The World's Most Disgusting Beach
Mar 2020
We arrived in Bintan after a great ferry boat ride from Singapore yesterday morning. The weather was perfect, and we quickly organized a really nice taxi ride to Trikora Beach. We stopped for breakfast at the Madu Tiga beach and resort for breakfast. The food and service were wonderful. The staff were friendly and very, very welcoming. Everything looked like we were in for a very pleasant day trip. Boy were we wrong!!! By 11:00am, the tide started to go out, and within 90 minutes had receded by more than 75 meters and revealed a beach choked with plastic, garbage and refuse. In my 40+ years of international travel, I have never seen such a shocking abuse of nature. For as far as the eye could see, along a strip of white , tropical sand beach coast, was hundreds of meters of garbage and abandoned beach resorts. The local population and the local government did not seem to care that what should be a dream spot of Instagram photo locations had been reduced to oil soaked sand carpeted by tens of thousands of empty plastic bottles, shopping bags stuck to tree limbs, beer bottles, human waste and foam containers. A true ecological disaster. Why is this not being addressed? Why would the local population, who live from tourism, not clean this beach? Adding to all of this was mother nature. Low tied starts before noon and only returns to high tide in early evening. This means that swimming during the day is near impossible, as there is no water deeper than the top of your foot for at least 200+ meters from the beach front. Trikora beach, Bintan Island, Indonesia, is an international shame. If you come here, do so with cleaning up in mind. Bring tens of thousand of bags to take away all of the garbage that covers every square millimeter of what should be a world class destination.

Beautiful beach but be careful in the sea!
Mar 2019
Trikora is a beautiful, peaceful beach, but be careful when swimming there. The waves can be big due to strong winds and also riptides towards the south end of the beach. There have been a number of drowning incidents involving tourists there over the last few year and unfortunately I witnessed one whilst there.

Breezy white sandy beach that needs a clean up
Dec 2019 • Family
It was quite a ride from Lagoi to Trikora. It's a decent beach with lots of locals. I think the local authorities need to clean it as there were a lot of trash from the sea

Beautiful, relaxed and charming hotel in Bintan
Dec 2019
Stayed in Bintan at Trikora Beach for 2 nights while on a business trip in Singapore. Exactly what I wanted. Away from the crowds and the big fancy resorts, very well designed with simple and beautiful natural material. Spacious rooms. Super friendly staff. Beautiful pool. Great meal. Hotels organises trips from an to the ferry (about 1h), whichever one you take. In short, this was a fabulous way to relax for a weekend after a busy week!

Beautiful, calm hotel in Bintan
Sep 2019 • Family
So it’s Bintan, and there’s not much to do.
Trikora is perfect for 2 nights out of Singapore:
- nice, clean and empty beach
- spacious bungalows with wooden flooring. Cold enough during the day.
- lots of space between bungalows and a very well kept garden
- food is unusually good for a hotel if this class (Tom yam, black pepper squid and crepe Suzette are particularly good)

Trikora Treat
Aug 2019 • Couples
A piece of Indonesian paradise. This beach area is truly spectacular and benefits from an unspoilt location on Bintans East Coast.

Head here for a day trip to enjoy beautiful coastal walks and scenery. Day out with my wife and scooter saw me park up at Mutiara Beach Club.

Lovely quiet resort with a laid back feel. Great base to leave the bike and belongings before returning for wood fire pizza, drinks and a spot of sunbathing.

A pleasure and nice change from the jig corporate resorts.

We stop by one of the resort and paid IDR 10,000 at parking place and can enjoy this beach. Ordered coconut that was around IDR25,000 each. The beach was clean and not crowded.
