This photo taken in Pini Island, one of the biggest island in area of Batu Islands. This island is located on the south of North Sumatera Province. There is no special public transport coming to this island. The easiest way is getting the regular wooden boat from Teluk Dalam (capital of district of South Nias. It’s in Nias island, and can be reached by 1 hour flying from Medan), and continued by charter boats to Pini taking 3 hours sailing for one way.
I came here not for holiday purpose. It was one of assignment when I worked for humanitarian organization to do reconstruction of elementary school in the island. There were not so many occupants within the island. Perhaps, it was 30-40 households only. It was exhausted journey, but the view, I even couldn’t describe by words. It was so natures, with the blue sky, blue sea and coconut trees around. It was one of paradise on earth.
