Diving at Happy Gecko Dive Resort Bunaken


Happy Gecko is a small and cosy dive resort on Liang Beach Bunaken.  

This resort -also known as CIcak Senang resort- offers good quality bungalow style budget accommodation for divers including full board.


There is a full service dive center at the resort. Every day the comfortable Happy Gecko dive boat will leave Liang Beach for a full morning dive trip. For snorkeling you don't have to go far either: there are excellent snorkeling sites right in front of the resort. 


The location of the resort,  at Liang Beach, right in the middle of the island, is a perfect starting point to explore the traditional villages and other beaches of Bunaken Island after a day of diving.
