A very warm welcome to Nomad Divers Bangka! Set in a beautiful bay on the peaceful island of Bangka, we offer the world-class scuba diving of North Sulawesi, Indonesia right on our doorstep. Ideally located east of Bunaken National Park and offering special trips to Lembeh Strait as well as Bunaken, Nomad Divers promises a wide variety of diving to satisfy divers of any experience. We are delighted to welcome you to our little island home! The resort was built with the help of the local community using local materials and techniques. Our peaceful bay is home to many species of birds, monitor lizards and rare tarsiers and feels like a real castaway resort!

Owners Hilde & Marijn

With a resident pod of spinner dolphins in the bay, seahorses on our house reef and a friendly dugong grazing on the abundant seagrass, the aquatic environment is healthy and blissfully free of crowds. The diving is fantastic all year round with about 25 dives sites within 30 minutes of the resort and offers you the chance to spot unusual species – look out for eagle rays, dugongs, frogfish, scorpionfish, mandarin fish, pygmy seahorses and much more – we have the highest marine diversity in the world! We are proud to be part of the North Sulawesi Watersports Association who try to protect the local ecosystems, and we are one of the founding members of the Bangka Conservation Fund, made up of resorts on and around Bangka, which fundraises to take care of our marine ecosystems and communities around Bangka.

Our accommodation consists of traditional Minahasan wooden bungalows with ensuite bathrooms all built by local carpenters. Stay in our beach bungalow and go to sleep listening to the waves lapping on the beach, or in one of our jungle cottages where you might spot a tarsier, flying lizards or a ruddy kingfisher, or book into our backpacker rooms right on the beach!

You might even see a Dugong!!!

Dry out and unwind in the bar on our secluded beach with fantastic views towards Lembeh and experience delicious local cuisine fresh from our kitchen. Come and experience the unspoilt beauty of Bangka island with Nomad Divers – we cater for divers of all abilities and we offer the full range of PADI courses from those diving for the first time to anyone wishing to further their diving knowledge or begin their professional career on one of our popular Divemaster internships!
