Around Pulau Aman

Trip Overview

Head N from the jetty, then NW towards the floating aquaculture structures to get away from the ferry route. From the aquaculture head W to the gap between the two islands (Aman and Gudung). One might have to portage across the sand bar between the islands at low tide, but I could just get through with a scrape. Scenic fishing village on the W coast of Pulau Aman. Lots of fishermen along the shore. After rounding the S point of the island, found a nice gravel beach on the E shore for a picnic. Hiking trail up the hill, but did not hike. Completed the island round (mind the shallows just S of the pier), then retraced the channel crossing with the aquaculture as the intermediate destination. Total trip time 3 hours including picnic.
