Helloindonesia.id – The Derawan Islands are a group of islands located in Berau Regency, East Kalimantan.
The Derawan Islands have 3 sub-districts, namely Derawan Island, Maratua, and Big Dipper, Berau. There are at least 4 famous main islands in the archipelago, namely Maratua Island, Derawan Island, Sangalaki Island and Kakaban Island with their own uniqueness. All of these islands can be visited by renting a speedboat from Derawan Island with a per-day rental calculation.
Located about three hours’ drive by sea from Berau Regency, East Kalimantan, the Derawan Islands have not been able to attract as many tourists as the islands of Bali or Lombok because of their relatively remote and remote location.
Visitors must be willing to travel long distances through three routes namely land, sea or river and air to reach the Derawan Islands.
Not only is the view of the beach extraordinarily beautiful, but the underwater beauty and diversity of marine life on the four islands is also a pity to miss.
It is recorded that more than 870 types of marine life living in this place such as giant turtles, stingrays, dugongs, dolphins, barracudas, stingless jellyfish and even Derawan sharks are a collection of fish that live in Derawan waters.
Snorkeling and diving activities are activities that are worth doing here considering that the sea in the Derawan Islands is very rich in the diversity of marine life. In addition, visitors can also swim in the very clear sea water and play with green turtles here.
