Why Pantai Sundak is special ?
Pantai Sundak or Sundak Beach does not only have enchanting natural view but it also keeps story. The name Sundak turns to experience evolution of which evidences can be traced geologically. Before 1930 the above area was still under sea water. The story tells that sea water reached the area where the mosque stands now and the cave was submerged in sea water. In line with geological process in the south sea, the sea water level decreased and sea water stood out more to the sea. The coral reef and the area around the mosque became new land that later coastal people used it for economy activities until today.

what a beautiful beach :DD
Klo dtg hari kerja, pantainya bener2 sepi. Serasa milik pribadi..
This place is dirty and litter-strewn, coaches of tourists make this place somewhere to avoid. don't go there in the week;)
i visited this beach with my six years old daughter who loves beach and her 18 years old brother who likes taking photos. the beach is great for both interests. the beach is clean, the people and environment is friendly. the only improvement would be the signage to the location, bath/restroom that needs upgrading (clean and tidy but not to the standard of my kids), also signs for dangerous areas are not clear/visible some simply dont exist.
the beach is nice with white sand and turquoise blue water but the wave is too strong and we can not swimming due to wild current and rocky beach but still nice place to be if you love beach. and so many beach nearby but mostly we can not swim there.
You have to take private car or rent motor to reach this place, cause you need around 2hour to go there, better also not go in weekend, cause will be lots of of people visit, my advice please take care the nature, take care the environment !
Amazing beach :)
