Some may find the full one day trip tourism which is a bit of a mad house from 10:30 to 15:30 a real culture shock after the quietness of other islands. The upside is that there are a few really nice little restauants, internet cafe and laundry. Nusa Cenigan well worth exploring.13.51,447.56.02.5MON 20.05600MON 20.05830

This is due to the reefs that protect it to the west and south. Snorkeling is good but not well protected. Transport on this island is by pony and cart and walks here are also good fun. Restaurants on all Gili's are excellent and a relaxing soiree on a fouton by the beach is simply a 'must do' experience. Gili Aer and Trawangan have passable surf breaks when the swell is above 2m to the south. An alternative anchorage is Medana Bay, to the east of here. Medana Bay has moorings, and also some floating jetties and pens. all facilities are available, and it is a 'local' fast boat trip to get back to Gili Air43.01,490.56.07TUE 21.05800TUE 21.051500

This anchorage provides safe anchorage and overnight respite . Snorkeling and water quality is poor.44.51,535.06.07.5FRI 24.05800FRI 24.051530

The water clarity is generally good and the locals very honest and friendly. There is a local fishing village where one can get essential staples, but not much more. The beach is certainly not of high standard, but monkeys are often seen here, making this anchorage one of my favourites. (Fugli lives here !) Room here for about 10 yachts max.

There is no village on this side of the island but sadly the beach is littered from local fishermen who camp here on occasion.

Secluded, visited only by the occassional fisherman, fish, snorkeling, monkeys and komodos on the beach, what more could you want ? Several great walks are to be had through honeycomb hills behind the anchorage. Care!!! Watch out for strong tides in these parts.15.71,784.46.02.5SUN 02.06800SUN 02.061030

Lots of wildlife on the beaches, big komodos, deer, monkeys, birds; the water is clearer and cooler due to deep water currents enriching this area. No habitation. Great snorkelling on a bommie in the middle of the channel just SW of the anchorage. Liveaboard dive charter boats visit regularly and they can show you where it is, although quite easy to spot.13.01,797.46.02MON 03.06800MON 03.061000

Whilst getting the dinghy ashore at Labuan Bajo is difficult at low tide due to a ridge of yukky muddy sand near the beach, high tides are OK for access. Any effort expended on the trip to shore is soon forgotten whilst lounging beside the pool or admiring the Komodo Islands from the topdeck over the rim of one's Chardonnay. Avoid the hassle and bustle of Labuan Bajo whilst accessing all it has to offer. Treat yourself to a day or two at the Lodge. Staff are terrific and very keen to promote cruisers recharging here. There are several other small restaurants nearby, just a walk away. We are planning some special events at this town, so keep it in your itinerary.27.51,824.96.04.5WED 05.06800WED 05.061230

Security is not an issue here. Great beach here accessed from inside the lagoon at all tides. The relatively exposed nature of this anchorage gives it a lower score and it is advisable to keep an eye on the weather from the N. In the dry season(SE winds) it is generally calm and protected. There are lots of good anchorages nearer to the City of Labuhan Bajo if you choose. Also just 10nm away is Sebayor Kecil which is worth a visit.40.51,865.46.06.75SAT 08.06800SAT 08.061445

Nothing to see on the charts and the actual cove runs N back into the headland, so it isn't seen until you are almost past it heading S that it becomes visible.

Teddy's Bar is definitely the focal point for yachties here and Teddy and his staff seek to cater for all yachtie needs from laundry,travel,phones,& fuel.
