What do you love most about Pangandaran Regency?

"Talking to the locals and playing football with them, laughing with them and sharing stories despite their English isn't the best is probably my favourite part of visiting Pangandaran."

Are there many tourists?

"I was walking on the main beach for 2 hours and didn't see one other tourist. I was doing a tour the next day and we were in a very small group of 5 foreigners. I love being 'the only' tourist! "

Must pack items for Bali

"Don't forget to bring warmer clothes! Especially in Northern Bali, it can get colder and you will need a jacket for sure! This photo was taken on top of a mountain and trust me, it was pretty cold..."

Bonus...

"Combine your Bali trip with a few days on Nusa Penida. Every photographer wants to take a photo of the T-rex-shaped cliff but... watch out when flying your drone. The signal is very sketchy!"
