  • Good beach. The Rock passageway to the beach is a nice walk. Nice beach but very small and can get very crowded  more »
  • We had our accommodation near the beach and we were recommended by our hostess to learn this beach for surfing. To get to the beach you have to pay a small amount (15,000 IDR, just under 90 cents). Who comes a little earlier pleases me less tourists. Around noon (12.30/13.00) it gets really crowded on the small beach. The beach is totally sweet, but small. The beach has some coarse-grained sand, if you go into the water there are many small to medium-sized stones!! So be ware! Also further in the water there are rocks that you don't see! If you want to learn to surf or surf, come a little earlier (around 11 a.m.). Just go to one of the "life guards" who are on the beach and ask, these offer as well as 3-4 other stalls learning to surf (700,000 IDR if you trade something, for 2 people). Included are instructions on the land (how do I put myself on the surfboard) and in the water (the surf instructor comes with him into the water, for 2 h approx. (after that you really can't) and shows you the waves you can take, he pushes you and gives you a sign when the b time is to get up). Unfortunately we lacked the safety instructions, which means how do I deal with it when the shaft is right in front of Bricht and I can't dodge in time and thus get carried under water and by the wave or what is the best way to dodge a wave (so that first not happens three times in a row. speaks from personal experience ..). I would advise you to inform yourself in advance or to ask the guide directly!! We asked our guide if we had our backpacks with wallet ect. included, he then made in his personal subject, Mega! It is possible to rent a surfboard with and without lessons! Photos are taken from a small vantage point. So time to know when you were in the water and follow the signs to the photographer with a little patience! We got cool pictures (1 picture=100,000 IDR)! In addition, there are many warungs on the beach!

  • This is a very easily accessible beach. It takes a few 30 stairs to reach the actual beach. The entrance fee is Rp10,000 per head. The entrance has lots of monkeys by the way! So be sure to put your things in a bag first. There are clean toilets outside, so you can change there. The beach itself is very pretty. Clean, white sand and blue waters. There are many large rocks and lots of corals on the shores. The place can get crowded with tourists at times - since it definitely is no hidden beach, but it is not overly popular yet. There were lots of surfers here, and you can also rent surf boards or take surfing lessons here. A nice beach to spend some time at, and it's not too difficult to get there either.
  • Truly magical sea caves to explore, secluded cliffs to climb, sandbars filled with beautiful seashells to collect, and pristine blue waters to swim in. There aren’t too many people here because it’s in a farther location. Only downside is the wild monkeys on the beach itself. Not a good place to sunbathe but if you want to swim this is perfect.
