Photographer's Note

Located in Java sea between South Sumatra and Kalimatan, Belitung Island is a hidden paradise, unspoiled, an island undoubtedly with the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in Indonesia still not exploited by tourism. What so unique about this scarcely populated island is, the granite boulders of various sizes - some as huge as 10m high scattered along the pure white sandy beaches with crystal clear turquoise blue water. You are totally close to nature. Unlike Bali or Lombok, Belitung beaches are still virgin and untouched..

Tanjung Kelayang is a hidden gem located on the north west, offers one of the most magnificent views of the island. The wide variety of beautiful granite boulders are so unique with some resemble small islets which are heaven to birdlife. At low tide more of these boulders are visible providing a spectacular view of the cove. A perfect location to watch a glorious sunset when the area becomes very tranquil as the light reflects off the calm waters.

Additional equipment used: Cokin Gradual Neutral Grey G1-P120, Octagon ND4 and tripod.
