Tanjung Setia Beach

About 2km south of the town is Tanjung Setia beach a popular destination for international surfers and domestic tourists in search of an uncrowded beachside holiday.

The beach is about 5km long and on a low tide you can walk around the headland past the Ujung Bocur / Karang Nyimbur surf break exploring the rock pools all the way to Biha. At Biha you have to cross a small river, which requires heading off the beach for 200mtrs and cross at the hanging bridge. It is not recommended that you wade across the river, as the current can be stronger than it looks and dangerous items may have been washed into the river.

Not so long ago (2013) Tanjung Setia beach was on a quiet coconut lined dirt road that faded out into a dirt track before Biha, now it has a sealed road along which you will find a selection of accommodation and caf├ęs, a fully equipped gym, a couple of souvenir shops and an ATM machine next to Lovina Krui Surf Camp.
