Sebesi Island, Lampung

3.8
#7 of 10 in Nature in Lampung
Sebesi is an Indonesian island in the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra, and part of the province of Lampung. It rises to a height of and lies about north of the Krakatoa Islands; it is the closest large island to Krakatoa, about the same area and height as the remmant of Rakata. Like Krakatoa, it too is volcanic, although there are no dated eruptions known. Unlike the Krakatoas, Sebesi has permanent streams and is inhabited.Sebesi was devastated during the 1883 volcanic eruption of Krakatoa. Official records give approximately 3,000 people killed, with 1,000 of these being 'non-residents'.By 1890, Sebesi was being re-cleared. It is believed that since it lies closer to Sumatra, it has served as a 'stepping stone' for much of the flora and fauna which was re-established at Krakatoa. By the 1920s, settlers had returned, and today Sebesi is virtually completely cultivated, with only a small area at the peak and some mangrove swamps still natural.

    The only one island that have people live in it. The traveller who want to visit Krakatoa stay here. There are some lodging. The one that I visit has some spacious room such as barrack with some beds and an toilet for each room. They also have many public bathroom behind. Such a backpacker housing type. This island only have electricity from 06.00 till 18.00. So you only can charge your gadget at night. The housing yard is wide and have some shady tree where you can sit and enjoy the beach in front of you while grille the fish. They also have some food stall where you can enjoy coconut water, coffee, tea, or indomie. Nb: This island has perfect spot of sunset!
