The coral reefs of Bunaken Island is one of the attractions of the dive tourism, which has a diversity of marine life and the uniqueness of the objects for divers. To maintain its sustainability, it is necessary to study alternative management strategies of the reefs.

Alternative management strategies were analyzed using SWOT, while collecting data was carried out through field surveys using a questionnaire for visitors, communities, and stakeholder or industry-related tourism. Results of the study recommended that an alternative strategy for the management of Bunaken Island attractions should include: 1) increasing the active participation and involvement of local communities in the management of marine tourism destinations; 2) address the problem of garbage and cleanliness of the area; and 3) optimize the promotion of Bunaken Island adequately as the best maritime destination in the world.
