Epicure (Indonesia) - - TRAVEL FEATURE -

Get­ting there

From Sin­ga­pore, there’s Tanah Merah Ferry Ter­mi­nal (15 min­utes by car from Changi Air­port). Board the reg­u­lar ferry ser­vice to ar­rive at Ban­dar Ben­tan Te­lani (BBT) Ferry Ter­mi­nal in 60 min­utes. Larger groups can ar­range for a pri­vate char­ter with Bin­tan Re­sort Fer­ries. Those com­ing from In­done­sia can opt for do­mes­tic flights to Raja Haji Fis­abilil­lah Air­port or fer­ries from Batam to ei­ther Bin­tan Re­sorts or Tan­jung Pi­nang. For pri­vate yachts (up to 25 me­tres in length), there are ma­rina pon­toons at BBT Ferry Ter­mi­nal.

Get­ting around the is­land

There are shut­tle buses trans­port­ing visi­tors be­tween BBT Ferry Ter­mi­nal and re­sorts, Plaza Lagoi or Pu­jasera. For a more tai­lored itin­er­ary, we rec­om­mend taxis or car rentals.

The right sea­son

The trop­i­cal cli­mate makes it a great hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion al­lyear round. Beach-go­ers will par­tic­u­larly en­joy the dry sea­son be­tween March and Oc­to­ber. For a fruit­ful dive, plan trips be­tween Novem­ber and April.
