Take a hike across the forest-covered headland of Pangandaran National Park. Along the way see caves used by the Japanese during World War II, ruins of a Hindu temple, volcanic black sand beaches, and many wild beasts, including porcupines, barking deer, hornbills, monitor lizards, monkeys, and fruit bats. The proper way to arrive at the park is to take a boat to the main beach. Some tourists choose to swim or wade around the barrier marking the park's boundary on the western coast, but be aware this is technically illegal, if rarely enforced. Discover how to plan a Pangandaran trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
