Beach Caves



While at Pangandaran (see my post yesterday), I also had the time to explore some beach caves and admire their beauty. This one is at Batu Hiu, a rocky beach some fourteen kilometers to the south of Pangandaran where we lodged.

The name Batu Hiu (literally: shark's rock) is derived from a piece of rock shaped like a shark located some 200 meters off the beach (see the photo below).

This is indeed an exquisitely framed photo of a very nice spot.

Better that the rocks are named for sharks than having real sharks near the beach.

The ocean cave photo is particularly cool! To see the light outside from inside!
