The Anambas Islands: Dive the South China Sea

Overview
The Anambas Islands are located between Singapore and the Natuna islands in the South China Sea. Earlier the islands were better known as a base for off shore oil drilling and natural gas explorations,but today Anambas has gained popularity among divers on account of its pristine corals and azure seas where whalesharks may suddenly appear. The islands are easiest accessible by live-aboards from Singapore and Malaysia.
Anambas is the latest district in the province of the Riau Archipelago. Best-known sites are the underwater reefs of Tokong Berlayar, the Malang Biru island which has steep slopes, the Katoaka reef, and the Seven Skies wreck.

To Stay
Accommodation is only available on Siantan Island, about half hour away from the Airport by boat. On Siantan Island we find the "Capital City" of the Anambas Archipelago, a very pleasant place called Kota Tarempa. Here in Kota Tarempa are three hotels,
1) Wisma Tanjung Indah
An atmospheric simple Wooden hotel build on stilts at the waterfront offering 40 rooms. Here VIP rooms cost about 10 American Dollars a night and Standard rooms about 5 dollars. The hotel has its simple charm but is definitely nowhere remotely comfortable.
2) The Sakura Guest-House
Another 2 story wooden construction offering 6 basic rooms for about 5 American Dollars a night.
3) The Anambas Resort
The best and most comfortable "upmarket" resort in the whole archipelago is the Anambas Resort about a 10 minute walk from Kota Tamperah in the next village called Tanjung Tebu. Here you find concrete bungalows built on stilts over a sleepy sheltered bay with hot shower, the resort is also offering a rather good restaurant. Prices for one of these large and adequate rooms seem to be about 25 American dollars a night.

Tips
The Anambas islands are very remote and have little facilities, including little health care, while restaurants sell only Indonesian food. Therefore, when you wish to dive here, best travel on fully equipped liveaboards or take your own yacht with complete telecommunications connectivity.

Get There
By Air:
Anambas is served only by Riau Airlines which flies to Pulau Matak, "gateway" of the Anambas Islands . This airline operates thrice weekly Fokker-50 flights from Tanjung Pinang’s Kijang Airfield on the Island of Bintan. Bintan is connected by hourly fast ferry from Singapore. If you leave from Singapore at 0700AM by boat to Tanjung Pinang on Bintan, you are able to connect to the Riau Airlines flight which brings you on the ground in Matak Airfield at 1200 Noon. The airport, owned by ConocoPhilips for offshore drilling and natural gas explorations, also serves as a domestic terminal .It has a 1,200 meter runway and is beautifully located by a shallow lagoon.
By Boat:
Best is to travel to and around Anambas by yacht or live-aboard from Singapore, Batam or Bintan.
Twice a month the Pelni shipping lines has a ferry, the KM Bukit Raya that calls on Kota Tarempa (the Archipelago’s capital "City") on Siantan Island. You can catch it from the Tanjung Priok harbour in Jakarta, Capital of Indonesia. Sailing times are prone to delays. This boat also delivers almost all the necessary goods to the Islands.
