Enggano Island Paradise


Only a 40 minute flight from Bengkulu by light plane and you will find the island paradise of Enggano Island with two beautiful neighbouring islands of Pulau Dua and Pulau Marbau as well. These two islands are simply stunning to visit and the remoteness of the location means we had this paradise to ourselves. It’s been my goal for a while to come back and photograph the beauty of this place with the drone and I finally managed to do it and the weather did not disappoint either. I’ve decided that I want to create a specialised project by focusing on tropical islands from a drone perspective. I have 5 islands done and head to the Philippines next week to get some more drone footage from above of the beauty of these tropical marvels.

While at Enggano by pure coincidence I bumped into another expat from Bengkulu who was out testing the surf at Enggano Island and it didn’t disappoint as you can see form the video above.

I had the drone settings on to capture both video and photo and just can’t see myself ever changing from this setting. It captures the beauty in stills as well as video at the same time so you get the best of both worlds. My pet project mySumatra is certainly benefiting from the new library of images and video I am able to build from an aerial perspective.

Surf breaking on the west coast is so clear and glassy, and not another surfer apart from two westerners.
