Why ? Because you can take public transport from anywhere in Lombok to get to the closest harbours, theres public minibuses and Bemos to get here.And then from the coast theres many different boat operators, the cheapest ones for 250.000 roundtrip for the whole boat. So save your money and get here locally and cheap. I heard the rip off tour agents in Kuta Lombok charge almost 300 US dollars to get to Kondo.
Beautiful empty island where you almost should stay overnight to get the full potential out of it. That means camping in your own tent or sleeping in your own hammock under a "brygga" Indonesian covered version of a rest place....if rainy season bring some big blue plastic tarps and rope like we did, then you can "close" the whole thing....see photo...
Good snorkelling with very very good quality soft corals, not so much big fish and strong currents.
Theres a warung that sell only snacks and instant mie with a fried egg and instant drinks, so be prepared to loose a few kilos if you stay longer like we did. We stayed for 2 weeks....total bliss. No shower but a semi ok toilet....and the old owners of the warung are an amazingly friendly and helpful couple, they will do their best to help you out.
Definetly recommended, forget about the over exploited Gilis on the other side of Lombok, only loosers go there.
