The beach is dirty by the time of my visit and the locals are cleaning it. Perhaps it because the strong current from the Indian Ocean, same problem as in Kuta Beach Bali.

This beach should be spectacular, but everyone leaves trash all over it, so it's gross. I think it's still fun to go and see the surfers and the island, but everyone needs to do their part to keep the beach clean. A real shame.

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...

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

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 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,...More
