“Enjoy a lazy day here. Towels and loungers are available at Taman Sari resort for 25,000 rupiah. Rent snorkel gear and snorkel from the beach exploring their conservation efforts with the coral gardens. There is also a small turtle hatchery down the beach. It is a nice effort to support. Tickets are 25,000. ”
“The grey-brown sand is a little thin and definitely not powdery but you can't beat the setting. The blue waters and surrounding green hills make for a beautiful scene, especially when crimson and orange join the colour palette at sunset. Strolling the beach is popular, as you'd expect. The little fishing village is interesting; walk around to the eastern end of the dogbone to escape a lot of the development. Look for various traditional-style boats being built on the shore.”
