Set near cliffs by a white sand beach in northern Sulawesi, Pulisan Jungle Beach Resort is a great, laid-back place in which to relax and get away from it all. There is great snorkelling and diving, a long beach and a forested hinterland, home of many macaques and birds. The nearest road is 15 minutes away.
The simple accommodation is in clean and comfortable wooden cottages that face the sea. There are two deluxe beachfront bungalows that have a western-style shower (with lukewarm water) and a large veranda. Four of the bungalows feature mandi (traditional basin filled with water to be used for showering) instead of a western shower but all feature a western-style lavatory. There are two other smaller bungalows with Indonesian squat loos.
The resort is run by staff from the local village and the restaurants serves delicious meals, often featuring fresh seafood and locally grown vegetables, and can cater well for vegetarians.

Tarsiers are often found close to the ground in forest trees so be prepared for low light if you want the best photos – no flash, though.
