Off the eastern coast of Sumatra, flanked by the Gaspar and Karimata Straits, lies an enchanting island with beautiful beaches and fascinating scenery called: Belitung Island. Its unique landscape, decorated with pearly white sand beaches, crystal clear water, and magnificent granite stone formations on its shallow shores, are some of the best features of the island.

Although as not popular as Bali or Lombok, Belitung Island is blessed with some of the best beaches of the country. The sand is soft and as white as palm sugar, and some even argue that the sand here is even whiter than that in Bali.

The most distinct features of the Belitung Beaches are the fascinating granite rock formations that spread through its shallow shores. Some formations of these giant rocks even have short tunnels underneath, making this an exciting playground for visitors to bathe in its calm waters. One of the most iconic granite rock beach sceneries is found at the Tanjung Tinggi Beach.

Tanjung Tinggi is flanked by two beaches peninsula. This white sandy beach is unique because there are hundreds of large granite stones that are scattered in the peninsula and also in the sea, in front of the beach. The Granite size is ranging from a few cubic meters to hundreds of cubic meters bigger than a building of houses. You can ride, run and jump between the granite to enjoy an exclusive view from every angle you stand.


The stones are located above the white sand. You can walk on the white sand between the stones and crystal clear sea water. White sand is everywhere along the coast. Children will love to play there. Because the waves are not large, clear sea water with a sandy sea bottom surface. The kids would really love to play on the beach. You do not have to worry about shark attacks, because it’s never happened in the Pacific Islands. The only thing that sometimes has to watch out for is the jellyfish, particularly the large ones.
