the warmth of a friendship ... Kiluan Island, Lampung

It was June 2013, on a summer day. I did backpacking with my travelmates to soothe myself from a crowded city ... J-town ...

At the first time, actually we were not going to Lampung but we wanna go to Karimunjawa. But, it was too far. So, we decided to go to Lampung - Teluk Kiluan for three days.
We departed on Wednesday from Gambir by bus to proceed to Merak - Bakauheni. It was a bit bumpy in the sea, but it we were okay ... since bad wheather is a part of experience during travelling.

On next morning, it was Thursday. We arrived at 7 o'clock in the bus station in Bandar Lampung. Our friend who lives there already wait for us. Then, we drove about 5 hours to go to Teluk Kiluan.
And here we were ...

small island surrounded by beach


While there ...
We could enjoy the beach, walked around the island (you could find a lagoon if you want it), and in the early morning .. just ask to the local people to let you had a dolphins tour. It was great experience.

  1. Dear hobotraveler...

    I always dream to go to this place, but the time won't compromised.

    How many hours did spend on trip from JKT - Bandar Lampung - Kiluan?
    Is it enough if I explore Kiluan just on weekend (only 3 days)?

    Thanks by the way for stopping by in Makan Angin blog...

    1. hey Makan Angin ...
      nice to know you ... thank you for visiting my blog as well.

      Actually, It took almost 13 hours from Jakarta to Kiluan (Jkt - Merak 3 hours in a road, Merak - Bakauheni 4hours (include waiting time), Bakauheni - Lampung an hour, Lampung to Kiluan 5 hours.

      It was enough have 3D/2N during the vacation ... if you need more information let me know.
