Marquez Beach (Pantai Marquez)

Dabo Singkep, Lingga, Riau Indonesia

Beaches are lovely places to go to especially when one needs a break from keeping it sane under heavy pressure in a competitive environment under a bad toxic cloud of office politics. Yes, the rat race certainly isn’t fun and researchers in labs have often proven that stress kills. So, take a break, book your tickets, and head on down to Singkep Island in the Lingga Regency of the Riau Archipelago in Indonesia.

There are quite a few beaches in Singkep Island. One of them is Marquez Beach or Pantai Marquez as it is called in the local Indonesian language. Marquez Beach is a long sandy beach which is rather quiet. Perhaps the reason for such quietness is that Singkep Island is not a heavily populated island.

Marquez Beach is a beautiful beach with chalets available should one decides to spend a couple of days here. Note that the accommodation available here are rather basic. No 5 star hotels.  It is one of those places to go to for a relaxation where the sea breeze blows away all these burdens that one brings along from back home, and the sounds of the sea (waves) drowns away the stress in one’s mind.

Turtle Lovers

There is a small turtle conservation centre here on Marquez Beach where visitors can go to to see sea turtles. Visitors are not allowed to touch them to ensure that he turtles remain healthy. During our visit we were lucky enough to witness the release of sea turtles (hatchlings) back into the sea. It was a nice and fulfilling experience.
