SEBUKU ISLAND

SEBUKUISLAND

 Sebuku (also spelled Seboekoe or Sebeekee) is an island in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra. It is one of the larger islands in the strait and lies just 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) to the north of Sebesi and 2.3 kilometres (1.4 mi) south of Sumatra. It is administratively part of South Lampung Regency, Lampung.

Sebuku Island is one of the largest islands in the Sunda Strait, the path of water that runs between the islands of Java and Sumatra. Located close to the Krakatau volcano, the panoramic view of sandy white beaches against gentle rolling waves of the turquoise sea and the backdrop of a smoking volcano in the distance are a feast for the eyes. Sebuku Island is a popular destination for seaside adventures as well as a relaxing stop for those exploring the Lampung Bay at the most southern end of the island of Sumatra.

Sebuku Island covers just about 18 square kilometers of uninhabited beauty—an ideal spot to rest and recharge while enveloped by cool sea breeze and magnificent surroundings. Many years ago, the island was used as a plantation area and was well known as a producer of Copra. Due to lack of proper management, however, the plantation soon ceased to exist. Not far from Sebuku lies Sebesi Island. Measuring about 16 square kilometers, Sebesi is a slightly smaller island and is the usual spot for travellers touring Lampung Bay to dock to find accommodations.

While perhaps less popular as a dive spot, Sebuku and Sebesi are popular stop-over destinations amongst those who venture to the Krakatau Islands or climb the Anak Krakatau Mountain. Anak Krakatau, (Child of Krakatoa,) is an active volcano that emerged from the caldera of what was once the legendary Krakatoa volcano which blew itself apart in its colossal eruption on 27 August 1883, one of the largest eruptions to shake our planet in modern history.
