“Very dirty”
Review of Air Manis Beach

Air Manis Beach
Ranked #9 of 53 things to do in Padang
Attraction details
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

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

This is a decent beach, but not great. The real highlight is that at low tide you can walk in thigh deep water to an island that sits about 200 meters off shore.

Malin Kundang is a Minangkabau legend. It told about a seditious boy who did not want to admit a poor lady as his biological mother. Then he was cursed into a stone. You may see the stone on the Air Manis Beach. However it's dirty, we can see garbage every where.

the beach was so nice, its very clean and you can even see the bottom of the ocean even when you are quite far from the shore, the only drawback is its kinda hard to reach
