Watu Karung Beach, Pacitan

5.0
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Pacitan
Watu Karung Beach is known for its pristine nature, soft white sand, sweeping panoramas, and big blue waves that attract surfers. Look for a rock formation that resembles the head of a longhaired woman, and bring your own food and beverages if you wish to picnic here, as there are no restaurants nearby. Because of the waves, the sea is not suitable for swimming, but you can boat or fish. The sunsets at this location are truly special, and the night sky over the beach is speckled with millions of stars.

  • Be careful! Were on this beach in may 2017 g. Beach is beautiful. Simply heavenly place. Clean. Blue wave, islets, white sand. But her husband got to RIP on the left side of the beach between the two islands. Saved his Spanish surfers. 20 minutes could not pull out on the Board for not giving swim to shore. Signs, posters, billboards and flags on the shore was not.

  • Please, be careful, swimming and surfing here is not recommended for beginners. There are currents of fast moving water going out to sea making it extremely difficult to swim back to shore. :)  more »
