Belitung Island (English: Billiton) lies midway between South Sumatra and Kalimantan, 340 km north of Jakarta, in the Java Sea. It forms part of the province of Bangka-Belitung Islands. Belitung’s population of 270,000 is mainly Malay, with a range of other ethnicities. It is circular, 85 km across, with low hills, and its major towns are Tanjung Pandan in the west and Manggar in the east, which are the respective capitals of the two Regencies (Belitung and Belitung Timur). It is religiously diverse, with a majority of Muslims. The island is noted for its tin production. Interestingly, BHP Billiton (2001), the world’s largest mining company, had part of its origin in the 1851 Dutch discovery of tin on Belitung Island.

The island is also a producer of fishery products, pepper, coconut, and palm oil. People work as farmers, fishermen and miners. The pewter souvenirs you purchase in Indonesia will be made of 97.5% Belitung (or Bangka) tin. Tourists are attracted to its world class and uncrowded white sandy beaches and offshore islets, colourful boats, clear turquoise waters, the 130 year old lighthouse at Pulau Lengkuas, Malay style wooden houses, old Hindu temples, the new Chinese Kong Hu Cu temple, Guanyin Buddhist Temple, mausoleums, museums, and nature reserves.

In downtown Tanjung Pandan there are many old colonial Dutch buildings and antiques, Bugis fishing vessels and markets, and old Dutch tin mining housing compound. Dine on Mie Belitung Atep. In 1998 a fisherman discovered the 18 m shipwreck (c. 830 AD) of an Arabian dhow trading between China and Oman, about 2 km off the NW shore of Belitung. It revealed how ships were built then (planks stitched together with twine), and contained many Chinese artifacts now in museums. A replica is on show at Sentosa, Singapore.
