Tanjung Binga is the name of a village placed at North of Belitung island. This place is becoming interesting because of the beauty of beach and island surrounding and also the traditional culture of local fisherman. Here, you can find pictures of Tanjung Binga.
If you take a look to the sea, you will find there are at least 5 small islands spreading on the sea. It is clear to see by your eyes that, all islands are white sands and many corners of the island decorated with granite boulders. Interested to go there ? Yes, lets call the people surrounding and ask them for boat rental. It will cost you less than USD 35,- for several hours journey to the island. One of the island is Lengkuas. You can see clearly a lighthouse on Lengkuas from this port. Please be careful, the boat is for fisherman, not a tourist ship.
Tanjung Binga is actually a village 22km North of Tanjungpandan and 8km West of Tanjung Tinggi. This is a fishery port and most residence work as fisherman. If your favourite dish is grill fish, please make sure to be in Tanjung Binga in the morning around 7.00. This is time where fisherman back from fishing. You can select whatever fish you would like to buy and grill at the hotel later on. Why you must do that ? I tell you the taste of fish that totally fresh and just come out from sea, is very much delicious than the one that has been in refrigerator for several hours.
Other than fish, favourite place to visit is Bukit Berahu. It is a resort and restaurant, placed on the hill facing open sea. Panorama is nice, also beach, full white sands even though the boulders are not as big and pretty as Tanjung Tinggi. The restaurant will serve you a decent food likes ordinary restaurant in the city, likes Jakarta. From restaurant you can view open sea, so you can enjoy your meal in a nice panorama beside you. The restaurant also has nice and clean swimming pool. Lets jump in if you feel weather is too hot, especially during middle of the day.
Beach and Tanjung Binga village can be access from Tanjung Pandan capital town with 20km distance with 30 minutes trip.
