Overview

Pulau Pasir is about 45 minutes away by boat from Tanjung Kelayang beach, off Belitung Island. This island is special because during low tide in the morning, it will appear as a sandy island with nothing else on it. Come in the afternoon, when tide rises, it submerges. It is a firm favorite amongst island-hoppers.

This really is such as fun place to visit. The so called "sand island" is actually a sandbank in the sea that is either covered with water and jutting out of the sea. But even when submerged, the water is crystal clear and the sand...More

It's a lament that I didn't get a picture like I was in the middle of the sea and didn't spot any starfishes ): A beautiful shoal though, and typically disappears when it's high tide. PS: ask a friend to take a picture from the...More

We can visit this island if only the water is shallow. We also can find starfish here. I love this island because it has a beautiful scenery, turquoise water, and small waves.

A place for you to take picture and be prepared to get abit wet as the boat cant dock to near the beach and you are practically walking on the sea

You don't need go to other countries, Indonesia have so many beautiful place to visit, this's one of them. You only can visit this island in the morning, the water super clear and you can take a picture with starfish.

Stopped by on this spot on my way to Lengkuas island! Not real island actually, but tidal flat. I came in when water was so shallow so it felt like owning your private island. Lol. Orange to red starfishes scattered around, as some visitors took...More

This island is tiny, only consists of sand and dissapears in the afternoon because the water is up already. This is the island where you can take pictures with starfishes, but somebody needs to snorkel down to grab them. Because after visitors leave the island...More
