Tanjung Kalian Beach

Tanjung Kalian Beach is a white sandy beach with many histories of the Dutch occupation and World War II periods. One of them is a white lighthouse, which was built by the Dutch in 1826 and has 199 steps to reach the top. Visitors will be able to see beautiful views of the beach and its surroundings from the top of the lighthouse, such as the view of Muntok Harbour activities, which is also located on Tanjung Kalian Beach. It costs you Rp. 2,500/person to climb up the lighthouse. You will easily find this 60 meter lighthouse when you enter Tanjung Kalian Beach.

Not far from the lighthouse, there is a monument to commemorate the Australian nurses who were deployed during the World War II. Three Dutch and British wrecks, which were torpedoed by Japanese warships during this world war moment (16 February 1942) at one edge of the beach become one of the attractions here.
