Affordable basic beachfront
As long as you don’t mind the slightly grungy bathrooms, Teman Teman offers good value beachside rooms with more very affordable rooms back off the beach on the far side of the road.
The two beachside rooms are the best value here. They’re just fan-cooled with cold water bathrooms and a garden setting, but they’ll do the job and are right on the beach -- one had a hammock strung as we passed by. We’d imagine the rooms on the far side of the road would catch more than their fair share of traffic noise. Staff try hard to be helpful and there is a very simple cafe attached. If you’re looking for beachside on a budget and the cheap rooms at Pantai Seafood are gone, Teman Teman is worth a look.
