It was so awesome. Me with other 15 friend from Jakarta were here on last Friday 11 October 2013. It spent 12 hours by Damri bus (it cost Rp 150k to Bandar Lampung include Ferry), 3 hours from Gambir to Merak, 3 hours across the sea from Merak to Bakaheuni, 2 hours from Bakaheuni to Bandar lampung. Arrived Bandar Lampung we changed transportation using rent car (it cost Rp 400k/car) and spent 6 hours to Teluk Kiluan. But it was not arrived yet until we changed transportation again using Jukung (local boat made by whole wood from tree and 2 piece of bamboo) to the Pondok Anak Abah camp site. Finally we arrived there at 3 pm.
After had lunch, guide asked us to go to Kelapa Island, it only takes 10 minutes, we swam and took pictures of the beautiful scenery there. If it was not because the weather, this place surely heaven. We came there at rainy season, so it was not good enough to see clear sky or sunset, also the high tide brought all the garbage to the beach. So bad.
If you want to look for entertainment, this place is not for people with that purpose. It is a bay with camp site, not 5 stars hotel. Do not expect the hospitality but the food was sooooooo great. They do not have the karaoke room and this place has no signal also, both for mobile phone or internet. But if you kind of limited budget traveler with a backpack who looking for a peace and adventure. Yes you are on the right path.
I woke up at 8 am, i was too late too woke up, but my eyes could not open because of the beautiful sound of the wave accompanied me to dream. A guide woke me up and asked us to haunt the great sightseeing of dancing dolphin. Before breakfast we haunted the dancing dolphin, eventho they were hard to find. But it paid off because we saw lot of dolphin jumping and dancing in a pair or group. Awesome.
At 11 am we went to laguna, WOW we had to hike to get there, sadly i was just wear flip flop, not the proper one to hike. Hike the mountain and down the hill through coral rock just with flip-flop and sometime naked feet just because it so slippery, it was not wise. But again and again it paid off with the relaxing lagoon, it felt like i was the only person who owned that lagoon.
Bad news was, we had to walk the coral, hiked and down the hill to reach the first place.
At 2 pm we changed place to Pasir Hitam, that was an awesome moment, imagine you take a motor trail to climb rapid mount, yes i did that. It was so scary yet exciteful until we found the beach was not good, too many garbage there.
Actually we had to go home, but i woke up early just for swam around the beach i stayed overnight. So relaxing. So beautiful.
The cost we spent was around Rp 971k but it totally paid off, beyond paid off if we were not came there in rainy season.
