About Pangandaran

The long crescent of sand at Pangandaran Beach is home to seemingly endless beachbreaks that face S/SW so receive all available swell and are almost never flat. The set-up is remarkably similar to the Kuta/Legian beachbreaks in Bali, with wave quality depending on sandbank shape and swell size (closeouts are common with swells over 4’). During the dry season the sandbanks at Airports near the airstrip are best early mornings before the SE trades mess it up, and the waves get progressively smaller and cleaner as you head up the beach towards the nature reserve, making it a perfect learning curve.
