City break in Batam Island. Active leisure ideas for Batam Island - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Batam There are lots of ways to do something really active on Batam Island. For instance, if you want to try yourself in water skiing, then go to CableSki Park. Besides, you can also try surfing or play tennis, basketball, or mahjong. And you can have a nice meal in a local café after good activities. You can also go to a park and spend there a whole day. Those who enjoy tranquil activities could play golf in one of the local golf clubs (e.g. Indah Puri Golf Resort, Tamarin Santana Golf Club). In case you’ve never played this game before, there are trainers who are always ready to help.
Even though Batam Island became an extremely attractive tourist destination only a few decays ago, it’s already can be considered as a perfect place for holidays with children. In some … Open
Beginners in surfing would definitely enjoy the Batam WakePark where you can learn some tricks and how to ride a board with a motorboat. Cabana Club is a must-visit for the extreme-lovers. The club offers a great variety of activities: banana boat rides, water skiing, climbing, snorkeling, Jeeping, sea kayaking, etc. Moreover, you can also try literal soaring above the water with a special parachute which is attached to a motorboat or with a jet board (remember that it’s pretty hard to balance on it).
If fishing is your favorite activity, then you won’t be bored on Batam Island. The locals had been earning money by hunting, and now they can share their ancestors’ wisdom with tourists. So, you can buy everything you need for fishing in the Toko Hobi Kita, and then go to the Balerang Fishing to ask for an instructor and a boat. Anyway, you can also simply try it on the sea coast. Fishing in the open sea is always much more satisfying, don’t you agree? One more activity you can do is to rent a boat and go to one of the neighboring islands. Abeng Island, for example, is famous for its extending deserted beaches which are perfect for snorkeling. You would like Putri Island for its pure nature; Belakang Padang Island is a perfect place if you want to take a rest from all those crowds of people on Batam Island. Copyright

Nature-lovers would really enjoy the lotus growing centre in the Taman Kolam Sekupang. There are hundreds and hundreds of kinds of this marvelous but whimsy flower. But if you’d really like to see all the plants which grow in the island, you have to visit the Batam Botanical Garden. Dozens of different kinds of local flora growing on the territory of the garden. You can also simply walk around the island and enjoy landscapes. There are several routes of different level of difficulty: from basic walks from one village to another to the actual one-day-trips or longer. You can also rent a car or a scooter if you want to.
Batam The island is full of diverse beaches. If you don’t want to think about where to go to just sunbathing and swimming, then Melayu Beach is a perfect option. There are no loungers or parasols there, but on the other hand, it’s also clean and not overcrowded. The beach is also appropriate for those who are not good at swimming, as water there is not deep and there is also a gentle descent into it. Another beach is Viovio Beach. There is perfect white sand, lots of summer houses where you can just relax and have some snacks. Fishermen prefer Nongsa Beach. There there are tremendously beautiful landscapes which are even better in the sunset.
Indonesians are quite a contradictory nation. On Batam Island, you could either be surrounded by friendly people who are always ready to help, or you could collide with an aggressive youth … Open
Marina Beach is a perfect beach for people who value seclusion and silence. Bale Bale Beach is famous for the mangrove trees growing just near the water. Those who have a family vacation should definitely come to Ocarina Beach, as there are dozens of various attractions for kids while grownups could enjoy magnificent sunsets standing on a walkway just over the ocean. If you do snorkeling, then Dangas Beach is just for you. In case if you want to somehow spend your time to only in the day- but also in the nighttime, then go to the island’s eponymous capital. There is a bunch of bars and nightclubs on the seacoast in Batam. Divers and all those who’d like to dive in the island surroundings should also go there.
