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.
