UNAIR NEWS – For those of you who like to go to the beach, the moment at dusk is the right time to be immortalized. There are various tones of color, such as orange, brown, black, to purple. All fused in a beautiful evening sky towards night.
Actually, many places provide the beauty of “twilight silhouettes” in Indonesia, one of which is Gili-Noko Island. A small island located in the middle of Java Sea, precisely about 5 kilometers from Bawean Island.
Gili-Noko Island is two different islands. Gili Island is a human-inhabited island, while Noko Island is an uninhabited island. Both are close together, so-called Gili-Noko Island.
The island is unique. Namely, when the sea water recedes, the plains in the middle will begin to appear. It makes a bridge that connects the two island.
If you want to get the right atmosphere when enjoying the sunset, you can come at five in the afternoon because it is the right time to enjoy the evening on Gili-Noko Island. A collection of clouds with Bawean Island background will be visible at that time.
We can capture the moment with the camera or just enjoying the view with our eyes. Furthermore, we will get a breathtaking panorama and the twilight scenery of the sea located in the middle of Java Sea.
For travelers who are interested in going there, the access is quite cheap and easy. It can be reached by water or air transportation.
In addition, we can take a flight from Djuanda Airport to Bawean Airport. The ticket price is around 200 to 300 thousand.
If you take a boat, it’s even cheaper. From Gresik Port, we can take a ferry to the port in Sangkapura with tickets around 70 and 150 thousand.
After that, we can then take public transportation by paying around 5 thousand rupiah. Then, we crossed by fishing boat from Sidogentung Batu to Gili Noko Island, which is only 5 thousand rupiah.
With a small budget, we can enjoy the beauty of Gili Noko Island. We can spend our time at Gili-Noko Island Pier.
Some UNAIR students have been there. So, are you interested in visiting Gili Noko Island on this summer break holiday?
