From Singapore / Jakarta you can reach Balikpapan very easily.

From Jakarta it is better to take morning flight between 06.00 – 08.00 AM Jakarta time with Bouraq; Lion Air, Kartika Air, Air Asia, and Garuda Indonesia, so you can connect nicely with Kalstar, Wings Air and Sriwijaya Balikpapan – Berau 

Silk Air/Singapore Airlines has daily flight to Balikpapan. At the mean time taking Mon/Wed/Thu and Saturday Singapore – Balikpapan 07.55 – 10.15 is the best so you can connect with flight Balikpapan to Berau by Wings Air, Sriwijaya and Kalstar  at the same day.


From Berau taxi toTanjung Batu and take a boat to the island.
Or directly a fast boat from Berau to Derawan, ca 2.5 h
You can call DarJohn (+6281347955950) or e-mail: about the boat.

Another alternative way to get there is through Malesia:
