Pasir Panjang A white sandy beach
in the heart of Kupang...

Why is Pasir Panjang so special?

Pasir Panjang is a stretch of white sandy beach located right in the heart of Kupang City...

If your time in Kupang is limited and you need to get some sand between your toes and the smell of the sea in your lungs then this beach is the best option...

Pasir Panjang FAQs

Will I have time?

It's less than a 5 minute walk from your hotel room at either Aston, On The Rock, M Hotel, Sotis or Swiss Bel-inn Kristal... Alternativly a 5-10 min car ride from further out of town hotels in Kupang will get you there... If you have the choice then afternoons produce great sunset photos...

Hotel Swiss-belinn Kristal marks the most western tip of Pasir Panjang Beach and Hotel On The Rock is at it's most eastern end... It's very close to the center of the city so anywhere you are, you can take a quick break on the beach... Most taxi drivers and locals know it as PANTAI PASIR PANJANG...

Anything to remember?

If you were planning to swim and you can choose the time of day then try to go at HIGH TIDE... If laying on a beach towel and making sand castles are your thing then try to visit closer to LOW TIDE to maximize the sand and beach area... Sun protection will always be a consideration...

How do I get there?

Pasir Panjang is easy to find... It runs parallel to Jalan Timor Raya starting from hotel Swiss Bel-inn Kristal running 1,700 meters ending just before hotel On The Rock... 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?

From Kupang city Pasir Panjang is the cheapest white sandy beach to visit as it's literally on your doorstep minimizing your transportation costs... A standard hotel rental Taxi has a IDR70k one way minimal charge so Grab Car may be the cheaper option at about half this price...

What can I do there?

With saving so much time on transportation your options are endless... Take a walk alone the shoreline - please note the entire 1,700 meters of beach is divided into 3 shorter sections of beach separated by 2 small rocky outcrops that can be passed easily by walking over the top...

Best season and best time of day

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...

There is no physical entrance gate so no restrictions there...

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