We drove out to the beach, Nuvasa Bay – one of the new resorts in Batam Riau, Indonesia.
The resort, I’m sure, is full of fun activities from banana boat rides to zip lines. Still, you’ll find all these activities in most of the top resorts and beaches in Batam. I’d done most of these activities before. Check out my complete Batam travel guide here.
Here I’ll share what I did out of all these activities. I had done a lot of banana boat riding before so I decided I would go for a 4×4 squad bike riding.
Visiting Nuvasa Bay – Table of Content
I must say, the beach was unquestionably well-maintained with a spectacular view. Since there were so many activities to choose from, we decided we’ll just get ourselves entrance passes to the beach first. We decided to check out the activities later.
We had no trouble communicating either. After all, we’ve been living in Batam for years.

Entering the beach, we found a spot to settle down on the warm beach sand.
By ‘we’- I mean mum, dad, and myself. My little brother, however, was already prancing around at the tips of the waves that hit the shore. I stared at him. He had his little swimming suit on with a water gun in his hand. We finally got a spot with a modest hammock and settled down for it. I’d brought the guitar along too.
Nuvasa Bay – Music, Me and the Tree
You see, music is all about enjoying the moment, getting involved with it, feeling it. It’s also about grabbing attention from people, getting girls – well, enjoying the moment is important though. I played some songs facing the breathing waves. I sang the songs to myself as no one came around. Then I got bored with it and looked around for something more interesting to do.
Behind me, I found a tree with a fixed ladder to it. I looked up. It seemed to be over four floors high and on the top was sort of a platform out of wooden planks.
I looked around. No one.
I went to the tree and started to climb up. I mean, how dangerous could it be? Unfortunately, I found the answer to it when I stepped over the last rung onto the wooden platform. The platform had no safety around. However, the view from up there was breathtaking.
Nuvasa bay has a lot of photogenic spots.
Yeah, the picture sure is amazing. By the time, I got the shot, I was sweating worse than a pig. With great difficulty, I managed to somehow make it down to the ground alive.
Though it’s an amazing spot to check out. Nuvasa Bay is to become an exclusive residential spot in Batam. You can purchase apartments here.

Highlight of the day
That next activity I got myself in was the highlight – I slept. Not my fault! Imagine yourself in my place- a nice hammock, warm air, and a filmy breeze under a tree. If I’d slept for just a while and that would have been acceptable. However, I slept for the rest of our stay on the beach.
My dad enjoyed playing the guitar later and mum enjoyed taking pictures of me sleeping like the one below. You know what my brother was doing. And that was how we spent the weekend at the beach :)
When we were on our way back, I smiled. I’d come all the way to a beach – a resort- and I never touched the damn water! Facing out, I looked out the car window.
I thought to myself, Now that’s a vacation worth sharing. This is the shortest ever travel blog that I’ve written!
