Patawana Beach

It is the typical sight at many beaches in Indonesia: clean, blue water with white sand beach flanked by waving coconut trees, it seems ready to go on a postcard.

You can not only enjoy the above water scenery here but also underwater as the sea is rich in coral and fishes. Although fishermen in the Patawana Beach area hunt for fish, the ecosystem is still natural and well preserved. Many birds fly around the beach, the forest behind the beach is still pristine.
