I guess, not many of you have visited this place?
Why I say this? It is because Turtle Island is not like other places which are famous as Bali's signature. When people mention about Bali, those places like Tanah Lot, Paddy Terrace and Kintamani Volcano will be appeared in your mind. Not the Turtle Island.
Luckily, I read about it on internet and asked to my tourist guide.
I wanted to touch turtle since I was a little kid. My family even brought me to Rantau Abang, Terengganu to see turtle, but you can see them only if you are lucky. I was not lucky then since the turtle did not come to the beach and it was 1990 if I'm not mistaken. Dad booked the chalet at the beach and we were waited for the turtle together. Such a sweet memories.
So, I had the opportunity again. I did not miss it this time, of course.
We took the boat from the mainland to the Turtle Island. I was very happy and anxious.
You can see many boats on your way to the island. Even weird fishing boat like the green one in the picture.
Our happy face on the boat.
You can see some activities like parasailing, jet ski and many more.
I forgot to mention, our boat was a glass-bottom boat. So, we could see underwater creature and corals.
...and there you go!!! We reached the island!
The python :)
...and some birds too :)
You must try the coconut. It was huge!
It is a must thing to do if you visit Bali. The people in the island were friendly.
It's 3:35am (Sunday) now and I got to go. I got wedding to attend later. I will write about the next place that I had visited later. I hope you enjoy the post :)
