    Amazing banget ini pulau,,, saya tanggal 15-17 Oktober 2014 kemarin baru saja dari sana, keliling belitung, wow pemandanganya sungguh indah, banyak batu-batu besar (sampai terlintas pertanyaan "dari mana batu segede gini bisa ada di sini") sungguh kuasa Illahi, Subhanalloh.. Ternyata 3 hari belum cukup untuk menikmati jalan-jalan ke Belitung, dan saya rasa masih kurang lama di sana.. semoga anak cucu masih bisa menikmati keindahan alam ini. "Visit Belitung 2014 PT.

    Saya baru saja kembali dar Belitong reuni. pemandangan pantai dengan bebatuannya sungguh indah. Karya yang Maha Kuasa untuk umat manusia. d P.Lengkuas ada mercusuar yang dibangun tahun 1882 setinngi 17 lantai dengan jumlah anak tangga 17 x 17 lantai. dari atas mercusuar saya melihat pemandangan alam yang indah. ada rasa penasaran klau tidak menaiki mercusuat krn tingginya ita yang melihatnya mungkin nggak sanggup tapi klau sdh sampai atas ada rasa kepuasaan dalam diri diri kita. Belitong adalah tempat yang indah untuk rekreasi alam dan pendidikan bagi keluarga. Semoga satu saat kami bsa kembali kesana dengan teman dan keluarga. Selamat berpetualang dinegri nan indah Belitong.
