Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Airport - Bwanna Beach - Watu Molong

Arrival at the airport, picked up and welcomed! The first activity on the island will be to Watu Maladong, the beach where you can have a look at the enormous big rocks in the middle of the sea. It gives you slightly the feeling that you are in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. Because of the big rocks magically coming out of the water.


After this, we will continue our journey and we will explore Bwanna Beach. Before you arrive there, you have to drive on a sandy road which guides you through a massive field of high grass. The beach of Bwanna is a long clear colorful sandy beach under a majestic cliff looking towards the Indian Ocean. Whilst the beauty is unquestionable, the beach is still unknown by most tourist, it makes it very private and very clean.
