Pantai Air Manis, Padang
(2.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Swim or surf at Pantai Air Manis, 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 Pantai Air Manis represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Padang itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
