About my country, Indonesia, there will always be something to talk about. This time, I would like to talk about my experience visiting islands which have beautiful beaches and white sand. It might be a little bit ‘tormenting’ for you to feel how cold it is now in Hamburg meanwhile you are sitting in front of your computer reading this article and dreaming about beaches with white sand, coconut trees, warm water and sun. However, who knows, maybe it will give you some ideas where to spend your holiday next year.
I have so many references about beaches in Indonesia, but I will just share few of them regarding how limited the page is. I would like to start from the western part of Indonesia.
1. Pulau Pagang (Pagang island)
Pulau Pagang is a very beautiful island located around 60 minutes from the central city, Padang, West Sumatra. I think it was the most peaceful island I’ve ever visited in my life. It has white sand and when you take a walk on the sand it feels very soft and smooth. The water is azure and clean. From the sea shore you can see the color of the water changing from light blue into dark blue. In the crystal clear water of pulau Pagang we can go snorkeling and watch many fish species swimming around. If you feel tired of swimming, put some lotion and then lie down on the beach and feel the warmth of the sun. It is so relaxing!
2. Pulau Sikuai (Sikuai island)
This island is located quite close (around 20 minutes) to pulau Pagang. It also has white sand and blue water. What makes it different from pulau Pagang is that we can go around the island by bike or just walk where we can see the whole view around the island. On the one side you will see hills and big island meanwhile on the other side you can see the Indian ocean. It’s very magnificent!
Who doesn’t know Bali? It is known both as the island of thousand temples and the island of paradise. There are many beautiful beaches you can go to. But I only want to share one of the beaches that I have ever visited with my friends a couple of years ago. The beach is called the Dreamland. I don’t know why they call this beach Dreamland. But the thing that I know and will never forget about it is how magnificent the view is. It not only has beautiful beach, white sand and blue water but it also has big waves which are high enough for you to go surfing. It is a perfect place for both the ones who admire beauty and challenge.
What do you think about it? Any plan to go to some hot beaches? Or have you already visited any? Please share your comments with us.
