There is so little to do in Tanjung Pinang that a trip to this island was the highlight of a weekend. The boat ride back and forth is interesting and only Rp6000 each way. The island holds a well-off village, a number of restaurants, a mosque and a few crafts sellers. The restaurant right at the end of the ferry terminal serves excellent fresh fish; we had it barbequed, with white rice, cucumber slices and iced tea (Rp130,000 for two). You can see the bay from your table, although there is lots of trash in the water basically at your feet.
