Of the many beaches that surround Bangka Island’s coast, the city of Sungailiat boasts the largest collection of beaches, and some of the most unique, not found anywhere else on the island. One such beach is the beautiful Pantai Rambak or Rambak Beach.
Not too far from the center of Sungailiat, Rambak Beach perfectly combines wide stretches of soft wide sand which merge seamlessly into the sparkling turquoise water of Kalimata Strait. Huge granite rocks protrude from the water in seeming contradiction to the beach’s calm appearance. A clear, blue sky extends above the horizon, decorated sporadically with fluffy white clouds.
The outer edge of the beach is carpeted in grass and shaded leafy trees. Several small huts also line the outskirts of the beach together with simple stalls selling fresh food and cool beverages.
The rocky bay on the northern end of the beach is one of the prime attractions leaving visitors wondering how such large boulders made their way to this beach. Located on the East Coast of the island, Rambak Beach is a perfect place to spend the wee hours of the early morning to appreciate the magnificence of sunrise across the waters.
