Amazing rock formation. You can spend hours here exploring the rocks and just watching the waves. Accessible by car and about a kilometer hike on a wooden bridge. Local guides are also present.

We took a bangka to Biri Island, which takes an hour. You only leave when enough people are on it. The motor engine is very noisy. On arrival, a motorbike took us to the tourist information office where we paid for a motorbike and guide,...More
