So, our last island to be visited in Derawan Archipelago that time was Pulau Gusung (Gusung Island) or Pulau Gosong (Burnt Island). On our way, the boat driver asked us not to put our hope to high for spending longer time at Gusung Island because it was highly influenced by the sea tidal. Our driver worried it was already high tide. That worrisome, it also made me worry. Ehm. In about one hour later, the worrisome gradually washed away as we saw something like a long white line between the bright blue sky and the aquamarine sea. We were quite sure it was Gusung Island. And yes, it was.
Needless to say more, the pictures below might tell it all how great it felt, to be on the small island which was far from the crowd and your common world. The island with coarse sands’ grain, which the surrounding water was clear and we could enjoy snorkeling close to that tiny island’s line.
Have you ever been to Gusung Island? What do you think about it? Or if you haven’t, feel like being there?
