East Nusa Tenggara with a phinisi boat for several days. Admire the interior of this legendary ship while occasionally stopping by some gorgeous smaller islands and diving into the clear turquoise sea.
