Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Lengkuas Island located in the waters of the Belitung Island, and is about 30 minutes away by boat from Tanjung Kelayang beach or Tanjung Binga in District Sijuk, Belitung.In Lengkuas Island there is Lighthouse, built by Dutch colonial in 1882 and still actively working for marine navigation. Visitors must wash feet with fresh water before entering the lighthouse buildings constructed of steel, because the sea water can cause rust on the building. From the lighthouse, you can see beauty of the white sandy beaches on the island with giant granite rocks and clear sea water greenish.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

the island can be reached by boats departing from tanjung kelayang beach. The journey will take about 30 minutes and the sights during the trip itself are perfect, untouched white sands, clear transparent blue water, calming rocks. I almost cannot see any disturbing small spot on my 360degrees view. It is heaven.
You can ask to boatmen to stop by at several small islands which located everywhere during your trip to take some beautiful photos. They also can assist you to snorkeling spots.
The lengkuas island itself occupied by 3 lighthouse staff. Like its neighbours, it has white sand and transparent beach. You can buy coffee and several supermarket-like packed snacks there, and you can also go up the lighthouse to see the beautiful scenery. As clean water is rare on the island, just use water at the beach if you need to clean yourself. Also, you can do some small charity by bringing clean water from mainland to these men.
As boats are privately hired boats, i suggest to travel to this island in a group to make it cheaper. The rental prices are reasonable, and usually include hotel/airport pickup and transfer service.

“beach sand and rocks!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

belitung island also known as "negeri laskar pelangi" is one of the beautiful place in indonesia. Personally i want to go to this island because I'm a huge fan of best seller novel and film "Laskar pelangi". I want to see the actual places that have been told in the novel, and also see the beautiful scenery that i saw in movie. I highly recommend to use travel agency while you in belitung, because public transportation only operated till noon and i hardly can't find place to rent a car.
I took tour that brought me to lengkuas island, kalayang island, and other island around. all i can say about the view is Extremely beautiful. It's breathtaking! all the beaches not crowded so you can have a privacy, the water is very clean, white sands, very very great view! you can also do snorkeling here and the coral nice too. You must go up the lighthouse and you can see great view from there. one of the main feature on beach are lots of large rocks! awesome view!

“Exotic Island”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The beach is very clean and the waves are children friendly even for baby but the location is quite far from the port. Do not recommend you to go there during rainy season as the waves can be 2 meters long or even higher.

“Beautiful rocks at Lengkuas Island”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

This is my first time visiting Belitung islands. My friend ask me to go to Lengkuas island. I really love the view especially the large rocks across the shores. It is a very nice place and I'm planning to visit this island again with my family.
