Again, accompany a tall German guy ;) . we're going to Sempu island to enjoy the lagoon beach in the middle of the island.
We went on monday (busy day but we're still having fun) by 7 AM, driving for about 2,5 hours heading to the southern part of East Java. After we arrive on Sendang Biru bay, a friend had to ask permition first to the local chief and brought him our ID card.
Then we tried to find some fisherman and started bargain the price of the boat to cross into Sempu island (it's only separated 100 metres though) and we got the deal price 12$, of course we pay in rupiahs haha.. just wrote it on bucks nominal to make it easier for foreigner who read this blog :P
When we arrive on Sempu island, we still need to walk for 2 hours on muddy and sliipy road. Amongs the woods, wild birds chirpped, monkeys, wild pig, and maybe some tigers if you're lucky :D hehehe..
All of us couldn't afford to not get so sweaty.. we got all our shirts wet for sure hehe.. and our sunblock getting melted on our skin, euuyy... so disgusting
we found huge trees cutted our road and we tried to climbed it as if we're monkey. And broken little bamboo bridge which made us passed it by hung onto rocks. Be careful or you'll bleeding and then the tigers comes up :P
Huff, after lot of sweat and mud spa, we finally could see the 'Segara Anakan' lagoon just right on our eyes!
It's as good as Kho Phi Phi island in Thailand hehe.. :)
we climbed down the rock wall and just ran to the water!!
especially all girls with mud all over their body hehe.. ;)
It's a clear beach with good sea water tones. But unfortunately it has not much corals or even fishes. Only clear water n soo white sands. And behind those rocks wall, we could find straight the Pasific ocean. So don't get too near with the border, otherwise you'll get sucked cause the wave kinda big near there gulp.
We spent about 2-3 hours on the beach and have to go back sooner caus the boat only able to pick us before 3PM.
Nobody wahs their body there, cause we found no toilet haha..
so we just walked back on
muddy road right after we dry our clothes. The way back road seemed easier than we firstly came here haha.. but we're all kinda shocked cause we noticed a fast movement on woods near us. We thought it was tiger or something and we all just stay quiet. A friend of mine was ready with a wood on his hand, ready to hit that something if it attacked us. That's was a heart attack, after few minutes. It just went on and everything returned normal again.
Our boat already waited for us on the bay side. Right after we went on it, we found a great view. It was a wide pasific ocean!! only covered with some small islands. hm.. I think I could sailing straight to Australia then hehe.. :P
well, everybody (all mens for sure) wahsed their body on Sendag Biru bay..but the girls couldn't afford the toilet and chose to take the shower in my house..
and again.. we're all fell asleep on our car..
