Lampung, my first destination to Sumatera. Yes I was born in Pekanbaru, visited Medan, Padang, Batam, but I never traveled ala backpacker to Sumatera. That’s why I felt so excited when I stepped on the ground ! I followed tour packacge, it costs 350k started from Merak. So from Cikarang, I used bus to Merak 28k, then from Merak using ferry to Bakaheuni. They rent angkot taking us from Bakaheuni to Pelabuhan Canti.
Then we used boat to explore that area. Approximately, I took almost 8 hours from Cikarang to Pelabuhan Canti. Cikarang-Merak 4 hours (bus stops in some places), Merak-Bakaheuni 2 hours, Bakaheuni-Canti 2 hours
Saturday, 6 a.m.
Our first destination was Sebuku Kecil Island. From Pelabuhan Canti took about 1 hour. It was small island, where the sands are mixed with the death coral. The water is very blue and it’s nice to spend time there.
After about an hour taking pictures, we continued to the next island, Sebesi. This was where we stayed and took rest. We stayed in the people’s house. Same as most islands, the electricity was off in the day. It was comfortable enough, the people were friendly, but the problem is HOT ! One night, I woke up from my sleep because it’s too hot. But I managed to sleep again though because I’m so tired hehe.
Still on Friday, about 3 p.m. we went to Umang Island. I was a beautiful beach ! White sands with some rocks, I felt this beach is different from the other. Let’s see the pics
