Located only 10 km (6.2 miles) west of Bengkulu city, this small island offers blue waters, white beaches, coral reef, and the feel of a remote getaway that you will not want to miss. Pulau Tikus (Mouse Island) is home to a small community of local fisherman, many colorful fish, and ironically many cats. This popular tourist destination can be reached by an hour ride on a speedboat. Equipped with our snorkeling gear you can enjoy hours of underwater exploration around the island as you observe the diversity of aquatic life present there. You can also climb the signal light tower and view the entire island and surrounding reef from a vantage point high above the island.
Plan on leaving in the morning between 0900 and 1000, enjoying the trip out to the island with one of our local partner businesses. Enjoy time swimming and snorkeling around the island before you eat a traditional “bungkus” (take out) lunch on the beach. Relax on the beach for a bit before exploring the reef some more and then returning to Bengkulu in the afternoon between 1300 and 1400.
