Very nice place. It feel likes you are isolated from the world. You can get into the sea and have fun.
To be honest there are better beaches out-there. This one is filled with rocks and plastics! Yaaaak
Beautiful place to visit in the morning and evening .parking is available in the road nearby or even in Japanese peace temple . Can visit the temple and see the beach. Has to walk around 10 min to go to the beach . Rumassala mountain is close by too . Can bring kids . Please keep the area clean after enjoying the beauty.
One of the beautiful beaches and view from the Rumassala hill is picturisque. Shallow waters were known to be with diverse coral reefs. But now only remnants are there.
Blue + green colour ocean, white sand, good if go groups. warning: avoid jungle, do not polut environment
