The beach with 2 artistic granite peninsula, white sands, red river estuary, adidas rock, lion king rock, mangrove, and others, the most popular destination.
The sea surrounding Belitung island is safe, the wave tend to be calm along the seasons. Before you jump into the water, please make sure the sea is clean from jely fish.
