What : A beach with calm ocean waves and nice breeze in the morning or afternoon. Very local place with minimum infrastructure / facilities, be prepared to bring your own necessities. Entrance fee is Rp.10,000 (about SGD$1) Activity available seems like only Banana Boat for Rp.20,000 per person (about SGD$2). You can swim too, but the changing room/toilet can be challenging for some people.
Opening hours :  Okay, please just come in the  morning or daytime.
How to go there : chartered Silver Cab in Batam (phone no: 0778461000) or Blue Bird taxi (phone no: 0778421234 ). You can rent a car in Batam too, but i have not experienced it so i don’t recommend anyone about it yet. Journey will take about 45 mins drive.
Location : Jalan Hang Kesturi, Batu Besar. Malay Village after passing the 4th Barelang bridge there is another road with signage on the right side.

Pantai Melayu, Batam

Adalah : Pantai dengan ombak laut yang tenang dan angin sepoi-sepoi di pagi atau sore hari. Pantai yang jauh dari keramaian namun fasilitasnya masih minim, jadi persiapan harus matang kalau mau kesini. Harga masuk sebesar Rp.10,000. Aktivitas di pantai cuma ada Banana Boat dengan harga Rp.20,000 per orang. Kamu bisa berenang juga tapi toilet dan tempat ganti bajunya agak “menantang” untuk beberapa orang.
Jam Buka : Oke, untuk keamanan silahkan datang di pagi, siang atau sore hari.
Cara pergi : Charter Silver Cab di Batam (telephone: 0778461000) atau taksi Blue Bird (telephone: 0778421234). Kamu juga bisa menyewa mobil di Batam, tapi saya belum pernah coba, jadi belum bisa merekomendasikan disini. Perjalanan ke Pantai Melayu memakan waktu selama 45 menit dengan mobil.
Lokasi : Jalan Hang Kesturi, Batu Besar. Kampung Melayu terletak di daerah setelah melewati jembatan Barelang yang ke 4, di sebelah kanan jalan ada papan petunjuk untuk menuju ke Kampung Melayu.
