Lovina to Menjangan Island, North Bali
Sun 25 Sep 2016 08:25
We decided to take Gaviota and sail the 30 miles to the farthest North West point of Bali – home to the Taman Nasional Bali Barat National Park (the last Bali tiger was shot here in 1937!). We anchored off Menjangan (Deer) Island with a stunning view of the volcanoes on Java. Menjangan is famous for it’s clear water, diving and snorkelling and of course for it’s wild deer. The clarity of the water did not disappoint and we did a great ‘drift snorkle’ tied onto the dinghy which shot us over the reef at speed just managing to climb back into the dinghy before it headed to Java with us attached. The fish life was amazing and spotting the Javanese deer on the island definitely made the trip worthwhile.
