I must say that I'm very disappointed in my experience. There are numerous changes in policies: 1. Changes the car from big car to medium car, without any compasation. 2. Late pick up to the airport. 3. Didn't provide fins as requested. Though it has already included in the package. 4. The tour agency didn't pick up our phones for... More

Well I did enjoy overall destination to Belitung with my family during weekend. They have really clean and fascinating beach and small island, white sands and great view. I suggest if you go for first time, better hire a tour guide to accompanying you during all day, there are no taxi, so you have to rent a car. You can... More

The island Belitong is 43 minutes away from Jakarta, capital city of Indonesia. On day one we had breakfast with the famous local noodles Ahiyu. Then we did island hoping. One of the beautiful islands was Langkuas Island. It has a lighthouse & natural pool called Kolam Bidadari (Angel pool). The pool is surrounded by big rocks. The other landmark... More

Very refreshing and good for snorkeling enthusiast. Still untouched and not touristy. I bet soon will be more crowded. Totally recommended for family holiday.

Not so vulgar and crowded as most popular tourist spots. You can enjoy strolling in one of the white sand beach, enjoying the crystal clear water, eating the tasty local dishes.

Belitung Island is just a virgin island! It is untouched and not really out there yet! It's a peaceful place with no traffic and very little amount of public poverty (no street kids). The island brings you back to a world from the past. Clean and beautiful oceans!
