I am planning a day trip to Bintan from Singapore. I would love to just spend some time on the beach.

If I arrive at Bintan Resorts, can I walk through one of the resorts to get to the beaches?

Or, should I arrive at Tanjungpinang and get a taxi to a beach from there?

1. Re: Beaches

Dear Carolyn,

My experience, each of resorts are located at North Bintan (Resort) Island area has excellent beach (can walk). You don't need get transportation (taxi, bus & etc) via TanjungPinang city to Bintan Resort (Lagoi).

The direct transportation (ferry - approximately 60 minutes) from Singapore Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Bintan Resort is available : https://www.brf.com.sg/

Tanjung Pinang is the main town Bintan island and the capital of Riau Islands province. Whereas you can find somethings like as traditional market, many seafood restaurant, local delicacies (wet kway teow, otak-otak, bak kut teh & etc), traditional or modern coffee shop & others. Generally the TanjungPinang's prices lower than Bintan (Lagoi) Resort area.

Hopefully you are enjoy at Bintan island .. bye.
