For boats

This spot is calm in the SE monsoon season. Gili Lawa Laut is another beautiful anchorage. Charter and local boats often moor here.
 
Approach
 
The C-maps are way off  in this area.  Do not pass anywhere near Crystal Rock at night as the location on the C-map and Navionics are wrong. The location of  Crystal Rock is: 008 26.37S and 119 34.03 E (0.4nm NNE of  NW tip of  Gili Lawa Laut).
 
Mooring buoys
 
NOTE: anchoring is prohibited here.
 
There are two mooring buoys, often taken by local boats. It is good to come here early morning. If you are lucky tie a line and enjoy the island and reef. If both taken you can just float on the surface and snorkel alternately. You can also ask local boat stuff to moor alongside to them, but at least one person should be on the boat to release the lines if needed.

For crews

The snorkeling and diving are excellent here. Dive or snorkel along the coastal reef, swim to the white sand beach, or for the more adventurous take the dinghy out to Crystal Rock. Snorkeling and diving here is amazing but watch for strong currents. Black tip and white tip sharks are often swimming here.   
There are no paths but hiking the foothills is easy and worth it for the beauty view.
