The name Nasik Strait, a strait that is separate from Belitung Island. In this strait, we can commemorate the struggle of the people of the Nasik Strait who were so heroic in driving away from the invaders when they entered this 40 square km area.
To reach this strait, you have to cross by boat for 30 minutes from the Penggantongan area.
During the trip to the Nasik Strait, you will be presented with views of the island and mountains, one of which is Sebongkok Island which is right next to the strait with the beautiful backdrop of Mount Petaling.
After traveling for 30 minutes, we will arrive at Tanjung Nyato Harbor. From this port, we can explore 4 villages located in the Strait, which is inhabited by around 2600 people.
Two of them are Selat Nasik Village and Gual Village.
We can also feel the hospitality of the people of the Nasik Strait when we set foot here. The friendly smiles from local residents will welcome us when entering this area.
There are 4 destinations that we can visit on this strait.
First, the Mendanau People’s Struggle Monument 1945.
Here we can commemorate the heroic struggle of the people of the Nasik Strait in expelling invaders who had entered this area.
Second, from this monument, we can continue to Pasir Panjang Beach.
To reach this beach we have to go through a winding road with forest views on the right and left of the road. On this beach, we are presented with a beach view complete with a Tanjung Lancur lighthouse that can be seen from a distance.
The third-place we can visit in this strait is the Nasik Strait Traditional House.
The traditional house here is different from the traditional Belitung house. The difference lies in the absence of a front yard and a connecting booth between the main room and kitchen. Finally, you can also visit the Tanjung Lancur Lighthouse in Gual Village.
There is one thing that is unique in the Nasik Strait, namely the activities in the village usually take place at night.
In the Strait with an area of 40 square kilometers, electricity only started to turn on when it was 4:00 p.m, local time.
