“Need more attention”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This beach is just great....The local goverment needs to be attentive to this beautiful beach....

The local community have to take care the cleanliness of this public place...

You still can find the ruin of the Malin Kundang site on this place...

The beach is oke.

“Not so sweet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Simply avoid this dirty beach. Not worth the trip there or back! Lots of trash, stray cats, dog and goats. No real facilities.

“Very dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Sadly it seems that trying to find a clean white beach becomes harder and harder since the waves bring back garbages from the sea. It is especially the case for Air Manis Beach which is covered by it. However the surrounding remains splendid

“Clean beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This beach is famous due to Malin Kundang legend. When I got here, the beach was clean and nice. There are statue that claimed to be Malin's body, but somehow, I think it was made from cement. Visitors are not allowed to take picture using digital camera, but it's okay to take a shot with cell phone camera
