The crown of the island of Lengkuas is actually an old lighthouse, built by the Dutch since 1882. We have no information about the height of this building, our estimate is approximately the same as a 12-story building. Approximately 50m. Every visitor can freely ride to the top of the lighthouse. This will be a little difficult because it requires extra energy, but don't worry your actions will not be in vain. The view from the top of the Galangal lighthouse is so beautiful to only be told. Really beautiful, 360 degrees around the island and its surroundings. If you go up there, don't forget to bring a camera, let your photos tell the beauty.


Facilities at Galangal Island

There are only 3 people living in Lengkuas. They are the operators of the lighthouse. They are very friendly to every visitor. Please note, water supply is very limited on this island, although there are toilets available, please use water wisely. This place feels very relaxed, the wind blowing is very fresh, you can sunbathe and rest on the white sand that surrounds the island under the protection of coconut trees.

Access to Galangal Island

Galangal can be reached by renting a boat from Tanjung Binga. The rental price is around Rp. 350 thousand for a single trip which usually takes half a day. Travel time from the beach in Belitung to Galangal is only about 30-45 minutes. The chartered boat can carry 30-40 people and this is a fishing boat that is usually used for fishing at night. This boat is quite unique, where there is a frame on both sides of the boat which makes this boat stable even though sailing on the waves is quite large.

    This island is really amazing ... I was just 15-17 October 2014 from just there, going around Belitung, wow the view is really beautiful, lots of big stones (to the question "where could such a large stone be here") really divine power, Subhanalloh .. It turns out that 3 days are not enough to enjoy the trip to Belitung, and I think it will not be long there ... I hope our children and grandchildren can still enjoy the beauty of this nature.

    I just returned from Belitong reunion. the view of the beach with its rocks is really beautiful. Almighty work for humanity. d P. Galanguas there is a lighthouse that was built in 1882 as high as 17 floors with a number of stairs 17 x 17 floors. from the top of the lighthouse I see beautiful natural scenery. there is a sense of curiosity if you do not climb the lighthouse because of the height of ita who see it may not be able to, but if you get up there is a sense of satisfaction in ourselves. Belitong is a beautiful place for nature recreation and education for families. Hopefully one day we can go back there with friends and family. Have a good adventure in the beautiful country of Belitong.

    "galangal" is not just a name for "galangal" generally for medicine and "galangal island" is one of the proofs of who said "galangal island" can not treat longing for the beauty of beautiful coral beaches.
