Batu Berlayar Island

In the morning around 5AM, we prepared our journey to the series of island in north Belitung. With one car and one minibus, we headed to beach in north and continue with two traditional boats.
My first impression I was so amaze with the colour and clarity of the sea, its green and blue, and after about 15 mins sailed from the Selayar beach, I found for the first time of the huge granite piled on this tiny island. Its more beautiful than I ever had see on movie and tv.

Talking with bang Ito, he said that there was a bigger island as we can see a boundary on the coral means that the water was on that line. Hmm very interesting fact, I thought that all sea surface has increasment due to mealting polar ice.

We also founded the starfish around the island, some of us very enthusiast on it. These starfish not move at all, but I fell they alive.


All of us look very happy with the starter, most of us trying to capture the moment and picture of us together.

At the end, the trip to the one of amazing destination in Indonesia become reality. The next 5 posts recite about our activities around Belitung island. With 13 friends, we started our trip on Friday noon. It takes only 50 mins to Hanandjoedin airport at Tanjung Pandan. From the map, Belitung island location is quite close, its upright of Jakarta.

Mie Belitung

As arrived in Belitung, we welcomed by bang Ito and his friend, very experience local guide that always explain every question with patient and humor. With no wasting time, he picked us up to taste the local cuisine, mie Belitung. Hmm, its yummy and its a very good start before we explore the city and watch the sunset on Tanjung Pendam beach, the most happening location in Tanjung Pandan.

Enjoy the sunset

Not too many people in Tanjung Pendam when we got there, but its look like good place for jalan-jalan sore or hanging with friends and family. Now its the the first time I stand my tripod to capture the moment as well as my friends do.

The beach here are very flat, the point of interest is only the sunset itself. The flair and light is nice, but the clouds was very thick, and again.. its too flat. I walked along the beach trying to find another interesting object until I founded the 2 big tress standing on the sea. Its amazing they can live there as if I'm not mistake its not a mangrove. There is some teory that told about why they can live there.., but for me its because he has friend.
