There are two versions that make this beach called Batu Bedil Beach. The first version states that the name of the rifle stone is because here there is a thump of a rifle or cannon that visitors can hear. The sound of the cannon (rifle) itself emerged from the waves of the beach which struck two large granite pits. Besides the sound of a bang on the beach also emerged from several granite stones when hit. The second version states that the name of the rifle stone is caused because this beach has 3 parallel stone clusters that form a formation similar to a cannon arrangement (rifle). Interestingly from the three clusters of rock that form cannon formations, between these rocks are separated by three different things. In the first and second stone clusters separated by white sand, while the second and third rock formations are separated by mangrove trees. Among the three existing bridges by the local community then made a simple bridge to connect.

In addition to white sand and clear water, such as beaches in the western part of Belitung, Batu Bedil Beach has the characteristics of large granite rocks. This beach itself has a view of Limau Seri Island in front of it. Palau Limau Seri itself can be visited by crossing it over a sand bridge. At this beach also presents a snorkeling spot not far from the beach. Another uniqueness of Batu Bedil Beach is the presence of heart-shaped granite stones. The heart-shaped stone which is then called the love stone in Batu Bedil Beach has a diameter of one meter. You can find this love stone in the East coast of Batu Bedil Beach. Although still a mystery, this love stone is also a special attraction for visitors to Batu Bedil Beach.

    This beach is still quiet and the access is quite far, but the atmosphere is still original. There are some unique things like the story of poisonous wells, the sound of guns and there are several small islands around it.
