Whilst many people visit Nikoi just to unwind, we do offer a wide range of activities for the more active. The best thing about this is that we do not charge for most of these activities and you are free to use the equipment for as long and as often as you like. Charges will typically apply for more advanced equipment and activities such as diving and rock climbing. Many of our staff are experienced sailors, divers and rock climbers and are always happy to help introduce guests to a new activity.
Rock climbing/mountain biking & trekking There are some exciting trails for walkers or mountain bikers to explore on Bintan and neighbouring islands.
Tennis and Croquet
We have two natural grass tennis courts on Nikoi. We rotate these so one court is in play for tennis and the other set up for Croquet. The nature of a natural grass court is that it cannot be played all the time so please bear with us but we think it is the best surface to play on.
There are plenty of opportunities to explore the island’s flora and fauna. At low tide the rock pools around the reef make a fascinating area to explore for both adults and children. Our staff will be happy to help you identify what you see or even take you on a guided walk pointing out the flora and fauna. We have a team that monitors the beaches for turtle nests and works on marine conservation so do ask to speak to any of these staff if this is something you are interested in. Turtles nest on the island between February and September.
Beach volleyball, Boule, Capture the Flag etc.
A range of games is available upon request. For more active guests, members of staff are always keen for a game of volleyball.
