The Nuance

Exploring Watu Pecah Beach

The breezy warm wind makes it more peaceful, in fact.

The next great feature is the formation of coral reefs located in different areas of the shoreline. Not only their size varies, but they also have a different shape! Due to their existence, the waves look more fabulous when they hit those rocks. The best part is tourists are able to climb them and take photos on it. Here is the consideration. They must explore and climb the coral reefs carefully due to the slippery and uneven surface.

Well, perhaps everyone is ready to visit Watu Pecah Beach even though one may come with a different purpose than others. Regardless of the motive, tourists should consider hiring a local guide who knows the route well. After all, it takes some trekking in order to get to the beach. Not to mention tourists must pass through Clungup Beach first before reaching Watu Pecah. So, it is better to spend money on the guide service than getting lost during the trip, no?
