Pangandaran is slightly off the beaten track. It's very popular with the local Javanese people so expect company. The beach can be crowded and expect to see locals in local dress code especially on the beach. Sunsets and beachside restaurants abound. Enjoy.

We spent an evening here to watch the sunset, which is beautiful if you actually get to see it. Sadly, it was quite cloudy that evening and we didn't experience the majestic show.

This place is our childhood annual place to visit. Was clean and good but now quite dirty but I heard 10th January 2018 they will begin to relocate the street vendors into the building. Thanks God
