- A Thrilling ATV Adventure in Bintan!
Get ready for a thrilling ATV adventure in Bintan! Each resort offers different routes for you to explore, whether you want to ride through bumpy jungle trails or along the scenic beach. During our ride, we went off-road into the jungle and had a blast zooming around at top speed while avoiding trees. And with the guidance of an Action ATV Staff, we felt safe the whole time.
Just make sure to wear sturdy shoes that cover your feet and ankles for protection since the terrain can be rough.
You can try this exciting activity at Nirwana Gardens, Cassia Bintan, Pantai Indah Lagoi Bintan or Treasure Bay.
- Conquering Bintan’s Tallest Mountain for an Unforgettable Adventure!
Get ready for an adventure that’s perfect for all hiking levels – conquering Gunung Bintan, which stands 340 meters high! You don’t need to be a pro to take on this exciting challenge.
During the hike, we were in awe of the towering trees that stood over 40 meters tall and the incredible wildlife we came across, like playful silver leaf monkeys, nimble deer, and soaring eagles. And when we reached the summit, we were rewarded with breathtaking views and even got to taste some delicious seasonal wild fruits like durians and jackfruits. Don’t forget to check out the stunning waterfall at the base!
The descent can be a bit challenging, but no worries, there are rest stops along the way to catch your breath. Just make sure to set aside around four hours for the trek and wear comfy footwear and long pants. And don’t forget to pack insect repellent, sunblock, and some snacks to keep you fueled.

- Take Aim and Let Loose, Experience Archery and Shooting Ranges
Let’s test our aim with archery and shooting! Archery may be challenging at first, but keep practicing and you’ll hit the bullseye in no time. Shooting a gun is slightly easier, but the Airsoft gun and outdoor rifle can be heavy.
Don’t worry if you’re a beginner, the instructors are there to help with your stance and holding the gun. Each round includes 15 arrows or pellets, so have fun and keep practicing to improve your skills!
You can try archery at Bintan Lagoon Resort and Nirwana Gardens, while shooting is available at Nirwana Gardens’ Airsoft Gun Shooting Range.
- Experience the Thrill of Riding a Jetovator and Underwater Scooter at Crystal Lagoon
Prepare for a fun day at Southeast Asia’s first and largest seawater body, the Crystal Lagoon. With its crystal clear water spread across 6 hectares, you can indulge in a variety of water sports and activities.
The Jetovator and Underwater Scooter were two activities we enjoyed the most. With Jetovator, you can soar high like Ironman using water pressure, while the Underwater Scooter lets you zip around the lagoon and enjoy the view.
If these are not your cup of tea, you can try other activities like Kayaking, Stand up paddle, Water Bike, and Water Tricycle. Crystal Lagoon is calm and safe all year round, and you can see even the smallest objects in its clear water. So, get ready to have fun and create memories that last a lifetime!
Available at Treasure Bay Bintan
- Wakeboarding at Bintan Wake Park
Looking for some excitement? Try wakeboarding at Bintan Wake Park, situated in the Crystal Lagoon. Instead of a motorboat, this park uses electric cables to propel you forward, designed by German wake-park technology. Even if you’re a beginner, don’t worry! The park provides friendly instructors and safety gear for your protection.
To start, keep your knees bent, your body relaxed, and hold the rope low. Focus on balancing, and you’ll soon be gliding across the water. Life vests and helmets are included, so just bring yourself and a desire for adventure.

- Ride the waves on a thrilling jetski adventure!
Want an exciting water activity? Try jet skiing at Lagoi Beach! This stunning beach is renowned for its clear water and scenic beauty, perfect for an adrenaline-filled adventure.
But jet skiing can be challenging for beginners. We had a hard time controlling our speed and direction, but our instructor was patient and helped us get the hang of it. It was a bit scary to take control of the jet ski at first, but it was also exhilarating to feel like pirates skimming over the water!
Despite our worries, the jet ski was stable and easy to maneuver. We didn’t have to worry about falling or tipping over. With its powerful engine and quick movements, jet skiing is an experience everyone seeking thrills should try.
Visit Lagoi Beach and experience it for yourself!
- Explore the Wonders of Mangroves on a Kayaking Adventure
Kayaking through a mangrove forest is an incredible experience! With a knowledgeable guide, we paddled through calm waters, enjoying the peaceful surroundings and looking out for unique animals. We learned about the traditional ways of life of the nearby village and the different wildlife living in the mangrove. During the 1.5-hour kayak ride, we saw amazing creatures such as a beautiful kingfisher catching a fish, a camouflaged snake napping in the branches, mudskippers, crabs, water snails, and small fish in the riverbed.
After our adventure, we headed to one of the nearby kelong restaurants for some delicious fresh seafood.
This fantastic tour is available at Treasure Bay and BRC Tours, with daily departures and prices starting from S$38 for adults and S$25 for children. Come and join the fun!

Personally, we think parasailing is the best activity on the list. Being lifted up into the sky and feeling the wind in your face is an amazing experience. Just remember to book in advance since parasailing is a popular activity.
