Banana Island on the Coast of Lampung


Pisang Island is one of the westernmost islands in Lampung Province which directly faces the Indian Ocean. This island is a separate sub-district within the West Coast District, Lampung Province.

The origin of the name Pulau Pisang is from its shape like a banana, when viewed from the top of the mainland of Sumatra Island. So this name is very popular in that area.
