Parai Tenggiri Beach, Bangka Island

(4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Swim, sunbathe, and relax at Parai Tenggiri Beach. Don't be put off by the many boulders and rough, rocky points: behind the jagged edges lie excellent swimming spots with calm, shallow waters. A concrete boardwalk lines the edge of the beach, sitting just above the soft caramel-colored sand. Nearby resorts offer plenty of recreational activities, including banana boat rides, snorkeling, and diving. Nearby, a few public showers and bathrooms are available, but head to one of the resorts for nicer facilities (plus swimming pools and restaurants for additional cost). The beach is often dotted with friendly fisherman in colorful boats, happy to share stories about their beloved spot.

  • This beach is separated into two places. The left side beach belongs to Parai Beach Resort and Spa and we have to pay IDR 30.000 at the entrance. The right side beach is free of charge. I only visited the free of charge beach as I didn't have much time before going to the airport. For me, this free of charge beach is very excellent for photography with its wonderful white sands and white rocks. The sea looks calm. However, it is forbidden for guests to swim in this beach. This beach is one hour driving from the airport. And as far as I know, we have to rent a car to get there. Outside the beach area we can find little shops along the street selling local food. For me, this beach is very recommended to visit although you probably don't have much time in Pangkalpinang city.
  • very bad services. smelly places, dirty pool, f*ck. just have a good view of beach, thats it. Dont swim!
  • Pasir putihnya sangat indah, ombak tenang, overwhelming view above all. Time is lost here.
  • Beach side hotel, excellent view & ambience. Quiet & good privacy
  • One of my best beach I loved.
