    Merak Belantung Beach

    by donatbollonk Written Aug 18, 2013

    Merak Belantung is located in Kalianda, the capital of South Lampung district. it is about 35-40 KM from Tanjung Karang (the capital of Lampung province). it is also well known as EMBE beach; Em initiliazes M and Be initiliazes B, that is the acronym of Merak Belantung. I notice this beach is clean, that is different from other beaches in Lampung. My Son likes this much because he can play around on smooth sand.

    Please be warned the wave might be harmful if you can not swim. Keep an eye on the kids, the waves frequently reaches the sand and might pull them. This beach also has volley beach and soocer beach yards, which is a plus point for EMBE. I recommend this beach for family vacation. the entrance ticket costs IDR 15.000 (about 1,5 USD).

    unfortunately the small hut costs too much. it is expensive considering it is just a place to sit and I have to pay IDR 25.000 per hour.

    Useful Tips:
    Prepare some small cash ( IDR 1.000 or IDR 2.000), the singing beggar might come to you.
    if you need shower after swimming, you need to pay another IDR 5.000

    An Active Volcano-Krakatau Mount

    by meiyergani Updated Apr 19, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mount Krakatau was erupted in 1883, but years by years a Little Krakatau was appear at the Sea Surface in the year or 1927 up to now stick high and become beautiful panorama of an active volcano. To reach anak Krakatau or also known as Rakata Kecil, sailing from a small port called CANTI is more convenient compare if someone take it away from Banten Province. From Canti, it will take 2 hours to Sebuku island, a stop over for an accomodation. Then from Sebuku island one can go to Little Krakatau and it surrounding in about 2 more hours. It would be better if the trip take on April to October, where the Sea is Calm and the wind is not strong

    From Jakarta by bus to Merak SeaPort,, then by Ferry crossing Sunda Straits to Bakau Heni SeaPort, then take an ANGKOT(share taxi) to a small town Kalianda, continue by an Angkot or motorcycle Ojek to Canti SeaPort and by a motorized boat to Sebesi island, from here take a boat to the island of Krakatau

    Bukit Barisan National Park

    by jungles Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Bukit Barisan is a large but little-known national park in southern Sumatra which does not receive many visitors and thus is not really set up for tourism. To enter the park you first have to get a permit from a small town called Kota Agung. Try not to arrive on a Friday afternoon or evening like we did. By the time we got there the office was closed for the weeked, so we ended up hanging around in Kota Agung for a couple of days with not much to do. It's a fishing village, so the people are used to getting up early, and they woke us up at 6:40am to bring us fried rice for breakfast. That was probably the most exciting thing that happened in Kota Agung, other than seeing a dead rat washed up on the beach.

    Everyone seemed a bit confused by our presence, as they don't normally receive visitors to the park. Eventually we were able to find someone who spoke English and to communicate what we wanted, and we hired a park ranger named Tori to be our guide in the jungle. The rangers usually spend their time working to conserve the park and to keep out poachers, but Tori was happy to play the role of guide for a change. Bukit Barisan is home to many different species of widlife, and is one of the few places that harbours rhinos, tigers, and elephants in the same area. All we saw though were some monkeys high up in the trees, as well as a few hornbills, which are really big birds.

    Dancing Dolphins

    by apple-melati Written Aug 27, 2009

    To watch the dolphins at the open water, we need to sail for about 30 minutes by Jukung from Kelapa island. We left Kelapa island at around 7pm, each Jukung was loaded by maximum 4 persons. The weather was a bit cloudy, the sun's hiding behind cloud, fortunately there're not big waves so our jukung could flow smoothly, giving me a little comfort since I cannot swim and I wasn't wearing a life jacket. After 30 minutes sailing, when I was just about to ask the Jukung man where's the dolphins: not far from our Jukung, we saw a group of dolphins swimming fast and then disappeared. And wow the next five minutes we were histerical watching many dolphins around our boat swimming aroung and jumping out of the water. Soon, I forgot how I worried about being in the open water without a life jacket. So amazing to see these cute dolphins in their habitat. When the sun's going up and the heat of the sun started burning our skin, we're heading back to Kelapa island. Such an unforgetable experience watching the dolphins playing around in the open ocean.

    Blue StarFish

    by apple-melati Updated Aug 27, 2009

    Starfish is one of my favorite sea creatures, sometimes I wish I could take them home but I know that they should stay in their habitat where they belong. I didnt see many star fish here in Kiluan Bay but there're some very gorgeous blue starfishes. They tried to hide under the dead coral while I touched them with my hand. It's fun watching them move slowly in between the corals.

    Bandar Lampung Night view from Bukit Randu

    by Imperfect_V Written Feb 21, 2009

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a star hotel name Bukit Randu. Located at the hills, so private, and expensive also (ahahaha...) From here, you may enjoy night view of the city. The view of Bandar Lampung city light is very beautiful. You can spend a lot of time here, just viewing a sparking light over the city. Nice!

    way kambas national park

    by ukirsari Written Jan 12, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    as long as i know, way kambas national park is famous for elephant attractions. such as football and circus. to be honest, i feel so sad since it's something not really nice for those beautiful creatures.
    but whenever we visit this place after back from way kanan national park, we find something different. we hear that circus and football are not the main attraction and purpose [we both know .. many indonesians like these :(]. elephants can be trained to help the foresters and farmers from wild elephants attacks and fire. that's great. and the unforgetable moment, in our visit we can cuddle up and playing with jo, a 1 month old baby elephant. he's so naughty but sweet!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    visit sumatran rhino sanctuary [srs] was something great for us. especially me, who already dream about a beautiful sumatran rhino called rosa since long time ago.
    she's a very friendly, who like to mingle with locals [her previous habitat was bukit barisan selatan national park but sometimes going out to villages nearby] and eat candy and several kind of children's snacks :)
    now rosa is under treatment to be wild again in srs. hoping she'll be okay. we already heard her voice whenever asking to get some fruits from the keeper! she's so lovely!!!
