What’s Special

This place offers the beauty of Lake Toba, the panoramic view of its forest, and the beaches. Besides, Tigaras in popular for fishing. Its shore is among deepest shores on Lake Toba. Deeper water yields more fish. As the depth increases, the temperature in the water stabilizes, and that makes fish more comfortable. Fishing at night is more convenient than during the day due to the sun ray reflection during the day.

Directly facing the Samosir island’s promontory, Tigaras also has a port connecting the mainland with the island. You can get on the ferry to see Samosir during the day then return to relax at Tigaras in the afternoon.
