However, don't expect tourist facilities and infrastructure on these two tiny islands, because both are still completely natural. In the center of the island, there are only sea pine trees and also a wooden gazebo that can be used for shelter.

Gili Noko Island

Noko Island is located not far from Gili Island, an island inhabited by some Bawean residents. To get to Noko Island, you can take a canoe (klotok) from the Floating Pier in Pamona Hamlet, Sidogedung Batu Village.

When you take a klotok to Noko Island, you can see coral reefs under the sea, small fish, and some starfish. After 15 minutes on the klotok, then you can enjoy the white sand of Noko Island which is about one square kilometer.

When you enter Noko Island, you will not be charged a cent of the ticket or free. You can directly bathe on the beach or take selfies at the best spots. In addition, you can also fish until the afternoon. After sunset, you can set up a tent to enjoy the atmosphere of the night and the stars from the middle of the sea.

Noko Selayar Island

Noko Selayar Island is actually not much different from Noko Gili Island. Both are equally uninfluenced and save so much beauty. Clean white sand and clear sea water seem to always be the prima donna of this island.

On this exotic island, you will also be pampered with stunning underwater decorations, beautiful sponges, and fish that swim freely under the sea. Access to Noko Selayar Island can be through the Leaf Village, to be precise from Beto Elong Beach.

When the sea water is receding, you can walk to Noko Selayar Island. But when the tide is high, you have to take a klotok like when you go to Noko Gili Island. Unlike Noko Gili Island, on Noko Selayar Island you can also wait for dusk to arrive because the sunset on this island is a shame to miss.
