Padang Padang Beach, Pecatu

3.3
#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.

  • It's not that wonderful, the air is not that fresh (stingy moss from the sea). If you think this beautiful, you haven't been to Sihanouk Ville, Cambodia. Much more perfect than this.  more »
  • such a great hidden gem under the bridge HAHAaa went here back then and it is small yet still nice beach  more »
  • This was a very pretty beach! Lots of tourists! When we were there the beach was very shallow. We went out pretty far and the water still wasn’t that deep so it could be a place for everyone to visit....  more »

  • 1000 parking fee for your bike and a 10,000 fee to enter. Beach is small and does get pretty crowded. Umbrellas go for 100,000 to rent for the day. During low tide its pretty but quite impossible to go for a swim so i suggest coming at high tide. Not the best beach we've been to in the area
  • 4 stars mostly for the landscape on low tide. Be sure to arrive early because the place gets packed. Try out the local food being serve at Lunch time. The beach is rather small and has a lot of surfers.
  • Exotic beach. Through the small cave to get to the beach. Nice spot for relaxing, enjoying sunbath and playing surf
  • Not so hidden gem but definitely must go! The water is still clear and the sand is still white! Not recommended for seniors and wheelchair users cause you need to go thru dark, narrow and steep steps to reach. The size of the beach is relatively small so you can easily watch your kids. 1 or 2 hours is enough to spend here
  • Good for surfers, not for swimming. Beautiful bite-sized white sand beach, very good for surfing but awful for swimming as it's too rocky. There's small entrance fee (10K per person) but in return you get free toilet and shower. Beware of taxi drivers here, they will definitely rip you off as there's no transportation option here. They fight Uber and Grabtaxi cars and make them run away. Book beforehand with your Uber driver or better; rent bikes.
