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. Several small huts also line the outskirts of the beach together with simple stalls selling fresh food and cool beverages.

Go for a dip in the cool water, go jogging, or just play in the sand. Climb up one of the many rocky boulders for absolutely no reason other than because it’s there. Revel in the picturesque surroundings of Bangka and Belitung islands and enjoy the fresh air. Remember to bring your camera to keep the beauty of the islands forever immortalized. Sunrise is the time when many flock to the beach to capture the spectacle of the sun’s golden rays piercing through the clouds and cascading across the crystal waters. But don’t expect that you need to be a professional photographer to enjoy these moments. Simply show up and enjoy the experience.
