    The water surrounding Saronde Island is famous for being clear and unpolluted by industrial waste, thus making it worth it for various marine activity such as swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling and water ski.

    Saronde is not only famous for its view. The people of Saronde Island also has a unique tradition. During certain periods, usually on Saronde Festival in July, they held a Ketinting (small speedboat) race, going around the Saronde Island.
    This boat race is one of the most anticipated moment by the people in Kwandang District. You could also interact with the people during this event.
