Madu Tiga Beach
Adventures In The Riau; By Escapy Travel Magazine
Sun, sand, and sea; beaches are nice places to go to to have fun or to just sit back and relax. Bintan Island is blessed with some nice beaches. During my trip to Bintan Island I visited one of these beaches at a place called Tanjung Pinang. This here is the Madu Tiga Beach. Madu Tiga simply translates to ‘three honeys’ in English. I have no idea what it means. Could perhaps mean a place to enjoy one’s third honeymoon, or maybe even a threesome. Whatever it may mean; Madu Tiga Beach is a nice beach with a stretch of rather long sandy beach and inviting clear sea water.

The beach here is really quite nice and relaxing. Perhaps one can call this place a sandy rejuvenation area. Dotted with a few cabanas and deckchairs (also known as beach chairs), the beach here is really inviting. Who wouldn’t enjoy splashing about in a sea of clear water (clear but not crystal clear) on a windy sunny day? That perhaps is the main reason to go to the beach.
Madu Tiga Beach is not just about having fun in the sea and building sandcastles (or combing the beach for shells). It is a good place to sit back and relax as the sounds of the waves play a hypnotic tune carrying your mind to another place where you forget where you are, the race that you run daily, and perhaps even your name. Well, if all of a sudden you find that you cannot remember your name it could also mean something else and my recommendation is to quickly go see a doctor.

Just off the beach are what look like houses built on stilts. I am not sure if they are houses. Perhaps a better term to use for these structures would be huts. It certainly will be nice to be able to visit one of these huts especially to learn what they really are. They could be fishing huts where local fishermen head to to catch their daily meal, or they could be chalets on water that visitors could rent. Being an angler I can only imagine the fun that I could have fishing from one of them. Perhaps I will find out on my next visit.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to spend a few days relaxing here at the Madu Tiga Beach? Madu Tiga Beach And Resort has chalets that one can rent to enjoy a few days on this piece of paradise. These chalets are made of bamboo and wood; a perfect blend to such a lovely place. They are air-conditioned too, a much needed appliance especially on hot and humid days.
Chalets are available should one decide to spend a few days here.
Being on the beach does not only mean relaxation, sea, sun, and sand. Madu Tiga Beach And Resort has a restaurant and bar to “chill-out” at and to savour some of the delicious local delights. Should one suddenly feel the urge to work or to reconnect to cyberspace, WiFi is provided for free at the lobby. The resort also provides airport shuttle services at a fee.
