Labuan Cermin: A Lake As Clear As Glass

Labuan Cermin Lake Derawan

Indonesia’s natural and cultural charms are countless. Moreover, its geographical location, crossed by the equator, makes it abundant with alluring biodiversity.

With millions of islands spread across the archipelago, there is one with a beauty that should not be missed. This place is Labuan Cermin Lake.

Clear Water with Two Flavors in Lake Labuan Cermin

Labuan Cermin has many interesting things to offer tourists.

Firstly, there is a lake that combines different types of water.

Aquatic animals can live in the saltwater and freshwater parts of the lake. Because there are two different layers of water, saltwater at the bottom and freshwater at the top, the upper part has freshwater fish. If you want to see turtles and coral reefs, you can dive to the bottom of the lake, which is filled with seawater.

This uniqueness makes Labuan Cermin’s natural attractions nicknamed the magic of two flavors. This can happen because the lake’s geography is near the coast, causing such natural phenomena.

Second, the lake’s water amazes tourists. Lake water depicts crystal clear conditions with a shimmering surface. Because of the clarity of this water, cracks and tree branches appear at the bottom of the lake. No wonder this place is called Labuan Cermin.

Location of Labuan Cermin

Labuan Cermin is located in the Biduk-Biduk area, Biduk Biduk, Berau Regency, East Kalimantan. Although the place is quite far from the city, there are clues at every bend in the road to Labuan Cermin, especially now that you can use Google Maps, which is more practical and easier.

The trip to Labuan Cermin

It is located in Labuan Kelambu Village, Biduk-biduk District, and can be reached from Berau Regency. Although the distance traveled is quite far, the fatigue will be paid off by the beauty of this tourist destination.

The air route is recommended for this trip because it shortens the time. Head to Berau and then transit to Balikpapan. Then choose a direct connecting flight so you don’t have to bother with luggage at Sepinggan Airport. Arriving at Kalimaru Berau Airport, you can find a rental car to continue the journey to Biduk-Biduk.

Getting to Biduk takes 5-6 hours, or up to 7 hours if you use a travel service.

The damaged roads that must be traversed during the trip require tourists to be careful because they will be slightly shaken to the right and left, especially when the driver drives the vehicle at high speed. For the record, bring anti-sickness medicine for those who are prone to motion sickness.
