Lampung is a province located at the southern tip of Sumatra Island. This province is actually very rich in wonderful natural beauties but many of them are not yet developed well. Tegal Mas Resort is one of the few exceptions. This resort is a great destination with wonderful facilities.
Some people say that Tegal Mas resort is the Maldives of Lampung. They exaggerate, of course, but there is no denying that this island is indeed beautiful. Here is all you need to know about Tegal Mas Island, a resort island in South Lampung.
The Tegal Island is located at Lampung Bay. It is roughly ten kilometers away from Bandar Lampung, the capital of the province. The closest mainland town is at Teluk Pandan, only one kilometer away. Since the island is located deep in the bay, it is well protected from big waves. As a result, the waters at Tegal Island is very calm. The island is also easily accessible via boat from several towns in Lampung.
Rich Marine Life
One of the reasons why people compare Tegal Island with the Maldives is because of its rich underwater life. The coral reef here has a vibrant life. Furthermore, exploring the coral here doesn’t require you to use a scuba diving gear. Some of the shallow corals are great enough to explore by snorkeling. Additionally, you can interact with the fish and small critters that call those corals their home.

That rate already includes a round trip from Sari Ringgung Beach, snorkeling gear, breakfast, and canoes. Additionally, cottages or rooms are really instagramable.
