LOCATION & ACCESS
From the south our property can be approached via the “Oberoi Road” turn off, 6km north of the cross-roads at Pemenang. Immediately opposite the TVRI tower turn right and drive slowly down our 500m country road. From the Tanjung side, cars enter via the paving stone road, driving carefully through the village with the turn off the main road right on the corner by the green and white mosque.
The mooring basin is centred on coordinates 08°21.833’S, 116°07.750’E with an entry way point almost due north at 08°20.432’S and 116°07.685’E. Please refer to our Sea Chart below.
The approach from the east tracks through 08°20.067’S and 116°08.361’E in deep water to our way-point at 08°20.432’S, 116°07.685’E. From here turn almost due south into Medana Bay following our leading marks into the mooring basin. If your approach is a little to the north of this track you may be surprised by the depths suddenly becoming shallower from over 20m to just 7m as you pass over some coral. Don’t be alarmed – you do still have 7m of water in this shallow, good for fishing, spot
The approach from the west tracks in north of Gili Air and Gili Trawangan to the same way point, staying well clear (north) of the coral fringe around Tanjung Medana (headland).
The mooring basin is at 08°21.833’S, 116°07.750’E
From the way-point please observe and align your entrance with the Leading Marks set beside our pontoons on the beach – two white squares with red outlines. These will bring you in safely along a deep channel 300m wide and 30m deep into the central mooring area 150m wide and 15m deep. At night time the Rear Upper Mark has a white vertical strip light, and the Lower Forward Mark is a vertical blue LED strip.
Our Port (red) and Starboard (green) marker buoys, marking the boundaries of our mooring and anchoring basin, are set at a 4m minimum depth inside the protective coral reef boundaries. Sometimes these markers are damaged by local fishing boats. It is best to follow the Leading Marks.
The mooring buoys are the black floats paired with a smaller white float at the end of the painter for easy hooking and lifting on to your boat.
We take every care to ensure the good condition of the risers and anchor fittings and attachments, but ultimate boat safety remains the responsibility of the skipper.
As a private facility it is a requirement that all visiting boats berthing, mooring or anchoring and using our jetty and facilities shall register and pay the applicable fees.
