Places of Interest in Pangandaran Beach, Java Island

Small mainland peninsula with a national park with beaches and
stunning scenery to rival the beaches of Bali on the south coast of
Java. Pangandaran is one of Java's best-kept secrets as far as
international tourists are concerned, but has been extremely popular
with locals for along, long time. A small fishing town, it possesses one
of Java's finest beaches and Pangandaran Nature Reserve teems with wild
buffalo, barking deer and monkeys. The people are very friendly, this
combined with the idealize surroundings make this a great place to spend
a few days relaxing island-style. Pangandaran is halfway between
Bandung and Yogya, about 5 hours by bus from Bandung and 8 hours from

This is the second beach resort area on the Indian Ocean after
Pelabuhan Ratu. The site is 223 from Bandung and 400km from Jakarta. The
trip by car or bus is recommendable because the road conditions are
good. However, if we prefer to take the train, get into
Bandung-Yogyakarta Express train and get off at the Banjar railroad
station about 4 hours later. From here it will be another 50 km by bus
to Pangandaran. The beach is called Penanjung, where most of the
cottages and hotels are located, however, of modest ratings. Nothing
luxurious should be expected. Pangandaran is especially of interest to
nature lovers, as there is a wildlife reserve in the vicinity where wild
birds and other indigenous animals live about freely to be enjoyed by
visitors. In Pangandaran visitors will like fine white beaches, blue
ocean and fine seafood. Twelve kilometers before arriving at Pangandaran
visitors will see a huge rock on the beach, which is called Karang

Another place of special interest for nature lovers is a forest
Conservation Park, close to the camping ground, which has basic
facilities suitable for the younger set. Somewhat further out, west of
Pangandaran, driving 23 km on the way to Parigi, lays Batu Hiu, meaning
Shark's Rock, a coastal rock that has the shark shape.
