Beyond its postcard perfect island paradise features - it has become popular among researchers.
As Hoga is quite small, these periods are also its high seasons for visitors. The island is blessed with white sand beaches, shady coconut groves and a beautiful reef perfect for extended snorkeling and diving sessions. There are no roads or vehicles on the island, just one very small village on the northern end. Whether you enjoy the beach life, lazing about in your hammock or getting in as many dives as possible, Hoga has it all.
Several homestays can be found on the island, as well as two resorts. One of these is Hoga Island Dive Resort, an eco resort that blends smoothly into its natural sur-rounds, and is devoted to using only sustainable materials found on the island. The owners invest a lot into the community, especially in education and financial support for the local families. Over the years, Hoga Island Dive Resort has become renowned among more adventurous travelers keen to enjoy unspoilt nature at its best with clean budget accommodation, great hospitality, good food and tranquility.
The other resort is called Hoga Dive Resort, which is located right by the arrival jetty of Hoga. Many dive operators do their lunch stop here during dive trips around the island.
How to Get There
The boat from Wangi-Wangi to Kaledupa stops at Hoga if enough people want to be dropped off there. If the boat does not stop, you’ll need to take a smaller boat from Kaledupa to Hoga jetty. If you have booked at Hoga Island Dive Resort or one of the homestays, a boat from Kaledupa harbor will usually be arranged for you.
