Pulau Batu Berlayar, Belitung Island

While island hopping in Belitung, stop by the scenic Pulau Batu Berlayar to admire its large granite boulders and relax on the powdery white sand. Named "Sailing Rock Island" because its rocks appear to be "sailing" on the water, this peaceful spot remains a great place for a picnic while admiring the view of the surrounding islands. The clear blue water is suitable for snorkeling, and you can find seashells and starfish scattered on the sand. Bring your camera for some great photos of the giant rocks and pristine waters.

  • Beautiful place, the sea water is turquoise and blue, with the part closest to the sand completely transparent. The rock itself does not necessarily look that much like a sail... but still an incredible place to take beautiful pictures. Definitely a must visit if you are doing an island hop at this part of Belitung.
  • Good spot for taking pictures and selfies. Located not too far from the main island. Many tourists come here for taking pictures. The rock formations are look like formation of sails therefore they named it Pulau Batu Berlayar (the island of sailing rocks). Watch out for the sharp edges on the rock if you're taking pictures here, it's razor sharp.
  • Salah satu destinasi hopping island. Anda akan melihat batu granit yang menjulang tinggi seperti layar terkembang. Pemandangan yang bagus
  • One of the best photo spot on Tanjung Kelayan beach
  • Better go here on weekday when less people around. To ultimately enjoy the view and tranquality. Beautiful rock formation and snorkeling spot
