Pasir Panjang

What is unique about this beach???

Pasir Panjang Beach is a long stretch of white sandy coastline well away from the hustle and bustle of Kupang City...

The beach is rather secluded and often deserted with minimal government or tourism facilities there which for some is a good thing...

FAQ about Pasir Panjang

Will I have time???

A 15-20 minute car ride from most hotels in Kupang will get you there... How long you spend there is totally up to you... Total time 2-3 hours from the time you start would be minimal... If you head there in the afternoon, try to stay until sunset as it's a winner...

Where exactly is it???

Located North 5km from Kupang following mostly through the city... It's very close to the center of the city so anywhere you are, you can take a quick break watching the beautiful sun set on the beach... Most taxi drivers and locals know it as PANTAI PASIR PANJANG...

Anything I should remember???

Being a long white sandy beach, one concern would definitely be sun protection so make sure you not only put on ample amounts of suncream before you head off but also periodically during your time there even if it's cloudy...

How do I get there???

It may be possible to catch a village bound bemo or bus towards the general direction but none will pass directly in front of the entrance... Your best chance to get there is by either local taxi (ask your hotel reception) or by yourself with rental motorbikes...

How much will it cost???

The rental Taxi most expensive of the transport options at IDR100k - IDR150k... Cheaper options such as grab are a good alternative if you have time to wait for their arrival... Grab Bike is the cheapest option at IDR10k-IDR20k and Grab Car at IDR25k-IDR35k...

What can I do there???

If you have seen the pictures then you know that some activities could include, beach walking, swimming, sun bathing, taking beautiful photos, snorkeling, shell collecting or simply relaxing on a towel and enjoying the atmosphere...

What's the best season or time of day to visit???

Timing can make the difference...

Pasir Panjang Beach can be visited all year and is never closed to the public...

Expect more chance of rain or cloudy weather during the monsoon season which unofficially is from mid-December until mid-March even a cloudy day down at Pasir Panjang Beach is a good day...

Because of the heat of the mid-day sun you should be careful between the hours of 9am - 3pm where the chance of severe sunburn is greatest...

The entrance gate opens early in the morning until after dark so no restrictions there...

Sunsets can be quite beautiful viewed from Tabolong Beach so if you're there in the afternoon you may wish to wait until sunset and maybe catch that perfect beach/sunset photograph...

If you're wanting to go when there is almost no-one there you should avoid Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as it can be quite busy on those days...
