Another island than another. Because this foreign island besides being enchanting, this island is also known by the community as a legendary place because it is believed to have been visited by pirates (lanun) who have supernatural powers. So visiting here you will be able to enjoy a holiday nuanced in nature and also history.
There is no tariff to enter and enjoy offerings on Pandan Island. You are only required to maintain the cleanliness and sustainability of Pandan Island. Some relics that are considered to be traces of lanun must also be preserved and must not be damaged.
As mentioned earlier that Pandan Island was indeed believed by the local community to be a lanun (pirate) stopover. The existence of pirates on Pandan Island is indeed more or less true. This is because here we can find a trail that can be regarded as evidence. The footprints from the lanun in Pandan Island are in the form of a pair of footprints which have made an impression and are clearly visible on a granite. In addition to footprints, on this island you can also find anchors or anchors of ships or ropes of ships that have been petrified. The size of the ship's rope that can be found here shows that the ship is very large. One more unique thing that can be found on Pandan Island is the presence of dolphin-shaped stone heads that emerge from the seabed.
Here you can also find a uniqueness that is the existence of a five meter deep carved well. Interestingly the well that is above the granite rocks, the water is never dry even though the dry season. In addition, the position of the island and the well near the sea does not make the well water taste salty. But the well water that is here feels fresh. The atmosphere on Pandan Island itself is far from crowded or quiet. Because here is very rarely visited by people. With a calm atmosphere then you can relax to the fullest. Not to mention if you see a very exotic island panorama, it will make anyone feel at home here.
Because it is remote and uninhabited, here it is arguably minimal facilities. Therefore you who are planning to go to Pandan Island are advised to bring all supplies and also food and beverage supplies from the place of departure.
Pandan Island is located in the Village of Tanjung Kelumpang, Dendang District, Tanjung Kelumpang, East Belitung.
