Bintan Island is the largest of the Riau archipelago’s 3,200 islands and has a coastline that stretches for about 105 km. That whole length has a combination of pristine beaches, mangrove forests and old towns and villages where an eclectic mix of different cultures and ethnicities have thrived for centuries.

A trip to Bintan’s main towns – Tanjung Pinang and Tanjung Uban – lets you learn more about the island’s people and local culture. Further beyond the coast, trek through a tropical forest up to the archipelago’s tallest peak for breathtaking panoramas. Bintan has a collection of luxurious 5-star resorts that make great bases for your trip to this tropical island. Their dining venues also offer some of the island’s finest sunset and seafood experiences.
