April 2010.. Kapoposang National Marine Park, Spermonde archipelago, South Sulawesi.
may not be as well-known as other celebrated diving resorts, like Bunaken of North Sulawesi or Raja Ampat in Papua, but it is equally beautiful and offers an abundance of unexplored marine life.
Kapoposang is one of the largest of the Spermonde Islands, around 70 km northwest of Makassar, South Sulawesi. Kapoposang covers an area of around 50,000 hectares and is inhabited by around 100 families. Several other islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, lie near Kapoposang. The larger ones include Papandangan, Kondongbali, Suranti and Tambakulu.
The best time to visit Kapoposang is between April and November, when the seas are calm, the weather favorable, and the wind less fierce than in the other months. The trip takes two hours by speedboat; the ocean breezes help to cool your skin in the hot morning sun.

it is hoped the Kapoposang National Park, one of the many superb snorkeling and diving spots in Indonesia, will develop into a more popular tourist destination.
