Another popular tourist destination in Indonesia is this town in Pangandaran Regency within the province of West Java. It is likewise frequented by neophyte surfers due to its fine black sand beach and regular-sized waves.
Its major attraction is the Pangandaran National Park located on an entire 100 meter wide headland. Other places to visit in the Regency include the Green Canyon and Citumang.
