I AM HARD TO PLEASE! … This is a seemingly highly attractive island for Diving Backpackers. But the noise from Discos and Karaoke systems travels SO well over water. Plus, I thought the last Island was cursed with water-taxis … multiply the problem by 100 times and you come close to the traffic here!

I moved across the Bay after one chaotic night and discovered a reasonably quiet spot. Clear water and calm from any breeze coming from the East … a westerly would be another story. I can’t recommend these islands to senior cruisers … but, backpackers would have a ball!

Two nights here was enough for me and I was on my way back to Terengganu, via an over night stay at the southern end of Radang Island … and a return to Heritage Marina … to prepare for the crossing of the South China Sea.
