Watu Karung Beach is known for its pristine nature, soft white sand, sweeping panoramas, and big blue waves that attract surfers. Look for a rock formation that resembles the head of a longhaired woman, and bring your own food and beverages if you wish to picnic here, as there are no restaurants nearby. Because of the waves, the sea is not suitable for swimming, but you can boat or fish. The sunsets at this location are truly special, and the night sky over the beach is speckled with millions of stars.

Watu Karung Beach reviews
One of the greatest surfing spot in Indonesia. Many pro surfers have come here. There is also a good resort here. Sunset also amazing from here. more »
Beautiful view, great for pictures, amazing waves (left and right) , a bit dangerous for swimmers. Don't swim to far as you will end up being saved by fishermen like I did. more »
Just another beautiful beach in pacitan East Java.this beach is perfect for the one who like to do surfing,it’s a cool beach,the wave is just perfect..but just little advice from my side always extra careful,coz you don’t know how big or how huge the wave is coming...if you’re just amateur like me,bring your best partner to watching over you... And anyway this beach is already complete with local people’s the one who ready to serve you some meals and beverages..that’s great right,,??? Have fun guys,,,,and take care....
Watukarung Beach is the most favourite surfing spot in Pacitan. The beach and the sea are clean, and the wave is safe enough for surfing. The depth of the beach is about 1,5 m and stretch for about 500 m to the sea, thus surfer can looks for big waves from the edge of the sea. There is also an outlook post in this beach, which enables us to see the overground view. Lots of food shop along the beach, and one seafood restaurant is famous for tourist. The surface of the beach is hard sand, so swim with a footware for safety measure.
