Where I stayed
What I did
We're done with mangrove and we walk out to buy food supply at Ramayana which close to Mangrove. And after that, we take an angkot (public transport) to get back to the hotel and prepare ourselves to Derawan Island at 12.30. Checked out from the hotel and decided to take an angkot to meeting point Tengkayu 1 jetty
Catch the destination and meet team, we have briefing from GPS adventure team from mandatory to wear life jacket while snorkeling, cottage name and room (Reza no.06), up to time and venue to have dinner and breakfast. Right at 13.00 we walk to the boat and organize our backpacks then the boat ready to get a lot of bumpy, lol. It takes approximately 3 hours trip to Derawan Island and I am enjoying the waves.
We are here at Derawan island. This island is still beautiful as I've seen in last 2009. Nothing to do in this afty. We just need to take a shower and have dinner at 18.00. I, Widya, Neri and Ratih go to BMI cottage to enjoy evening sightseeing and take some pictures. I love this island in a day and night, really !!!
