Among six resorts on Malenge Island, the beach of Sandy Bay is the longest and might be the most beautiful. If you want to stay there and come by the public boat from Ampana, get off the boat at Pulau Papan (Bajo Village, the second stop) not at Malenge Village, the first stop on the island. The Sandy Bay boat has never waited on Malenge Village, remember this info for avoiding inconvenience.
Since last week (second week of July 2018), the resort has always been full. If you arrive there and have the situation, check three other resorts within 300 meters after the Sandy Bay, If they are full too, which is likely, ask the Sandy Bay staff to take you to my bay--only 5-minute boat. Our simple guest hut (only one) is vacant most of the time. Inkong, the senior staff of Sandy, is a trusted person.More
