East Madura / Giligenteng Island, Indonesia
To the south of Madura lies a small island, Giligenteng, a community of four peaceful little fishing villages, where everybody knows each other. The village of Bringsang consists of one small street, a mosque and a few local shops. There are no tourist attractions but it is an authentic fishing village and will give you an insight into the everyday life of this little community. The atmosphere is one of quiet content and the people are remarkably hospitable and friendly, saying hello and waving greetings as they go about their business. The beach here is really beautiful with clear water and pristine white sand.
Lovina Beach - Bali, Indonesia
North of Bali, the Lovina tourist area stretches over 12 km and consists of a string of coastal villages: Kaliasem, Kalibukbuk, Anturan, Tukad Mungga, collectively know as Lovina. Lovina’s black sandy beaches are quite lovely, the sea is very calm here and safe for swimming. The atmosphere on the beach is one of laid-back tranquillity with colourfully decorated traditional outriggers called perahu dotted along the shoreline.
Senggigi beach - Lombok, Indonesia
Sengiggi is Lombok's traditional tourist resort. A large bay forms the centre of the resort and it is one of the busier places on the island of Lombok. The main street comes alive at night and there are many restaurants to dine in as well as plenty of bars for live music and nightclubs to dance in. However one of the most amazing sights on the island can be viewed from Sengiggi Beach, the spectacular sunset. The bright orange sun sinks into the ocean with Bali's Mt. Agung volcano silhouetted on the horizon.
Gili Sudak - Lombok, Indonesia
This is the perfect island getaway, a small “resort” with fine white sand, coral reefs and limpid turquoise waters teeming with marine life including colourful tropical fish and starfish. The island has facilities and there is shade. From here the ship’s zodiac can take you to “Gili Kadiz”, a great snorkelling site.
