Sunset in a fishing village

After several days break, let’s continue with pictures that I got when I visited Belitong. So far, I’ve already up-loaded the pictures of Batu Belayar Islets as well as beaches of Tanjong Pandan, Tanjong Tinggi, Tanjong Kelayang, Burong Mandi and Serdang, each with their own uniqueness. This time is the turn of another place which also bear the name Tanjong. It is actually a traditional village inhabited mainly of fishermen came from Sulawesi. The village is known as Tanjong Binga.

Tanjong Binga is located at Belitong’s north coast, approximately 22 kilometers to the north of Tanjong Pandan. It is, however, very close to Tanjong Tinggi. Although the village is a traditional village, the houses along the shore are looked relatively modern. Almost all have their own simple pier to tie up the boats that the inhabitants used to catch sea water fishes.

Formerly there were two wooden wharfs which were stretched 100 meters long to the sea. Now there are another two wharfs been built in the place to replace the old ones. The new wharfs are made of stone. Travelers can still find the old wharfs, since those two wooden wharfs are still being used by the local fishermen.

At that time, I visited Tanjong Binga in a cloudy late afternoon, hoping that I could be a witness of a nice sunset, because I saw that the cloud was hanging pretty high and the horizon was quite clear. When I entered the village, Tanjong Binga was quite empty and looked deserted, except for some children playing around the pier.

And . . . here are the results of my visit to Tanjong Binga  🙂
