Pulau Kalong is literally translated to Bat island in Bahasa. This is due to the magnificent show you can watch when dusk hits. It is only a small island that is left usually kept for the evenings as it is incredibly magical just after sunset. This is an unmissable event!
From your liveaboard, you can look up at the orange night sky and watch the flying foxes migrate from one tree to the next. Silhouettes of the Kalong Island bats dance around the island.
This is a beautiful show for any visitors who wish to see wildlife take the stage. During the day, these flying foxes of Kalong Island tend to hang out in the mangroves.
