Air Manis Beach, Padang

1.6
#2 of 10 in Outdoors in Padang
Swim or surf at Air Manis Beach, where the rock formations are said to be the remains of the shipwreck of famous local legend Malin Kundang, a sailor who turned to stone. The smaller waves at this brown sand beach are especially suitable for beginner surfers. Stretch out on the sand for a bit of sunbathing and relaxation while listening to the breeze and crashing waves. You can rent surfboards or a small hut on the coastline. If your visit falls during low tide, you can walk through shallow water to a nearby islet 200 m (650 ft) from the shore. A visit to Air Manis Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Padang itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Padang

Following the massive earthquake of 2009, accommodation options in Padang have slightly decreased due to the demolishment of some of the city's older hotels. Since then, a spate of more modern hotels and lodgings have cropped up, offering onsite restaurants serving authentic local and international food, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. Otherwise, family-owned and run guesthouses with clean, basic rooms (and sometimes ensuite bathrooms) remain the best options for budget-conscious backpackers.
