Pantai Kecil

Secluded white sand beach

What we say: 4 stars

The white-sand beach, fringed by coconut palms, is at the bottom of a steep dirt track. Access the beach by heading directly west from the entrance of the ferry terminal along the small tarred road. Approximately 200m along the road, a steep rocky opening appears on the left and this "road" leads up the hill to what the locals call a parking area, but is much more like the surface of the moon — only bumpier.

A car can be taken up here, but it is a hairy ride and extreme caution is recommended. Once at the top of the hill, a dirt track leads down to the beach. From the ferry terminal, the entire walk should not take more than 15 minutes.

The usual array of beach sellers lies in wait at the beach to provide food, beverages and massages for about 40,000 rupiah per hour. Well worth a visit.
