Spent at least a day to enjoy this gem. We went snorkeling for a whole day at 3 different spots, and it was fantastic. One of the most beautiful corals and marine life in Indonesia. Please keep the place clean.

Bangka is a lovely island and October is a good time to visit. The only month that is not good for diving and Snorkeling is August, because of large waves and a choppy sea.
