    Red face Sea turtles on Bangka island

    All sea turtle species are threatened species, and near Sungailiat (which is the town between all the well known beaches of Bangka), is the sea turtle hatchery Tukik Babel, which is worth visiting if you are in the area. In the initiative Tukik Babel for rescuing 2 sea turtle species, you can witness how Green Turtles and Hawksbill Turtles are born (hatching) and raised for 2 months, until released into the open sea. You can also see some huge adult sea turtles, or get involved in releasing the small ones. This work is an important step for Bangka to become nature friendly, after being a mining island for decades.

    Babel Sea Turtle Hatchery

    located around 45 minutes by flying from Jakarta, this Bangka island is facing serious problems caused by tin mining. The water of all the beaches around this island looks milk. This is a place where you can learn about the turtle and play in the beach in the same place. The beach it self is very clean.


    Bangka is the biggest island in Bangka-Belitung province. This province, located to the east of Sumatra, is a rather new one but already making waves in term of tourism. The province accelerates its effort to promote its tourism industry. Indeed, this area has a lot of wonderful natural beauties, including wonderful beaches in Bangka Island.


    Bangka is a place filled with many beautiful places. The beaches here are characterized by many granite rocks, some are really huge. Here are some of the best beaches in Bangka, the biggest island in Bangka-Belitung Province.
