Maluk Beach in Sumbawa Regency, West Nusa Tenggara Province
A vacation to Sumbawa Regency may give tons of fun and new experience to tourists. It gives lots of information regarding cultures and satisfaction when it comes to a natural exploration. For those who are into beaches, in this case, they should not miss the chance to visit Maluk Beach! The location is in West Sumbawa and it is known for its exotic panorama. The beach belongs to Jereweh Sub-District, which is near to Taliwang. People usually come to the site for numerous activities including beach walking, crab hunting, sunrise watching, and even surfing!
Maluk Beach has a peaceful nuance despite the high number of visitors. The shoreline features a white sandy landscape and the texture is quite soft. It looks faultless, in fact! Most of the time, several crabs and sea urchins are seen on it. Next, the beach also features two stunning hills that flank it. No wonder, the waves are calm and safe for swimming. In some parts of the sea, though, the waves are bigger and suitable for surfing. What is more? Another feature is none other than the sunrise that appears behind Mantun Hill!
Exploring Maluk Beach
Maluk Beach has become locals’ recommended vacation spot to enjoy a family recreation. Many people are also interested to visit the beach due to the facilities. It is because visitors may find good places to relax and several food stalls that sell numerous types of local foods and drinks. Eating delicious foods while watching sea scenery is a perfect way to spend a vacation, no? The best thing is the price of those foods is quite affordable!
After eating and sightseeing, the next thing that tourists can do in Maluk Beach is to watch Tukik (small sea turtles) conservation. Tourists would be lucky if they are able to witness the release procedure. Once the sea turtles reach the minimum age to get to the sea, the caretakers would release them carefully to the shore. This process looks beautiful, somehow. The problem is tourists are not able to see this moment every day.
What is more? Visitors can spend their money to rent a canoe and explore the calm sea in a safe manner. The rent fee is cheap, so don’t worry. For those who love surfing, they should reach a certain spot where the waves are stronger. Fortunately, both beginners and experts are able to enjoy surfing there. Beginners should only surf near to the coastline due to the safer waves, though. For experts, they can go further to the midst of the sea (across Ahmad Cape) to experience stronger and taller waves that reach up to 2 meters in height!
