Gurun Pasir Busung

Be transported into a dreamy insta-worthy photo spot with mysterious and picturesque hilly sand dunes at Gurun Pasir Busung. Located next to the road, Jalan Raya Busung near Tanjung Uban, the western bay of Bintan Island, it is hard to imagine coming across a ‘desert’ in the middle of a tropical Indonesia island.


After the extraction of sand was prohibited in Bintan Island, the area was left untouched and transformed into a charming desert sandscape under the magical hands of nature.


Gentle slopes with varying hues of light brown and yellow accompanied by tints of red in the sand makes Gurun Pasir Busung one of the most Instagram-able spots in Bintan Island. Bring the unique experience to the next level by hopping onto one of the Sahara-inspired photo spots available and immortalise the moment with your best pose.
