This place calles Mentikus island. We call this place by ourself a Photographer Rocky Paradise because of it is a rocky paradise. Let take a look to rocks, it is different from ordinary granite boulders in Belitung, but it is in the beaches as well. It is a paradise because this place is totally un-touched by tourism industry by local community neither outsider visitors.
That is why for that purpose we will not expose more about this place except the pictures. BelitungIsland.COM team found this place in early 2009. After doing several exploration, we finally offer this place as photography hunting destination to 2 of our photography tour guest.
It is still trial tour program, but by looking as the result from one of our guest, this place in just FANTASTIC for landscape photography. One of the photographer has agreed to contribute his foto to be published at BelitungIsland.COM.
The colourful rock combination with white sandy beaches and calm sea water in this "Photographer's Rocky Paradise" could probably even better to be combined with human interest, model or pre-wedding photography. These photos was taken during middle of the day between 10.00 until 14.00. There will be even more creativity can be made from this place if we take sunrise or sunset season. All copyrights of these "Photographer's Rocky Paradise" photos are with Irfan.
For the purpose of maintaining the natural beauty of this place, at this moment in time BelitungIsland.COM will not expose this place for ordinary people neither ordinary tour program. For this moment we will only introduce this place only to serious photographer hunter. The "Photographer's Rocky Paradise" is not an actual name of this place, it is just for recognition purpose.
