Body Board and Kayaking Bintan, Indonesia

Ride the Waves

How to get there: SIngapore to Bintan, Indonesia

From Singapore's Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal we took the Bintan Ferries Resort and traveled the sea for 1 hour and 45 mins. to the Bintan Island. It is a must to be there 1 hour and a half before the departure time to avoid the same incident like ours. We will be just staying for sure inside the resort but in case we need cash it's better to prepared, good thing inside the ferry there's a money changer. 1 SGD=7,885.54 IDR (Indonesian Rupiah)

I can't stay put , I need to go somewhere and I always have this craving, the need to see the beach. Things were going according to plan because the nearest place I know is just less than 2 hours away from Singapore. I've heard from a friend how beautiful the island is with it's white sand beaches and all the fun activities. 
Fun means getting wild with the waves. I've always wanted to surf but I don't have the guts to hear the rush of the waters and be engulf inside the mystical silence of the water. Body Board was a good way to unleash this fear that I have. It's a wide board which allows you to float in the water. We were a bit late to catch the big waves so the instructor wasn't really able to teach us. We were just told to lie flat on our stomachs, keep floating and paddle with our hands and we're good to go. It really wasn't that hard except for the part that you have to maintain your balance especially when a wave comes in.

The sunset was spectacular and looking at it in the horizon was one of a kind. The scenery seemed to never end, it's has a mysterious aura; like an ancient gathering where people waited for miracles, where worshippers offers something on the table before the sun hides away or a warrior saying goodbye. My friend was game on capturing our silly antics as we do our stunts by the sunset. We were falling off our boards and splashing water around. It was fun to unwind and forget about your worries in a few days.
