Going to the Island

We were in our private car so we just followed the map to Bloc Camping Site, then were instructed to go to the orange house beside the parking area. We parked our car there and we were assisted to the docking area and ride the boat. The boat ride is just 3-5 minutes.

When we reached the island, we were assisted again and the caretakers got our luggages.

Surroundings

The surroundings of the island is charming, it has a perfect landscaping, but it looks like a forest. Maybe… a forest landscape? If you know what I mean. 🤣

Living Room – Second Floor

This second living room is better than the first one. Because this is bigger and has a better arrangement of furniture, and it gives us the feeling of living in the past.
