Bangka Island offers great white sand beaches with crystal clear water and beautiful views. There are also a few supporting facilities in some beaches. The good thing here is most of the beautiful beaches stay as public beaches, in other word it’s free.

Public beaches in Bangka Island are mostly visited by local residents in the late afternoon on weekdays or on weekends – there will be more people on weekends. While some people might just hang around the beaches, other might go for swim (often you will see them wearing their clothes while swimming or playing in the water). Seeing people lying on a beach is not a common thing here in the island, and women in bikinis are also uncommon views.

Most beaches in Bangka are not reachable by angkot (see transportation section for more information on them). Therefore, you will probably need to go by private transportation or to rent a car.

Pasir Padi Beach

Pantai Pasir Padi
Pasir Padi Beach streches about 300 meter long, and is located in the city of Pangkal Pinang. The beach is mostly visited by the locals, especially on weekends. Here, visitors can go swimming or even watch the action of young local people racing on their motorbikes (might not be legal but it does happen sometimes). Some warungs, restaurants, toilets, washing rooms are easily found along the beach. Drinks, such as 600 milliliter bottle of mineral water can be purchased in some warungs at a cost of around Rp. 5,000. Unfortunately, this beach cannot be accessed by public transportation despite its proximity to downtown (approximately about 7 kilometers from Pangkalpinang).
