    For Bahari Express ticket,you should reserve and pay better 1 month before your departure.


    And if you are flexibleenough with your itenerary, we would like to advise you not to comeon weekend.
    Food:
    Everyone should understandthat there is only one good reataurant with western food (Amore) inthis island, at the moment our friend Pa Giarto build his newrestaurant and we hope it will be open soon in July 2012. Beside thatyou can find delicious local food (sreet food) around football field.
    Drinks:
    There are enough nonalcoholical drinks, you can buy in Warung. And for alcoholicaldrinks, you can only find beer (Bintang and Anker) also in warung. Nococktails here.
    Activities:
    If you are looking forparty holiday, then definetly you come to the wrong island. No clubs,and the best thing to spend the night here is in Football field,where you can buy food and drinks while sitting on the ground andwatching people and ofcourse the stars.


    The most common activitiesofcourse; snorkling, fishing, island hopping, swimming with thesharks, sun bathing, islad touring with motorcycle, and our favoriteis watching the beautiful sceneray from our secret place.
    Diving:
    No profesional dive here.Only fun diving or discovery diving. There are some good spots (wreckand coral), you can take local guide from village to show you thespots, but they are just local diver and they don't have profesionallicence. For dive equipment, local guide and boat should rentseparately, which will cost you a lot if you are not in group.
    Weather:
    Best time to come fromApril to October
    IMPORTANT:
    Due to weather problem theboat schedule could change without prior notice.

    The prices for the Bahari Express. When did you get those? I was there recently and paid a cheaper amount. Also, why do you advise to book one month in advance for the Bahari Express?
