  Indonesia: Weda [Halmahera] + Bangka [Sulawesi] - March 2013

Nature, calm and pleasure ... In North Sulawesi, Indonesia, I headed for a dream island. His name: Bangka.

Halmahera Sulawesi

March 25, 2013. Here I am at step 2 of this little trip to the Indonesian archipelago.

I take off from Ternate, nearHalmaherain the Moluccas, for Manado, North Sulawesi, with Lion Air. Flight of 50 minutes, without history.

I rediscover the beauty of North Sulawesi seen from the sky. And I'm stamping with impatience.

I contacted the Coral Eye by e-mail before my departure, I am expected at the airport of Manado. Two young women, Carla and Perla, are watching me behind the fence with a small sign in my name.

The presentations made, we pile up in the car, with the races. I know it still takes about an hour to reach Pantai Surabaya, the black sand beach on the northern tip just opposite Bangka Island, where the boat is waiting for us.

After that, there are only forty minutes left. Calm sea and big sun. It looks good.

My heart beats hard. I scan the horizon. I look forward to seeing the island again.

MY island for a few days ... 😎

A beach, a pontoon, the coral

In the end, happiness is about few things ... 😉 An island. A beach. A pontoon above the coral and the soft murmur of the surf.

Ah, Bangka Island! I already had let go, on this island, three years ago. I am determined to reoffend.

I give you below my mini 360 ° made to the iPhone, with the nice app Dermandar. I missed a little the connections of the horizon, but it's nice anyway (click on it to rotate it as you want and choose preferably the definition 1024 bottom right of the frame):

A picture is worth a thousand words ... Here are some more photos, by way of mouthing.
