An empty island located south from east java.

Sempu Island is technically a natural conservation area, 60 km from malang, east java with no population except the wildlife. It’s only a 5 minutes boat trip from a fisherman’s village called sendang biru. the boat will stop at teluk semut (ant’s bay) in sempu island.

My destination at sempu island is a lagoon located inside the island called segara anakan. from teluk semut we have to walk about 2 hours to reach segara anakan in normal condition. unlucky for me, the rain pour hard the night before i came. so the track is slippery and muddy and we need about 3 hours to reach segara anakan.

But it’s all worth it. I was welcomed by a beautiful white beach with calm clear water with high rock on the other side. As if it is my own swimming pool. The first instinct after a muddy walk is to dive in to the water. There’s water splashing inside from the ocean through a hole from the rock. It’s getting dark, I look above and after years living in a big city I realize it’s been a while since I a clear starry night sky.

I lie down on the beach. Looking at the sky hearing the ocean waves splashing the island’s rocks then fell asleep. the next day I climb the rock on the side of the island. on top you can sit and enjoy the view of the Indian ocean. hope one day you’ll be here, trust me, in sempu you’ll realize how small you are in this world.
