How to get here from Padanbai, Bali See Bangsal

The second island between G. Air and G. Trawangan. The most quiet island and probably the water is cleanest.
Electricity is available 24 hours but very unstable. The water system has not been installed to this island therefore most of cheap hotels use light salty water and only expensive hotels buy pure water from the main land but most

The boats from Lombok arrive at the E coast of the island. The accommodation is spread m ainly to S(left as you land) and some to N
