location & map
An Indonesian wildlife reserve since 1976, Moyo Island lies east of Bali in the West Sumbawa regency. Moyo is situated about 8° south of the equator. Amanwana looks out over Amanwana Bay, a marine reserve, and beyond to the Flores Sea. Medang Island in the north-west, the rugged mountains of Sumbawa in the south and Lombok’s volcanic Mount Rinjani – at 3,726 metres, the third-highest mountain in Indonesia – are visible from Moyo. The island all but plugs the narrow entrance to Saleh Bay, creating an inland sea ideal for cruising and island hopping.
Bali is the international gateway. It is one of the most accessible destinations in South-East Asia with daily flights from most major cities in Asia and Australia. Travellers from the United States or Europe tend to fly via Singapore or Hong Kong. There are also domestic flights from the surrounding islands and ferry connections.
Travira Air offers scheduled flights as well as private charters between Bali and Amanwana. The transfer on Travira Air’s floatplane is the most direct and Amanwana’s recommended mode of transfer. Helicopter transfers can also be arranged upon request. See transfer schedules for details
