Uniqueness of Penyabong Beach


This is a beach with many granite rocks and white sand bay likes Tanjung Tinggi. Most above of pictures taken from Baru Lubang. Local fisherman use Batu Lubang also as their fishery port. The unique thing of Batu Lubang is the big granite boulder as big as a hill as you can see from one of above picture. Batu Lubang can be reach from Tanjungpandan by car, it will take about one hour trip with 70km distance. Please note no infrastructure available in this place, but if you are lucky, there are some simple traditional restaurant similar to the one in Tanjung Tinggi. But, you must buy the fish directly from fisherman and ask the restaurant to cook for you. It could be a nice experience.

Belantu was becoming different since these areas was not becoming target of tin mining exploitation. That cause development in this area slightly lag than others. But, after booming of pepper price in late 1990s followed by palm oil plantation and re-born of tin mining in early 2000, the living standard for some family has been improved and becoming more balance with other areas in Belitung.

Membalong has not yet becoming common tourist destination. We only recommend this place for truly backpacker visitor or landscape photographers who do not expect decent and well equipped infrastructure.
