Here are fact findings about Tanjung Tinggi:

Tanjung Tinggi is a beach placed among two peninsulas This is white sandy beach, and it is special because there are hundreds of granite boulders spreading mainly in both peninsula as well as in the beach and sea. The size of that granite starting from a meter cubic until several hundred meter cubic or bigger than a house. You can climb, walk and jump among the granites to see exclusive view from every angle from you stand. The shape of that boulders are also unique, some combination form a cave, the place for you to escape from small rain. They are placed on top of each other to form a nice object as you can clearly from the picture.

Those boulders stand on white sands. As you can see from pictures, you can walk on white sands besides boulders and clear sea water. White sands is everywhere along the beach. Kids will really like to play there. Since wave is not big, water is clear and sandy underwater surface, kids will really like to play in the water. You don't need to afraid of shark attack, because it's never happen in Belitung. The only thing that you sometimes must watch out is jelly fish, especially the big one.

Tanjung Tinggi also named Pelabuhan Bilik. It was fishery port for people from nearest village Keciput or Tanjung Tinggi. There are at least twenty traditional seafood restaurant in a shack along the bay. It is place for you to stretch your leg, drink coffee or order you lunch. They favourite menu is seafood. But, please don't expect you will get similar service likes restaurant in the shopping mall. They are just a people from village that make a simple restaurant. However, most people in here are warm to their entireguest, just likes most Indonesian people.

My suggestion, after you check-in in your hotel, let's come to Tanjung Tinggi. By doing so, you you will be able to enjoy the beach is a nice sunny weather, since it could be raining in the afternoon. If you arrive there, pick any traditional restaurant that you prefer. The menus in every restaurant are all the same, but I suggest to choose the one that already have guest to make sure the taste of the food is okay, in case you decide to take your lunch there. Otherwise, you just order drink or coconut fruit. The restaurant normally provides simple facility to take a shower and wash your body after swimming in the salt sea water.

Trust me, when you arrive there, you won't be able to wait to run into the beach and feel the soft of white sandy and waves that swap over the bay smoothly. You will walk along the beach, then due to your curiosity, you will approach granite boulders and start adventure to jump-in or walk away under the big one. The more you explore the angle of the beach, the more you can see beautiful panorama on this place. Total length of beach is approximately 1200m, but you can walk away far than that, because sands still white.

Well, this article may a bit too long for you to read about this place. But, After you comeback from there, you may spend more words than me to describe how beautiful this place. Tanjung Tinggi area is owned by Ranati group, an Indonesia company. It includes Lor In hotel for about 2km distance from central Tanjung Tinggi beach.
