Pahawang, Tanjung Putus, and Kelagian are coral islands in Lampung. One thing i love about these places is that we can see a lot of anemone fish even from few meters from the beach, especially in Tanjung Putus Island. There are also a lot of Kima (gigantic clam/Tridacna) around.

Location: Lampung Province, Indonesia
