you like sea kayaking. Paddling amongst the palm tree islands is
amazing enough. Just roll off the canoe when you want to cool down,
to swim, or to snorkel. Camping on deserted islands and drinking
fresh coconuts. In Pulau Banyak you can also paddle along bizarre
rock formations and up small rivers into the jungle. There are even
a few waves ideal to do some kayak surfing.
Kayaks are available for half day or one day rental if you prefer
going alone. It is however recommended to take a tour with a guide
showing you the nice places, fixing camp and food. Several
alternatives are available, both in Balai and in Haloban. There are
tours for the absolute beginners, experienced paddlers and for the
fanatic long distance kayaker. Ask to see the tour menus. Rental is
app. Rp. 150.000 per day. A tour is app. 300-350.000 per day, incl.
