Anambas; Trenggiling Island and its unique cave

img_20160512_162540_hdrAfter learning about snorkeling on Biang Island, we continued our trip to Trenggiling Island. Trenggiling in English means a pangolin. I dont know why they call the Island with Trenggiling. May be, there are a lot of Pangolins there or other reasons.  But that island looks very beauty. We did not know why Ester lay off our ship in the area of coral and rocks towering.

terenggiling-caveWhen we got off the ship we realized that there is a cave that is unique in the crevice between the rocks.

We tried to look outside the cave, Eyster and her friends forbid us to get closer to the cave area. Not far from where we approached the cave, the smell of pee or bat droppings. According to our estimates, there are a lot of bats that inhabit the cave. After we took some pictures there. Earlier, I asked if allowed to take pictures near the cave. They said it may take pictures but should not be too close or go into the cave. Perhaps, besides no one has ever entered the cave may also be dangerous if we were trying to get in.

Then I told them that I would also like snorkeling and seen what was in that  sea. Bang Farizan help me to snorkel. Wow scenery in the water is very beautiful. There is a kind of trough in the water, there are some pretty big fish that was swimming back and forth, as well as beautiful coral reefs.

Then I told my friend, Mba Rina and Mr. Aril, to tried snorkeling with me to see what I had seen. Mba Rina said if she lacked the courage snorkel there because the odds are pretty deep. Another case with Mr. Aril interested in joining me to see the contents in the sea. Then he tried snorkeling and seemed he also saw the beauty of it. Because we were enjoying the snorkeling activity, Mba Rina then join with us. She seems to have started daring snorkeling. We started to enjoy snorkeling lessons we had learned.

Then, Eyster invited us to continue our journey, for had lunch. We climbed back the boat and sailed back. Not so long, we stopped at a beautiful beach with white sand, clear water, and a little colored toska sea water. Besides  that, there are a lot of coconut trees and others trees and plants. They said the name of the beach is the same as the name of the island, Trenggiling Beach.

Eyster and her friends prepared our lunch. while others took many pictures and some of them also swam at the beach. She called us to lunch and we ate lunches brought from Tarempa City. Our lunch menu was Nasi Padang and side dishes. It was nice when we had lunch while enjoying the beautiful view of the beach and the sea.
