If you want to make a day of it, you could cross the sandbanks at the island’s western end to Yenbuba, then continue along the path that joins Yenbuba to the villages on Mansuar’s north coast. It’s also possible to cross from the north coast,  past a lake to the south coast village of Sauwandarek and arrange a pickup from there. There’s also a lookout point on the hills above the western end of Kri that provides panoramic views to Waigeo and Gam in the north, and southward across the Dampier Strait to Batanta. Sturdy footwear is recommended for the jungle paths that climb to the lookout!
