Overnight from Gili Trawangan to arrive at Moyo Island at sunrise.
Ocassional periods of good sailing through the night, when the wind not shadowed by the Ranjani Range of Lombok. Rough going at times, guests mostly unhappy and can't sleep because their beds were moving!!!
Moyo Is is home of the Amanwana Tent Resort, some rich and famous guest arrived by seaplane while we were at anchor. Guests went ashore and received comprehensive tour of the resort, photographed themselves inside the tents etc. Moyo Is very lush jungle, we anchored close in off a small village, very deep right up to the reef making finding suitable anchoring depth and distance off difficult. Not great protection form most winds and swells, so overall night a great anchorage. Snorkelling was fairly ordinary according to our guests.
Depart late afternoon for another overnight to the Komodo region.
