Sempu Island, Malang

4.3
#1 of 8 in Wildlife in Malang
Take a boat to secluded Sempu Island to trek through rolling hills and verdant jungle, filled with little monkeys and other wildlife. In the middle of the island, discover a hidden lagoon with white beaches. From the top of the island's craggy cliffs, enjoy sweeping views of the southern coast of East Java. The island is a protected national park, so it's a good idea to visit with a guide who can lead you around its various areas. Wear sturdy shoes and bring your own food and water, but be sure not to leave any litter on the island. Camping remains the only option for visitors interested in staying longer than a single day. A visit to Sempu Island represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Malang trip itinerary builder app to plot your vacation.

  • beautiful island. good for camping with your friend and family. but the cleanliness is the most important responsibility
  • Hidden paradise. But actually sempu island is one of conservation area. You need permit from rangers before and after finished the trip. It is important to bring back your garbage. Sempu has a sea lake, namely segara anak. It is like in the movie "lost in the jungle" because there is no village on that island
  • Better come on june-september to avoid rainy season. My experience on New Year's Eve, we were exposed to the rain without shelter. Bring a tent, eating and drinking supplies, are good ideas cause you’re gonna have fun right there... Happy New Year 2018 everybody!!!
  • This is a very wonderful island. This island surround by hills, and there is a hole through that hill which allow the sea water to come inside and make a small lake. U can do swim and snorkling. But if u want to go there, u must go with good preparation. On my last visit, no shops, no resto. Make sure that u have enough food during your stay. To reach, you need to go to malang city first. Then its better to rent a car, coz will be complicated if u go by public transportation. Then go to sendang biru. And cross the sea with traditional ship to Sempu island. Sendang biru is a small strait, but the water so blue. Its remind me, that its must be very deep. After that, u need to walk around 2 hours to the lake. If u bring alots of things, like tents and foods, some villager will help you carry on, but spend some money for them please.. ^_^ You can do camping over there, with one note.. If u are not familiar with this place better ask one of the villager to stay for guiding and helping u in some special case.
  • Looking for Adventurous thingy, definitely this place. Went camping to this kind of isolated place with my friends and it was amazing! You have to walk at least 2 hours straight to the camp side. 3 hours of driving from Malang City.
