Parai Tenggiri Beach, Bangka Island

4.2
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Bangka Island
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.

  • About 1.5 hours drive from the center of the base of the Pinang towards Sungaliat, we arrived and went into the area of Parai Beach Resort. We just follow the Guide from gmaps and it was very helpful though indeed the streets in Bangka is not so complicated only very less plank signposts. To the streets still seamlessly to the small roads in the Interior. Because we chose the entry of the resort, then we pay the entrance fee to 25 thousand dollars per person (it looks like the price of weekend). With the price of it you got a drinks packaging box per person. Another advantage that we get is coastal scenery Parai. White sand and rocks along the shore of big size adds to its beauty. One of our good fortune that day was very sunny skies. This makes his increasingly clear sea views with a very beautiful blue water. From the beach resort also has a jetti running to the sea makes us have the option of taking a photo of the beach from jetti.

  • The beaches are pretty nice .... clean but worn entry fee £ 25 k Views and the beach is quite beautiful ... clean enough and we have free use of the indoor swimming pool is also located within the resort. the beach is fairly well kept ... but unfortunately not in place to provide adequate rinse. There is now, however I think it's still minimal once

  • The Beach so clean...and so quiet even i was think "are they set up this beach for our honeymoon??" Actually this place is Awesome!!!!!
  • Private owned beach on a resort, but people can still go to the beach without staying at the resort. It's a nice little beach.
  • Best place. Best beach. Best view. Amazing place. Im love that place.
  • I was told by our driver that Pantai Parai Tenggiri is the best beach in Bangka that has the most expensive cover charge. As soon as my friend and I got there after about an hours' drive from our hotel, we found out that the beach was part of a resort hotel. We were asked to pay an entry fee of IDR 25,000.00 and was given a voucher for a 'teh botol' in a 200-250 ml pack. It was the most expensive 'teh botol' in our lives! The view was not as we expected, even though it was slightly better than the beaches we visited. To make our monies worth, we took lots of photos before leaving the area. The hotel has a swimming pool for adults and kids. I'm unsure if you have to pay extra. There was live entertainment at the restaurant when we strolled along the beach, which was ok lah. If you have time to kill, it doesn't hurt to pay a visit. However, I'd rather hop on a plane to Belitung Island. Their beaches will mezmerize you. Guaranteed.
  • White sand and clear water, calm with tiny waves. Good spot to take small children swimming.
