Padang Padang Beach, Pecatu

3.5
#1 of 8 in Outdoors in Pecatu
Experience a day of relaxation and activity at Padang Padang Beach, a stretch of coastline where the sand is white, the sea is blue, and the whole scene is neatly framed by rock formations. Head out into the waters to soak up one of the most famous and popular surf spots in the region, or watch from the comfort of one of the beachside restaurants and bars. Well-known in the tourist and traveler scene, the beach can become very busy at certain times of the year, but the range of activities available and the scenery still make it an attractive choice.

  • Very nice and charming little beach. Upon arrival you have to pay an entry (don't remember but around €1 to change) and down some stairs. Waters of Turquoise and ideal for sunbathing and an afternoon.

  • There is much hype over this beach, its highly overrated. I had much expectations when i visited there, but it was dirty, crowdy and really tiny, the only thing i liked was its cave like approach and ...  more »
  • This beach is reached by a staircase down through a rock cave. Very cool with little monkeys hanging around the way. And when you get to the bottom, you are hit by such a beautiful little beach that i...  more »

  • It was a random stop on another tour so we didn't have our swimming gear. But I think the best beach to swim on definitely. It is a little bay so there are no waves, just cool water to enjoy. There seemed aome surfing spots off to the side. Take an umbrella if you don't want to be scorched. There are some stalls selling drinks and food and knick knacks. There is quite a steep staircase to get to the beach. You can access the main staircase or go through the little hole in a cave to get to the beach.
  • Nice beach. Clear waters. However was extremely crowded when I was there. Also the climb down to the beach nd back up is extremely exhausting. Specially if you have kids with you.
  • very low entry fee (10k), beautiful sceneries, clear water (except for the tree leaves). and i love how the hills just end up at the sea.
  • you pay 10k to get down there. there’s lots of parking across the road too. it was really crowded when we went after lunchtime so head around 8am if you want to avoid crowds. unfortunately the water wasn’t nice as there was lots of floating rubbish. plenty of vendours selling blankets, food and drinks. up near the restaurant are free toilets and showers.
  • nice beach to take a walk and to surf if u r into it. shops with eatables, wash room and moving vendors for stuff like ice creams are available with reasonable price.
