Located deep inside a the reef on NW coast of Lombok, Medana Bay is calm and well protected in both monsoon seasons.
 
APPROACH
 
Coordinates of the Marina 08° 21.833’S and 116°07.750’E


The approach from the east tracks through 08°20.067’S and 116°08.361’E in deep water to our way-point at 08°20.432’S, 116°07.685’E. From here turn almost due south into Medana Bay following our leading marks into the mooring basin. If your approach is a little to the north of this track you may be surprised by the depths suddenly becoming shallower from over 20m to just 7m as you pass over some coral. Don’t be alarmed – you do still have 7m of water in this shallow, good for fishing.


The approach from the west tracks in north of Gili Air and Gili Trawangan to the same way point, staying well clear (north) of the coral fringe around Tanjung Medana (headland).
The mooring basin is at 08°21.833’S, 116°07.750’E


From the way-point please observe and align your entrance with the Leading Marks set beside our pontoons on the beach – two white squares with red outlines. These will bring you in safely along a deep channel 300m wide and 30m deep into the central mooring area 150m wide and 15m deep. At night time the Rear Upper Mark has a white vertical strip light, and the Lower Forward Mark is a vertical blue LED strip.


Our Port (red) and Starboard (green) marker buoys, marking the boundaries of our mooring and anchoring basin, are set at a 4m minimum depth inside the protective coral reef boundaries. Sometimes these markers are damaged by local fishing boats. It is best to follow the Leading Marks.

The mooring buoys are the black floats paired with a smaller white float at the end of the painter for easy hooking and lifting on to your boat.



We take every care to ensure the good condition of the risers and anchor fittings and attachments, but ultimate boat safety remains the responsibility of the skipper.
