Tawun Jetty at south Lombok island, Indonesia

Our second day in Lombok island.

The first stop in our itinerary was snorkeling at Gili Nanggu (Gili means island in Indonesia language). Tawun jetty (S8.74473 E116.01998) seems to be the only jetty ferrying visitors to the Nanggu island.

The jetty area is only a small hut with the snorkeling gears...

Unique grilled fish stall spotted at Tawun Jetty, Lombok Island.

After we had our breakfast in the resort on the second day morning, we travel from Kila Senggigi Beach Resort to Tawun jetty for the island hopping trip...the journey took about 2 hours by ground transport.
When our 'party van' almost reach the jetty, I noticed there were many BBQ fish stall (S8.74473 E116.01998) along the road. Because of the curiosity, me and one of the team mate walked the stall immediately after the van stop.

The lady owner of the stall was friendly, we politely told her that we want to take some photos of her BBQ fishes, she agree instantly.

I like the fragrant of the BBQ fish, too bad we just had our breakfast and really can't have this big fish anymore...otherwise, I'll definitely try it!

 photo IMG_3172_zps73e7582f.jpg
The BBQ fish were ready to customer

I couldn't understand when the lady owner tried to explain on the ingredients and the herbs they use to marinate the fish...too bad that we only communicate in the hand language...
But I can smell the delicious of the fish...

I was too tempted by the fish and keep taking photos even without having it and also forgot to ask for the price of the fish. But I believe it won't be expansive...

 photo IMG_3177_zps44d97783.jpg

I promise myself that, I will definitely go back to Lombok island again and I won't miss this BBQ big fish on my next visit! I'm very sure! Haha!

The jetty (5 sec exposure)

The photos turn out to be quite satisfied. This was unexpected!

By walking back to the restaurant of the resort, I tried another long exposure for 10 sec to capture the resort included the mythical Twin Peak as a backdrop. Well, I like the photo!

By looking at the Twin Peak that moment, I felt some mysteries behind and understand the reason peoples in the island call - Mythical Twin Peak.

I joined the party at the restaurant after the above photo taken...
