Kenawa Island

Kenawa Island

Quiet, calm and peaceful. That was my first impression, once set foot on the island Kenawa. There was no birds singing, sound waves are also not great. Only the occasional sound of small ripples on the beach. As far as the eye could see, there was only a stretch of grassland, a number of blank bale (gazebo), and a small hill at the end of the island. It’s really a perfect place to “retreat” to calm down.

Sumbawa - Kenawa (2)

Kenawa island located in the northwest of the island of Sumbawa, precisely in the Alas Strait, not far from the Poto Tano harbor, West Sumbawa, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). To reach the island Kenawa, my friend and i rent a fishing boat from the village of Poto Tano, takes about 15 minutes.

Kenawa island has stunning natural scenery. The combination of natural hills, grasslands (savanna), a stretch of white sandy beaches and ocean water blue-green shades, made of natural Kenawa island is so beautiful and impressive. A 13.8 hectares is uninhabited island and has not been visited by many tourists, so it was very quiet. When we visited there, there is no other visitors besides us. So we are free to do anything according to our will. It’s really like a private island.
