Olele Beach is the gateway to Olele Marine Park with a very beautiful marine nature. World divers have proven that some of the marine biota found in the Olele Marine Park are not found in other waters in the world. The Olele Marine Park has a lot of beauty, including Goa Jin with ornamental fish, marine life, healthy, dense and beautiful coral reefs, giant sponges and also several types of fish that are rare and only found in the waters of Tomini Bay. The Olele Marine Park, which has become a tourist icon in Gorontalo Province, is located on the south coast. If you visit Gorontalo, it's not complete if you don't visit this location.

You need to know, in this marine park there are endemic coral sponges that cannot be found in any waters. Its existence is sought after by divers from abroad. Its uniqueness is in the coral motif which resembles a painting by the famous artist from Spain, Salvador Dali. The next spot is Coral Pole (coral pillar), Beehive (beehive-shaped sponge), and Traffic Jam. The underwater beauty in the latter area is truly amazing, divers who see it will be stunned and stop to enjoy it longer, so it is likened to a "congestion" or traffic jam there.
