Only has one resort on the island, but it plays into the exclusivity that enables you to truly enjoy your time in Moyo Island.
Moyo Island, at the mouth of Saleh Bay, has a nature reserve with wild oxen, deer, wild boars, and a great variety of bird species.
A few kilometers of the north coast of Sumbawa, the national park island of Moyo Island is probably the most rewarding destination in Sumbawa, surrounded by beautiful coral reefs and home to wild pig, monitor lizards, 21 species of bat, huge herds of native deer and hordes of crab-eating macaques.
There are basic private rooms at the PHPA post at Tanjung Pasir on the south coast, where most boats from the mainland arrive.
Renting a fishing boat from Tanjung Pasir and going fifteen minutes east to Stama reefs is very rewarding, with lots of sharks and turtles.
Visits are best made during the dry season from June through August.
How to Get There
To get to Moyo, take a bemo from beside Seketang Market in Sumbawa Besar to Air Bari, a small port settlement to the northeast. From Air Bari, you can charter a boat to Moyo.
