Lengkuas is a small island located near Tanjung Binga, the Fishery Village of Belitung regency. It is one of the famous tourist destinations and people usually go there for recreation.

Lengkuas Island is only one hectare in size. There are granite boulders in various shapes that look like strange creatures, which can be reached by walking through the one meter shallow water. The granite boulders are so unique that you can hardly find in other places.

At the time you set foot on the harbor of the small island, you’ll see a Chinese style gate. On the right of the gate, there’s a gazebo with table and chairs.

Visitors can walk on stone steps that lead them to the top of the hill, where there’s a white pavilion-like building with mosquito net.
