Bintan is famous for its high-end luxurious resorts and world class golf courses, but did you know that Bintan is also home to many beautiful and exotic beaches?
Bintan is a beautiful island located as part of the Riau Archipelago in Indonesia. Its proximity to Singapore makes it famous among international tourists. Bintan is a great choice for an island getaway. Those who seek adventures in the water or fancy relaxing sunbathe on the sand, Bintan is the place to go.
Once you arrive at this exotic island, you will be surrounded by stunning white-sand beaches. Not only that, if you are more of a forest person, Bintan is full of tropical rainforests that store thrilling and exciting adventures.
However, in this article, we will give you a glimpse of Bintan’s best and most beautiful beaches. Get your sunscreen and diving gears ready as you are in on a brand new beach adventure.
Pristine and picture-perfect, Trikora Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Bintan among tourists and locals. It is located in the Lagoi region and about 45 kilometres east of Tanjungpinang city, making it relatively easy to reach.
Trikora Beach’s unique charms lie in its dazzling white shores and aquamarine waters, a tranquil and peaceful respite. Here, sunbathe on the warm sandy beach, play a game of volleyball or even snorkel in the crystalline waters!

Situated a mere 15-minute ferry ride from Trikora Beach, White Sands Island (or locally known as Pulau Beralas Pasir) is a private island named for its gleaming white sands and jewel-toned seas.
On this private island, guests will get to enjoy a myriad of exclusive activities such as beach volleyball, snorkelling, kayaking and diving. There are also resorts and villas on the island to house guests.

Lagoi Beach is located in the subdistrict at the northern tip of Bintan Island. Its majestic beach view rivals that of the ones in Bali or Lombok with an unblocked view of the horizon from which one can admire the rising and setting of the sun. Tourists can enjoy outdoor activities such as sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling, diving or simply walking along the coastline.
Lagoi Beach is also a short walk away from Plaza Lagoi so guests may swing by the many dining establishments there serving local delicacies such as seafood and traditional Indonesian cuisine.

If you are looking for a quiet beachside getaway on Bintan Island, why not check out Hamid Beach? Located on the north-western coast of Bintan, Hamid Beach sees fewer beach-goers than any of the other beaches on the island, making it the ideal spot for some serene downtime away from the buzz of a crowd. Its clear waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling in and we reckon that the best time to visit is just before sunset when you will be rewarded with a mesmerising, panoramic sunset view.

Another lesser-known beach on Bintan Island is the Sekera Beach. This beach features long stretches of shallow water which is great for a swim and even kayaking. Spending a day at this quiet spot also means being away from other tourists and locals for a relaxing escapade by the beach. With plenty of benches, playgrounds and restaurants dotting the area, visitors may also enjoy a picnic with family and loved ones amidst a beautiful ocean backdrop.
