Just east of Bali lies the nature reserve of Moyo Island.
Fifteen kilometers off the coast of Sumbawa, Moyo is at the western end of the Nusa Tenggara islands, a grouping that begins with Lombok and stretches some 1,300 km east to Timor.
When to go
Eight degrees south of the Equator, Moyo enjoys a warm, tropical climate year-round with the most agreeable months being May to October. Humidity is highest between November and March, during the rainy season. Even during the heaviest rains, however, the sun is rarely out of sight for long.
The monsoon months of February and March are particularly green and frequently free of rain. This is also the prime time for spotting whale sharks, giant manta rays and other migrating sea life.
