Bomba and the rest of the Togian islands have plenty to offer. After diving or on your day off you can do a lot of things.
GO SWIMMING OR SNORKELING
The first thing most of our customers do after arrival is jump to the sea! We have a small private beach and a jetty, which are perfect for snorkeling or swimming. There is lots to see directly in front of the resort, including a small wreck, which lies in 12 meters. More spectacular coral landscapes can be easily reached by doing a snorkeling trip to Taupan, Bomba Atoll or to the Barrier reef.
SWIMM WITH STINGLESS JELLYFISH
Make a day trip to the stingless jellyfish lake (read more). The trip can also be combined with diving in the B24 Bomber plane wreck or transport to your next destination in the Togeans.
LOOK OUT FOR WILDLIFE, SPOT A TARSIUS!
Directly in our dive resort you can observe lots of butterflies and birds, f.ex. sun birds, hawks and kingfishers. We are lucky to have usually two Sulawesi bear cuscus' hanging out in a tree in the resort premises.
We hear the calls of tarsius every evening when the sun is setting, and if you are patient and a good spotter, you might find one jumping between trees.
Monitor lizards tend to come for a visit early in the mornings when our dogs are still asleep. You also might also see a harmless coconut tree snake jumping from one tree to another. In a nearby Tumbulawa village you can observe how hornbills fly to the mangrove to sleep during sunset. Truly a nature lovers paradise!
You can do a 1,5 km long marked circular hike by yourself, or a longer, guided jungle walk and reach Kuling Kinari or Bomba Village by foot. Combined with a bat cave! We have some cool stuff on the way: fruit trees, locals producing palm sugar (you might get to taste) and if you get lucky, you might spot some wildlife!
VISIT THE BAJAU
Nearby us are three seagypsy villages: Kuling Kinari, Taupan and Siatu. See how the former sea nomads have now adapted to villages but still feed and live out of the sea.
GO KAYAKING OR STAND UP PADDLING
We have 2 kayaks and one SUP if you want to explore the nearby beaches and bays. It's not mandatory to bring Lumi, our adventure loving dog :)
