The following are recommendations for beaches in Banten that can be visited this weekend.
The beaches in Banten are not only Anyer, Tanjung Lesung, Carita, or Umang. If you want to go on a road trip with family or friends this weekend, there are many other beaches that can be visited there.
In addition to wearing comfortable footwear, because most beaches have coral reefs, remind yourself and others not to dare to swim to the middle, because the waves on Banteng beaches are quite large.
The following are recommendations for beaches in Banten that can be visited:
1. Karang Taraje Beach
Large rocks and waves breaking between them make a waterfall-like view on this beach.
Located in Darmasari Village, Lebak Regency, this beach is suitable for tourists who like photography tourism.
2. Sawarna Beach
This beach is crowded with tourists who like to surf, because the waves are quite challenging. Therefore, tourists wanting to swim in its waters must be careful. Around the coast there are also forests, caves, and cliffs that can be visited.
3. Karang Songsong Beach
Still dominated by coral reefs, this beach is visited by many tourists who want to hunt at dusk. This beach, which is located in Karangkamulyan Village, Lebak Regency, also has fine brown sand that is comfortable to walk on.
4. Karang Bolong Beach
Located about 50 km from the city of Serang, as the name implies, this beach offers a panoramic view of large hollow rocks. This beach is crowded with tourists who want to do pre-wedding photos because the scenery is very magical.
5. Ciputih Beach
Apart from the fine and white sand, this beach is also blessed with clear, turkish blue waters. Snorkeling activities can be done on the beach, which is located in Sumur District, Pandeglang.
6. Tanjung Layar Beach
Large rocks shaped like ship sails are a magnet for the arrival of many tourists to this beach.
From noon to late in the evening more and more tourists will arrive, because the waters will recede to the middle, leaving rocks that can be stepped on to take pictures.
7. Cihara Beach
The corals with holes are big enough to leave holes which, if splashed by the waves, make it a mini swimming pool. The view of the sunset here is also considered by many tourists to be quite neat.
8. Sangiang Island
This island was used as the location of a fort by the Japanese colonizers, therefore there are many remnants of the war that tourists can still see when they come here, such as cannons, bunkers, and fort ruins. Snorkeling activities can be done on this island, which is 45 minutes from the fast boat from Anyer Beach.
9. Peucang Island
White sand and clear turquoise waters are the main sights of the island, which is located in Ujungkulon National Park. Besides playing with water, tourists who come here can also see rhino conservation.
