'An old lighthouse of Lengkuas Island' Aug 14, 2010
Lengkuas Island is a small island, situated in the north village of Tanjung Binga. The total is less than one hectare. On the island there are many islands around the granite rocks that can be reached simply by walking across the shallow sea with a depth of less than 1.5m. Granite stone structure are also unique and different from other places with a combination of white sandy beaches and trees. Sea water is really clear, you can clearly see the bottom of the sea including fish that swim in it. It is a pleasure to play in the sea or snorkeling.
One of the famous attractions of the Lengkuas Island is an old lighthouse, built by the Dutch since 1882. Each visitor is free to rise to the top of the lighthouse. It will be a little difficult because it requires extra energy, but do not worry about your efforts will not be in vain. Because when you reach the top of the lighthouse the Views from there of Lengkuas Island is so wonderful to just tell how absolutely beautiful, the island and its surroundings are.
I took some photos from the top of the lighthouse, so if you go up there, do not forget to bring a camera and let your photographs tell of its story. After making our way back down from the lighthouse, we then prepare to go snorkeling with our guide, who takes us to a quiet place close to the beach. must be careful here because lots of sea urchins with stinging spikes when you are not using fins.
There are only 3 people who live on this island and they are the keepers of the lighthouse. They are very friendly to each visitor. This place feels very relaxed, the wind was blowing very fresh, you can sunbathe and relax on the white sand surrounding the island under cover of coconut trees.
Just for information the best time to visit Lengkuas Island are the months from March to November,the ocean waves tend to be quieter, so you can enjoy boat trips, snorkeling and swimming in the crystal clear and calm waters.
