There is accommodation of all standards, and it is still possible to find a peaceful spot on Bintan far from other tourists.

Most of the tourism is concentrated on the north coast around Lagoi, while the east coast is still unspoiled and worth a visit. In  the recent past Bintan was covered with tropical rain forests. That has now gone, except for a small forest that covers the highest mountain on the island, Bintan Besar. The mountain is the remains of an old volcano, and has an elevation of 376 m, the highest point on the Riau islands.
