About Wakatobi Dive Resort, Indonesia
You will enjoy the tranquility and secluded location of Wakatobi; no traffic noise, no pollution, no other divers for at least 100 miles. Although we are far off the beaten track, our private charter flight (approx. cost $750) will transport you from Bali to our purpose-built airstrip in less than three hours, followed by a short boat ride to our resort and your vacation will truly begin. Located in Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia (Southeast Asia) Wakatobi is easily accessed from Europe or the USA. Many airlines offer flights to one of the major cities in Asia with transfer on to Denpasar, Bali which is the gateway (and most amazingly beautiful stopover on the way) to Wakatobi.
Kitesurf with the ocean to yourself Wakatobi offers perfect conditions for kitesurfing with large expanses of open water close to the resort and ample winds. Kitesurfers are all provided with a waterproof walkie-talkie and may tap the knowledge of our resident kitesurfing guide and tutor.
Paddle calm waters in a kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP) The shallows and mangrove forests surrounding Wakatobi are the nurseries of the reef, and rich habitat for a host of resident bird populations, invertebrates and colorful fish life. You can glide over these calm waters in a self-guided kayak or SUP tour, or go with an experienced guide who knows the best sights and sounds of this saltwater forest.
Take the Onemobaa nature trailThe Onemobaa Nature Trail leads guests from the resort into a world of pristine greenery, and on to a local village on the island. Paths crisscross the interior, providing opportunities for nature lovers and bird watchers alike. Keep your eyes open for monitor lizards, which can often be seen in an area that has been set aside as habitat for these intriguing animals.
Take the village tour Enhance your Wakatobi stay with a visit to neighboring islands, where you can engage in walking tours of villages and open-air markets and immerse yourself in the local culture. Many of our staff are from the local villages, which welcome resort guests into their communities. Bring a camera, as curious and gregarious children are often eager to pose for photos.
