The only good thing about Santolo is: they have a beach that we can walk until far further and the water still around our ankle or below knees. The bad part is: DIRTY AS HELL, the lodging around this beach is below standard, people next...More

Located in Pamengpeuk on the south coast of the Garut Regency, West Java, the beach has white beach and wonderful scenery. Waves are quite strong and makes it rather difficult to swim. The biggest concern is, though, both locals and visitors do not seem to...More
