Sungai Bela Village, Kuala Indragiri District, Indragiri Hilir, Riau has a hidden tourist attraction.
This beach-style attraction, called Mabloe Reef beach, is located not far from the Floating river.
The beach, which still needs renovation and creativity, looks busy by beach lovers in the afternoon by taking advantage of holidays and low tide on the beach.
Sakaruddin, one of the local residents, admitted that in the future the Mabloe reef beach could become a typical and most popular tourist spot in Inhil, considering that this beach has a unique characteristic of sea sand and is surrounded by attractive mangrove plants and is worthy of being developed as a regional asset.
For him, although at present there are still many tasks and renovations that need to be carried out by the local village and the management of this beach, but he is sure that sooner or later this beach will become a serious tourist object for the solop beach in the island of Cawan, Mandah District, which was previously known to people.
“I see this beach is not much different from Solop beach which has arid sand and unique mangrove trees, hopefully the village and the government through the related service can continue to develop this reef beach so that tourism in inhil will increase again,” said Saka. every time he returns to his hometown in Sungai Bela Village, he always visits the beach.
Another visitor, Suhendri, admitted that he was very happy to enjoy the beauty of this beach after visiting the Mabloe reef beach, especially since this beach is not far from the village which only uses sea pompong and takes 5 -10 minutes to arrive at the location.
“We are proud that in our own village there is a beach tourism object, especially now that there have been many creativities made by the village together with local residents and now it has been visited by many residents, I hope this Mabloe Reef beach continues to grow and become a tourist attraction that is not only known at the national level. if necessary abroad, “hoped Hendri.
