Natsepa Beach, Ambon

#1 of 31 in Things to do in Maluku Islands
Beach Nature / Park
Known for its calm water, fine white sand, and local delicacies, Natsepa Beach remains a popular spot for swimming and sunbathing. Splash around the clear shallow water, or take a boat ride and enjoy the picturesque views. Cool off in a beachside bar with a coconut drink, served inside a fresh shell. Try the famous "rujak"--a fruit salad with peanut sauce and palm sugar--or opt for one of the other snacks and dishes, such as fried bananas and steamed corn. Keep in mind that the beach may get crowded; consider renting a small beach house with its own restrooms, where you can get away from the sun and change your clothes.

  • Great attraction for locals. A stretch of stalls serving fruit skewers with peanut sauce. Many kiosks but they all do the same thing. Some street vendor also sells fried bananas. That's yummy. The beach does not apply. Trivial, dirty and crowded, especially on weekends.
