The beautiful island of Bintan is a part of Indonesia’s Riau Islands in the South China Sea. The archipelago is just a short cruise away from Singapore, making this a very popular day trip for people visiting Singapore. Bintan’s beautiful beaches deserve more than just one day, though…
The Lagoi Area on the Northern coastline is perhaps the brightest jewel of the island. Clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are lined by lush tropical rainforests. There’s a plethora of luxury resorts on the coast but the beaches feel delightfully wild and natural.
The side effects of being so close to a major port can unfortunately be seen from time to time – tar from the merchant ships traveling to and from Singapore finds its way to the sand and can leave black marks on your feet for a while. But getting tarred (and feathered) is a small price to pay for paradise!
Bintan is the perfect place for a relaxing beach getaway
