Just east of the Indonesian island of Kalimantan/Borneo, you find a remote chain of islands. On the very southern eastern tip of a lagoon you find the hidden gem that is Nunukan and Extra divers. This is a diver's paradise, where you can mix up sublime reef diving with adrenalin pumping shark dives and gaze on manta being cleaned. It's time to forget about the rest of the world. Dive, eat and enjoy the remote isolation of Nunkan resort.

Nunukan has been lovingly built into a small island - the island and resort are 1! Nunukan boasts 22 comfortable and spacious bungalows, touching the island's sandy southern shores with views over the lagoon. The bungalows all have air con and a sea view patio and day bed, that opens out onto the white sandy beach. Take your siesta in the shade or lap up the warm Indonesian rays! All of the bungalows are en suite.

To the north of the island you find the main buildings, with shaded paths leading you between the verdant gardens, right up to the water's edge. The restaurant is open air, and handily right next to the bar. The food is Asian Pacific - you can chose between half board or full board, although we recommend you enjoy the benefits of full board for the ultimate experience. There is a small shop, stock with essentials, and of course the all important dive centre. Grab a tank - it's time to explore that exceptional 4km long house reef! Spa massage services are available on request.

Nunukan is the place to head for outstanding reef diving. Long dives along lavish coral gardens await. Take a special trip to Sangalaki to watch manta being cleaned or head to Kakaban for the jelly fish lake. From big to small, the diving is diverse and no body knows it better than the team than Extra Divers Nunukan.

  • 4km of house reef to explore with boat drop off/pick up service
  • Manta at Sangalaki and jelly fish lake at Kakaban accessible by boat - local surcharge applies
  • 2 speed boats
  • Range of PADI & SSI courses
  • Nitrox available for a local charge

The team at Nunukan are professional, experienced and passionate about their corner of paradise. You can take PADI and SSI courses in the resort or simply enjoy their eagle eyes as the guides show you around. House reef dives are usually unguided but for a small local surcharge you can be accompanied by your very own spotter!

One of the undeniable hlighlights at Nunukan is the house reef. At 4km long, it feels endless underwater - as standard your diving package will include unguided house reef diving so just grab a tank and enjoy! As you'd expect from Indonesia, the macro life is spectacular, with all manner of small critters to hunt out. It's also a great spot for turtles and rays cruise by. The "tuk-tuk" boat service will drop you off or pick you up along the house reef. Mix things up with a special trip to Sangalaki to see the manta or swim with jellyfish at Kakaban. The northern pelagic sites such as Big Fish Country are also accessible as day trips.
