Opposite the barrels at Turtles break, Spanish run Turtles Bungalows is the best option on this strip offering a handful of wooden duplex cottages, a terrific double-storey hangout and dining space where you can watch the waves and sip a cold Bintang.

The bungalows are modest affairs, only a moderate step up from simple beach huts, under renovation when we visited in late 2017 (there was also a pool on the way), with mid-sized fan-cooled or air-con twin or double rooms. Single travellers can opt to share a bungalow with a shared bathroom. Simply furnished with wood and bamboo, beds are comfy and mozzie netted with clean linen. Theres’s room for your bags and board and power sockets and light switches are where they’re needed. Tiled ensuite bathrooms are the most modern in the area with Western thrones and hooks and shelves, but cold-water showers only. Furnished balconies are a top spot to kick back and enjoy the garden or shoot the breeze.

Rates here are comparatively high and are per person, quoted in euros, but include all meals and word is, Turtles Bungalows has the best tucker on the strip offering everything from local fish barbecues to paella and served with a stunning sea view which improves the taste of anything. Beer and soft drinks are at an additional cost, but no more than their neighbours (large Bintang 50,000 rupiah). You can also help yourself to tea and coffee and drinking water anytime.

Even though WiFi is said to be available in the restaurant area, don’t take that as gospel, as at the time of research, it’s all but non-existent in the area.

Simple but comfortable.

Turtles Bungalows is a one kilometre walk to the turtle sanctuary where you can see hatchlings released and egg laying most evenings and is opposite the Turtles surf break. The friendly owner can arrange day trips to other surf breaks and nearby waterfalls and provide transport from Jakarta airport.

If Turtles Bungalows are full and you’re after a little more comfort than the basic options along the beach, air-con rooms can be found back from the beach in the characterless modern brick block at Batu Besar Losmen or with a tad more character, three kilometres south, at Turtle Beach Hotel. Alternately if you’re on a budget, Jungle Feet offers a no-frills sleep and tasty local fare with the same million dollar views.
