Getting Lost in Virgin Island, Si Keling Island Keling island in some yachter call as Neptune island in Riau Islands, especially in regency Lingga. This island is so pure and no one stay there. This quotes would be excellent about my journey there, “What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do — especially in other people’s minds.  When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then.  People don’t have your past to hold against you.  No yesterdays on the road.” - William Least Heat Moon.

It’s so amazing, I have opportunity to get lost in that island. Even my skin is getting burn and more dark but I do not care about it. Today, Citra wants to tell you story about getting lost in virgin island, Sikeling Island or Pulau Mayat in local people said. Do you ready to read this article and get sensation to get lost in virgin island with the beautiful and amazing beach. I am so happy and enjoy my journey to get lost there.

I have to wake up early morning in that day because I will go there with some friends and the meeting point in Punggur jetty, Batam. So, I go there from Sri Bintan Pura Jetty to Batam. It needs 45 minutes by boat or ferry. I just wait my friends before buying ticket Batam to Lingga. One way ticket is 240,000 IDR but you should not stop in Lingga jetty. You should be asking a ticketing agency to make you stop to Cempah jetty



I do not remember how long to get to Cempah Jetty but as I remember Cempah jetty before Dabo jetty. So, better remind the staff ferry to make you stop in Cempah jetty. While in Cempah to get to Batu Berlubang village. You should find the traditional boat or local people said pompog. The price to return is 700,000 because from Cempah to Desa Batu Berlubang need an hour journey. From Desa Batu berlubang to Sikeling island just need 30 minutes. 

Desa Batu Berlubang have to pass the Sikeling island first. Sikeling island is small island but the view is so amazing. This island has different view between front and behind the island, especially about the style of beach. In front the waves sea is not to high and aggressive but in behind this island, you can get the aggressive waves and also winds so strong. So different but it would be great.


I really love to discover this island to get best sunset. This island is amazing even minim facility such as no connection phone, no resort or home stay, no food seller, no electric. This island just has small pier and platform. Even like that every February this island a lot yachts stop near this island because yachters love to get winds in this island to sailing their yachts. That is why in the yachters this island calls such as Neptune Regatta island.




Do you also want to get lost in this amazing island? Let’s get how to get there (Sikeling island).

© Fist remember, the ticket to get to Lingga every day is just one time from Batam to Lingga and the time table is morning time. So just make sure get the ticket on that date. Ask the staff, You want to stop in CEMPAH Jetty. The price for one way ticket is 240,000 IDR. (this price will be change depend on the year you visit).

© While in Cempah island or jetty find the owner ship or boat to rent or ask them to take you to sikeling island or Pulau Mayat. The return rents boat is 700,000 idr (the price is 2017 I know that). Make sure to tell the boat driver what’s time and date you have to get pick up. Because, no network in this island.

© To get to the local island that is call Desa Batu Berlubang from this island (Sikeling) that is need 30 minutes by boat.

© Bring your food and water because in this island no food and drink seller. So, make sure you should pack a lot of things you need to survive.
