  • A local doctor in Jungutbatu will charge you $30 – $50 for a consultation. There is Puskesmas or Community Health Centre which is cheaper, how ever travel insurance is a must.


  • There should be no shortage of places offering snorkeling, surfing and island tour. Negotiate if you want a good price but sometimes not really working in high season.


  • To base your tipping structure to give the local people – the average wage is IDR 100,000  a day so have some IDR 10,000 to IDR 20,000 notes to give them and the gauge is base on what they do for you and where you are.
