Day 3: Entering West Nusa Tenggara; Moyo Island – Satonda Island
We’re finally entered West Nusa Tenggara area. When most people has the Gili Laba spot or Pink Beach as their favorit spot, I actually loved Moyo Island since it really has this enchanting tropical vibe. Fun fact, Moyo Island turns out to be the place where International public figures, like Lady Diana and Bill Gates spent their vacation. It is located in the north of Sumbawa.
The funny thing I just realized is that I haven’t took a bath since I’m on board this ship (more like, refusing taking one since we can only take a bath with salt water). Good news is that there is fresh water in Moyo Island!
So our goal in Moyo was simple: taking a bath (using swimwear of course!), sponsored by mother nature
By the time of our arrival, our boat couldn’t stop right at the Island’s border as the corals are very steep. So we needed to swim in order to get to the island, not forgetting to bring our bag of shampoos and soap.
Moyo Island was like a wild tropical jungle, rather it’s still not littered and a natural beauty. The place you can explore here is Mata Jito Waterfall. To go there, we need todo trekking through the forest. The trail to get there isn’t paved well yet, so be careful while walking as we will walk through several rocks or branches that may not be friendly if you’re wearing flip flops. Make sure you prepare to use either mountain sandals for a more comfortable trek if you don’t wanna risk your sandals.
