Favicon du Selayar Turtle Bay Resort

Activities

Lots of activities for everyone, divers or not, to make the most of your stay.

Snorkeling and Diving

Dreaming of an uncrowded diving experience in Indonesia? Or simply want to go snorkeling…

Selayar Island, located in the Flores Sea south of Sulawesi, is a little piece of paradise.

Moreover, it boasts a stunning drop-off called “the magic wall,” as well as remarkable underwater biodiversity among the densest in the archipelago. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced diver, numerous sites await you, with others still waiting to be explored…

For those who are not keen on snorkeling or scuba diving every day, we also offer other essential activities.

Our TAKAEXPRESS Boat

Our TAKAEXPRESS boat is ready to take you on diving trips or day excursions (schedule and rates available at the restaurant).

It’s equipped with two 150hp 4-stroke HONDA engines, making it quiet and capable of safely carrying up to 10 passengers to various destinations.

Waterway Strolls

Enjoy our paddleboard and traditional local canoe at any time, available for you to take leisurely rides on the water.

Rediscover those simple moments when time stands still and gaze upon the stunning landscapes and underwater wonders of Selayar Island.

Full-Day Boat Excursions

We offer several full-day destinations aboard the Takaexpress:

  • The island of Bahuluang: with its cave and deserted beaches.
  • Makam karang,” a coral reef that moves with the currents.
  • The island of Tambologan and its deserted coconut tree-lined beaches.
  • The island of Poulasi and its trail on the hills overlooking the sea…
  • And of course, an immersion into the Takabonerate Marine National Park and its rare inhabited islands…

And now, we invite you to come on board…

Takabonerate National Park... a must-see!!!

Play Video

Takabonerate National Park (“coral stacked on sand” in Bugis) is located in the northwestern part of the Flores Sea, around 70 km from our beach.

Our Takaexpress boat can take you there in 2.5 hours for a day of diving, snorkeling, or simply for moments of exploration like encountering a whale during the journey, being surrounded by baby sharks on Tinabo Island, or discovering a village and its population on a remote island.

The park includes 15 mostly deserted islands, including Tinabo Island which is the gateway (payable).

It is the world’s third-largest atoll, following Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands and Suvadiva in the Maldives. The total area of the atoll is approximately 2,200 square kilometers, with coral reefs covering around 500 square kilometers. Administratively, the park is part of the Selayar Islands archipelago.

In 2015, the park was recognized as a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Indonesian Cooking Classes

Our cook will be delighted to involve you in the preparation of the dishes!

Scooter Rental

Scooters are available for you to explore our beautiful island and meet its always-smiling inhabitants.

We offer the option to embark early in the morning on our boat, which will take you to the small port of Patumbukan to pick up your scooter and an island map with points of interest. For those who prefer, a full-day island discovery by car with our guide is also possible.

Later in the evening, we will return to the same location to pick you up and bring you back to our beach.
