Granite boulder's structure is also unique as other beaches in combination with truly white sands and several trees. It is a nice place for playing in the water or snorkeling.
The golden crown of Lengkuas is actually old lighthouse, built by Dutch in 1882. I don't have information about height, but it is a 12 stories building. My best guest it is at least 50m height. All visitor can freely stepping up to the top of lighthouse. It's a bit tough, but it will paid-off. The view from top of Lengkuas lighthouse is just can not be described. It's totally beautiful all within 360 degree of islands view and surrounding. Don't forget to bring your camera, let's picture tell the story.
There are only 3 people live in Lengkuas. All of them are operators of the lighthouse. They are all warm and very welcome to every guest. Please note, pure water is limited in the island, and even though they have rest room, please use the water wisely.
