About
Pulau Koaba, which is also known as Kalong Island (Fruit Bat Island), is a low-lying circular island measuring 500 metres across and appearing to comprise a core of taller trees surrounded by dense mangrove. At dusk, the sight of thousands of bats leaving their roost and heading for their feeding grounds is a magnificent spectacle.

just need a few minutes from Rinca Island.
waiting the sunset from the boat, it feels surreal. After amazing sunset, hundred or thousand bats flying away from the mangrove island. One of the best watching sunset experience ever.

One of the more surreal things that I have done. Just watching all of the bats leave their cave from the mangroves is amazing to watch. A must-see.

When the sky turned orange at sunset hundreds and thousands of bats started coming out of the forest. The view was just magical and it was for around 15-20 minutes these bats flew over the boats to the other side.
