Cinta Stone in Natuna Regency, Riau Islands – Indonesia
Have you ever visited Natuna Regency? This region is part of Riau Islands of Indonesia and becomes the homes of stunning natural attractions like beaches, mountains, and islands. Still, you can also find other interesting places to explore. For instance, it is Cinta Stone. What is it? Simply put, it is an appealing place to spend beautiful days with your spouse or beloved ones. Cinta means “love”, after all. The site features a pile of granite located in the shoreline, which is popular among couples. The location is in Pengadah Village and it belongs to Northeast Bunguran Sub-District.
The main feature of the site is definitely the pile of granites, coming with different size and shape. The locals often call it Bacin, which is the abbreviation of such name. Despite the name, you can’t find a particular granite that represents the shape of a heart or love. Instead, it symbolizes the atmosphere of the location. Often times, you may see local couples (usually teenagers) visit the site and build a stronger relationship there. Thanks to the unspoiled beach and comfy air.
Exploring Cinta Stone
Just because Cinta Stone is popular among teenagers, doesn’t mean it is prohibited for married couples. On the other hand, it helps you to strengthen your relationship and create good moments with your spouse. It is as simple as sitting on the granite while witnessing the coastline views. Even the sound of the waves makes a romantic ambiance there! As for the tip, make sure to come either during sunrise or sunset. It is because the nuance feels dreamier at those times and the weather feels nicer.
Aside from sitting on the granites and enjoying the beach views, many other things can be done on the site. Here is an example. You can perform photography like selfie or take pictures of those stones using a camera or a smartphone. One thing, make sure to come during good weather if you want to get the best pictures. Rainy weather definitely ruins your chance to conduct photography there, no? Not to mention it is important to use a good camera as it helps you to adjust the quality of the photos later.
Another important consideration is related to things that you wear. Those granites reside near to the beach, so it is likely the surface is quite slippery. In this case, make sure to wear comfy footwear that comes with excellent grip. Also, do not forget to wear a hat when exploring the site. It is because the temperature becomes too hot sometimes, especially at noon. If you decide to carry snacks and drinks, make sure to take care of the trash later.
