Anyone who watched Laskar Pelangi Movie (= Warriors of Rainbow, an Indonesian Box Office Movie based on a novel with the same title by Adrea Hirata),  definitely would be amazed by the beauty of Belitung Island.

Tanjung Tinggi Beach was the filming location of Laskar Pelangi Movie.  The beach is famous for its unique formation and shape of stones.  They are not man made but natural, not black rocks but granites in various colors. The water was calm and clear, so clear that we could see the under water.  Small waves.  Smooth white sands.  What a beautiful  beach.

Still drizzling when we arrived and the stones were slippery.  However,  we managed to take some pictures in the middle of spitting rain. My friend brought a pink umbrella (so girly…).  Lately,  the weather could change to hot and sunny at any time.  That umbrella would still be useful.

Do you see the whale shape of granite ? Elephant and Hipo? Giant tear drop and ball?
