The lagoon is gorgeous, especially if you haven't been to a lagoon ever before. It's very cool to see how the lagoon fills up through a small hole in the rocks when the tide is rising. You can climb the cliffs to see the ocean. Be careful with the monkey, they are really nasty and will steal your food when... More

Behind pulau Sempu, you can find paradise on earth called Segoro Anakan. The white sands, the natural views and the reef are fabulous. It is surrounded by the rocks and you can climb over to see the great waves and the views beneath you. If you go to Malang, make sure that Segoro Aakan becomes your must visit place.

The laguna located inside the conservative forest. It takes 3-4 hours walking on real forest with no steps. No public toilet, store, mineral water provided. Effort payed off when you are arrived at the laguna, very beautiful and natural. you have to go here once in your lifetime!

Thank Siti U
