Snorkeling in Belitung Photo Gallery

Snorkeling in Belitung
   Updated: 29 Sep 2013 02:06 pm

The beauty of Belitung is not only the scene that you see in the surface. The underwater view of Belitung is also interesting to explore. The easy way to do it is just swim and snorkeling in the clear water of Belitung sea.

Based on information from several friends, the best place for snorkeling in Belitung is at Batu Malang Penyu. This is a giant granite boulder far in the sea just in front of Tanjung Tinggi beach. We do not have documentation or underwater photo from this place yet. Another unique of Batu Malang Penyu is there is cave just above the water while the underwater coral is also nice to view at the bottom.

The snorkeling photo documentation that we present in this page we found from 2 places each Tanjung Tinggi beach and Lengkuas island:

The place that we explore is just in front of Tanjung Tinggi main gulf, called Pelabuhan Bilik. The best place to explore is in the right side, just at the bottom of the granite boulders about 100 meters from the shore. Visibility is quite okey and the deep is about 3-4 meters.

Our experience about underwater life is minimum, so we can not give comment on the situation. All just we can do is taking a picture and present it here, then you can comment your self. Please note these photos are taken from the beach just 100 meters from the shore of the most crowded beach in Belitung. You can image there will be many more un-touched snorkeling places that proabably can give surprise beauty.

Lengkuas Island is more natural than Tanjung Tinggi. Since we need to spend 30 minutes trip by boat from Belitung's main land to reach Lengkuas, this place promise much better underwater scene. We explore the underwater life surrounding bottom of granite boulders just in the left side of white sands penisula facing Aji island. You can see the photos from above galery.

Same as experience in Tanjung Tinggi, we can not give any comment about the photos. These photos are just taken within 100 meter square area. There are several other places surrounding Lengkuas, Tukong Lengkuas island and Aji island (in front of Lengkuas) that are not yet captured. In the next explorer we hope we can get more pictures from several other spot in Lengkuas Island.

The above photos taken on October 12, 2008 using Sony T70 digital camera covered by Sony Marine Pack MPK-THE. Unfortunately, we set the photo VGA size, and the wheather was not really supporting us, so the picture has not yet giving satifying result. But for the purpose of giving information and reference, snorkeling in Belitung is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, and the spots are spreading in so many places just under the granite boulders.

If you travel with our Tour Package, we provide several snorkeling sets including life jacket if needed. It will just cost you IDR 50.000/set per day. You can share with several friends within the day. More info about Belitung underwater can be found at DIVING in Belitung page.

What's visitor said ?
Its simply awesome!!!! This is one of my best holiday, as a photography hobbys and also as naturalist. From my view, Belitong preserve another beauty: the unique formation of the rocks !! This potential can use explored for special interest tourist (geology. physics). I am confidence Belitong have a unique geological history that has capability to get interest of young geosciences likes me.

One thing for attention, there are many granite rocks became victim of vandalism !
