So what will we see on this Island?
As the name implies, this island has its own charm, especially in the afternoon. Thousands of fruit bats will come out of the mangrove forest in the afternoon. And usually they fly in search of food to Flores Island which is only located in front of the island of Kalong.
So the special attraction of this island is to see thousands of bats flying. With a combination of beautiful sunsets, this is certainly one of the special places to visit.
