Trikora Beach Hotels

If you asked someone to describe a beach paradise, then they may well come up with something like Trikora Beach. It has a long stretch of powdery white sand, gentle clear blue seas, and tall swaying palm trees that frame the beach areas. Located on the east of the island, the area is a bit more relaxed and quieter than the touristy north Bintan, meaning it's better for those seeking a restful holiday.

Things to see

The long stretch of coast now known as Trikora Beach has always been a popular fishing spot. Although there are quite a few newer hotels near Trikora Beach, the area still has a traditional feel, and as you walk along the white sands you'll often see rustic boats in the water bringing in the catch of the day. Trikora Beach has straw roofed cafés and beach huts where you can enjoy some shade, and restaurants with terraces that look out over the ocean. A short drive away is the well-hidden Santa Maria Cave, a unique little shrine built by the Christian community. There's a grotto featuring a statue of the Virgin Mary, plus a rustic outdoor grotto with the stations of the cross, all surrounded by tall trees. This peaceful spot is a great place to spot local wildlife, from fruit bats to the occasional monkey swinging through the trees.

With picture perfect beaches and sunny weather, it's no surprise that tourists seeking a relaxing break look for hotels near Trikora Beach. The area has many large resorts with 3 to 4 stars, which mean you get affordable, comfortable accommodation close to the sea. Bintan Agro Beach Resort & Spa and Trikora Beach Club & Resort are highly recommended. You'll find that many hotels offer either rooms or villas, with the latter being ideal for family groups, and amenities can include air conditioning, free toiletries, free WiFi, and refrigerators stocked with free bottled water. Hotels that are on the seafront will often have cabanas or sun loungers set up for guests, and can arrange snorkelling or bike hire if you want to do more than lie on the beach.

Where to stay

Trikora Beach can be found in the Teluk Bakau area, on the east coast of Bintan. It's away from many of the larger, luxury resorts of the north, and is a laid back, fairly traditional area where fishing is still a big industry, and you'll see kelongs, wooden huts on stilts, over the water. The Teluk Bakaru area includes a couple of small islands off the coast, and is very popular for snorkelling and scuba diving. The unspoilt nature of the area means there's a lot of woodlands where you can take a stroll and spot native creatures hiding in the trees, and biking is popular around the area with some trails near the coast to follow.

How to get to Trikora Beach

Raja Haji Fisabilillah Airport is the island's only arrival point by air, and most of the arrivals to this tiny airport are from Jakarta, with the rest of the arrivals consisting of infrequent flights from nearby islands. The airport is about a 40 minute drive from Trikora Beach, and the vast majority of tourists pick up a taxi, due to the unreliable nature of public transport around Bintan. Many hotels near Trikora Beach also have a shuttle service, which you can request once you've booked your stay. Arriving via boat from Singapore is often the easiest option, with the crossing taking just 1 hour 45 minutes, and it's then a 75 minute drive to Trikora Beach.
