Many reasons make Marina Beach is the best one as compared to others. For instance, it offers a complete facility and accommodation including toilets, parking area, eateries, boat services, and much more.

Exploring Marina Beach
For the Indonesian locals or nearby residents, Marina Beach becomes a perfect place to spend a family recreation. The first thing that they can do is to ride a passenger boat and explore the shore comfortably. Have no worries. The fee is quite affordable and it is available every day, especially at noon. For outsiders or tourists, this indeed becomes a distinct experience and gives fun as well.

During the high tide, though, the waves become stronger. Thus, it is better to go fishing during the low tide and in a good weather only. When it comes to the equipment, tourists should carry their own fishing rod and baits indeed. They won’t find any service that rents out the equipment, after all.
What is more? Marina Beach also has lots of food vendors offering various types of snacks, foods, and drinks. No wonder, a family recreation feels so comfortable there. Tourists also need to carry more cash if they want to try all those foods! The sound of the waves and breezy wind may accompany them while eating! What a great way to spend a vacation, no?
