The smallest Island perhaps
Nov 2019 • Family
Timang island is accessible from the bridge and the gondola. It's completely rocky but offers many scenic spots for photos. The island is split into two parts for gondola and bridge access passengers. If you use gondola, you can get access to lower levels of the island.

There are no amenities on the island. No toilet. They have got drinking water only. Also, it's windy and very dangerous. Definitely not suitable for infants and young children.

Plan to spend 30 minutes.

I am Yog Efendi, a Traveler from Yogyakarta.This is the island of rock with a lobster farm nearby. You need a gondola to reach this island. If you afraid, you can use the bridge.

Take all the best angles for your pictures and don't skip the sunset here coz so pretty. My colleagues from Jakarta Ms. Trinity Traveler and Ms. Zara Amelia so happy here.

Very recommended!

It is a very beautiful spot

worth it for travelling to know the nature... the ride is a little bit expensive... but it is a good experience. and of course, with the help of humans to roll you on the other side...I think it is worth it.

If you don't like pictures then you won't enjoy. Guides know everyway to take a photo. The thrill is at crossing the hanging bridge. Good place to scare those who are afraid of heights.

Tourist trap
Jun 2019
Timang Beach only has one activity, which is to go across to the Little Rock opposite through cable or by the bridge. You have to return by the same way you came from so you can’t experience both unless you pay twice. There’s nothing on the island across other than a few photo spots. A tourist trap but a good one nonetheless.

Gondola Ride at Timang!
Aug 2018 • Friends
Beautiful scenery at Timang but it wasn't the view that amazes me but the people that is operating the gondola service from the mainland to the little island. They have to endure the hot sun and strong wind to control the gondola and the strength required to pull the gondola across. Kudos to them!

Another thing that I would love to highlight was the motorbike ride to Timang, it was one hell of a ride through bumpy and stony terrain, up and down for 3 km. That sure rattled my old bones. :p

The rider has to be very experienced to maneuver the terrain as it could get rather dangerous at times especially going downhill. Those with the adventurous streak, should try that out otherwise could always get there by jeep, which would definitely be a much smoother ride but then, what's the fun in that right? :D

Stunning view
Aug 2018 • Friends
Enjoy the view of this place. You got two choice to go to the island, by gondola or by a small bridge. After that, have a taste of local lobster cuisine. Delicious.

Lifting up my adrenaline by riding the gondola to reach Panjang Island
Apr 2018 • Solo
You need to try this gondola ride unique experience on Timang beach. Made entirely from wood and ropes the gondola ride at Timang beach is entire hand operated with the help of a clever pulley system which connects the mainland to a smaller rocky island some 20 meters offshore called Watu Panjang which is also home to thousands of lobsters. The gondola was originally set up for this purpose, to ferry the local fisherman to access the lobster on Watu Panjang. Today however, it is a thrilling adrenaline inducing experience for travelers and locals alike.

While safety was a concern to us in the beginning, the entire team of locals operating the ride seemed professional and you get a reassurance that it is indeed safe once you see the operations on the ground.

If you are however, not keen on the gondola, the locals have built a new bridge to cross over to the same island.
