Nabucco Island has beautiful pictures. We share it with you.




Did you ever dream about your own "Robinson Island"? Spending holiday far away from civilisation, from hectic and stress, from noise and every-day-life? We found the paradise, located northeast of Indonesian Kalimantan (Borneo) in the Celebes Sea.

To be found next to Derawan, Sangalakki and Maratua - well known under divers - the protected Nabucco Island with a size of only 20.000 m2 offers pure nature. This is the home of one of the last populations of coconut crabs as well as many other very rare species. While doing trips to Maratua you can observe apes, bats, and diverse clases of birds in its natural environment.

The resort was set around the existing flora - no single palm, no single tree was cut. Nabucco Island shows the perfect coexistence of luxury and ecological thinking: the sewage is disposed environmental tolerably, sweet water is obtained by solar energy. The room furnishing with finest regional wood and lifelike materials complete the natural exclusivity.

Gustav from Sulawesi is our Chef, he is former chef of Novotel Sulawesi. The morning starts with a rich breakfast from fresh juices and self-baked bread, typical light Asian dishes are offered for lunch and a fantastic 5-course menu is waiting for dinner. Vegetarian dishes are available as well. To round up a perfect day you can relax with a glass of our well-sorted wine range or a light fruity cocktail.

The modern Extra Divers Nabucco Island with reception, drying and storeroom is equipped with the latest Aqualung utensils.

The best spots are almost directly in front of your hut - diver's dream become reality with swarms of eagle rays, hammerhead sharks, tunas, turtles and many more. Also macro-photographer will find the places around Nabucco Island a very good place to hunt for subjects. Sangalakki,where manta rays can observed daily, is just a 50 min lasting boat ride away, and at Kakaban and Maratua you can admire the flora and fauna of the very rare sweet water lakes. The dive site around Nabucco Island are rightly some of the best worldwide - there must be a reason for the natives to call it "big fish country"!.
