Bukal island, is an small island that stands separated from the Cadlao Island but not far from each other, passing between them, you can see some Bahuras / Corals. Different species of the corals are available and can be reached via kayaking. It'seawater was pretty cold, i dont know why? maybe because it was quite late afternoon that time when we stayed on this island.

One thing Ate Beth told us when were here is we have to snorkel and go swimming on this area. Because of its shallow coral reefs and different species of fish, of course always present is nemo....^_^.
