The place is clean and easy access. The view is amazing. Easy to find restaurant in the area. And also easy to find place to pray (Masjid) in the area.

It's not really clean beach, and I guess the beach is not really higiene for kids to play around. Too much street musician and too much homeless.

The city municipal was in full force cleaning and upgrading the facilities of the beach front. A few traders were seen selling corn and sugarcane drinks. Local seafood was available too at a decent price. Dont forget to bargain to get the best value.

There is a street that goes right next an ocean and there is alot of kiosks and sea food available. There's a nice statue of a bird on a way, check it out. Cheap beer, bring your own bottle opener tho.

Located at the center of padang city. Good place for family picnic, close with seafood restaurant across the street. Bunch of rock at the beach creates sound of wave that make you comfort and great place to enjoy the sunset.

The place was too crowded when the sun set in. The view was magnificent. Put down the camera and enjoy the view ;)

Always too crowded during daytime. Better to go there during blue hour (before 5am) and sunset (around 6.30 pm).
