Belitung really is the tropical paradise of your dreams. From its long white sandy beaches lined with coconut palms swaying in the warm waters of the South China Sea. Islands fringed with healthy incredibly varied coral reefs and granite monoliths . The promise of a tropical paradise comes true, but that’s not all there is to Belitung.
The quint Dutch built downtown still has largely never been changed, the people are genuinely friendly, smiling and helpful and there is little traffic on the well built road ways. Hundreds of just off shore islands are waiting to be discovered in the turquoise seas and boat tours are much cheaper then any of more discovered places of the world. Crime is very rare and you can walk anywhere without a worry at all. Fresh fish is easy to find and Belitung cuisine is quite tasty.
The rainy season is short and most days are sunny with a slight breeze. Jungle walks searching for Tarsier and mouse deer make even the inland areas something to discover. Even though it has million dollar views and beaches, due to the fact it only recently upgraded its airport Belitung is still a bargain. The Rock and Wreck Resort is on right on the beach in Tanjung Kelayang, Belitungs most iconic beach with stunning views and a fantastic white sand beach. So don’t wait it will not always be this pristine book your trip soon you will be glad you did.
