ON AND BETWEEN THE ISLANDS
Pulo Nasi has motorcycle taxis, so called "RBT". They
wait for passengers in the villages of Rabo, Deudap and Kandang. At
odd hours they can be difficult to find in other villages. Pulo
Breuh has a few occasional motorcycle taxis, but they can be very
expensive. The second alternative is walking.
Pulo Nasi is small enough for that; however Pulo Breuh can be a bit
too big. A walk from Gugup to Meulingge can take five to seven
hours. The sceneries along the walk make the walk into an attraction
If you want to go between the islands, you can either ask around if
anyone is going, or charter by yourself.
