53 miles from Sutera Harbour
Don’t miss these two jewel islands. There are many anchorages to choose from depending on conditions. We recommend between the two islands on sand in 6-7 metres opposite a very small islet undercut with caves.
Another nice anchorage is the eastern tip of the main island’s southern side, 6°42.22N, 116° 22.07E in 7-10 metres. Take care at both spots to avoid the scattered coral outcrops closer in.
The main island has a village and small school; the locals are friendly and welcoming and can assist with knowledge of the best diving and snorkelling areas. On the eastern shore of the smaller island in the channel are beautiful coral gardens where dugongs are said to dwell.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
