Nice view on a small island. A very light trekking needed to get to the peak. Nothing much just walk around. It's windy when I was there, so feel relax. Maybe sun set, could be good.

Actually it is a nice island but there is another more beautiful one in Indonesia so I become comparing. Well, I don't think it's worth to go if you have a tight schedule. Garbage is always the big problem in Indonesia including this place.
