Trikora Beach, Riau.

19 November 2010 1,290 views No Comment

On the Bintan island, Riau Islands Province, there are many interesting attractions: natural, culture, historical and even religion tourism. One of them is Trikora beach. This beach is located in Malang Rapat village, Gunung Kijang district, about 45 kilometers east of Tanjungpinang. To reach the location , is relatively easy from Tanjungpinang because the road is already paved. The road from Tanjungpinang to Bintan regency borders can be filled by three to four rows of cars. However, starting from the border of Gunung Kijang to Trikora Beach the road become narrowed and only enough for two lanes of vehicles only. For the record, there is no public transport serving the route to Trikora beach. So, if you’re going to the beach, you have to use your own vehicle or rent one.

This 25 kilometers long beach really has a beautiful view. Thousands of coconut tress and mangroves are covering the road along the white sandy beach. In addition, there are also large rocks around the coast that add to the beauty of the beach. The rocks were often used by visitors for sunbathing or fishing.

In some parts of the coast there are many shops selling drinks, food and small huts as a lodging place. In front of those shops and huts can be seen many small-uninhabited islands. Meanwhile, in the middle of the sea there are many Kelong made of wood with thatched leaf roof, which serves as a tool to catch small fishes.

Trikora beach is not less beautiful than the Bintan Beach Resort, which became an international-class tourism area in Lagoi, North Bintan (about 40 kilometers from Trikora beach). But since its management is still a “traditional” one, the beach until now only visited by people originating from the island of Bintan and surrounding areas only.
