21 Mar 2022·By Ivan Zulfikar
Likupang beach looks beautiful and charming with sparkling water. In addition to its beautiful white sand, this beach also has one of the most lively marine life. The underwater scenery is so enchanting to see. Snorkeling and diving are a must when you spend time here.
Likupang is a hidden gem that only divers know about. To reach the beach itself it takes 1.5 hours from the city of Manado. Dive centers and resorts on small islands off the coast of Likupang are most favored by international divers. In fact, one of them has always been one of the top 25 dive resorts in the world.
Since the government has accelerated tourism development in North Sulawesi, this city has become a marine tourism destination that has only emerged after Bunaken.

Toll access to Likupang has also been planned. The plan is that the Manado-Bitung toll road, which was just inaugurated on February 25, 2022, will develop its access so that the Manado-Likupang route can be reached within 30 minutes.
