The road is so bad, I couldn't understand why the government didn't repair the road. It takes about 2 hours of really bad road, and all I can do is just keep holding of the bad shock from the car. The people there could not speak Malay or English, and it makes my day worse on Ujung Genteng

Actually I went to Ujung genteng in 2011 (late review)
it took us almost 7 hrs to get to Ujung Genteng. We visited tea plantation along the way, refreshing!
The beaches are not as beautiful as Sawarna, i must say
But I love Cikaso Waterfall whish is located around the neighborhood:)
it was fun as i went there with my buddies. We also went to Turtle beach, it was amazing to watch those turtle laying eggs:)

I was visited April last year to Ujung Genteng in a group around 20peoples. We in a different type of tour, mostly tour to Ujung Genteng were visited Pangumbahan (turtle conservation), etc. We went to Ombak Tujuh and the most far beaches on Ujung Genteng Area. We went there by ojek and riding 2hours up and down hill, enter the forest and then found a blue beaches with big waves and it can reach 7 meters, thats why they called it "Ombak Tujuh = seven waves". Great place for surfer and for everyone who hungry with the real adventure to find hidden paradise. Since 2 hours one way on motorbike accross the forest and the road was on in a good shape. Full of pain but worth it since you will find beaches with blue water and no tourist. The ojek cost me IDR 150.000 return, and since i was join with group, the whole trip cost me IDR 650.000 include transport from jakarta,homestay, and meals. A lot of homestay on Ujung Genteng with variation of room and facility start from IDR 80.000, so you can choose based on your budget. Don't forget to go to the Cikaso waterfalls too, not too far from Ujung Genteng. Once you arrive on the entrance gate you have to go by small boat to the watrfalls, possible to swim too.

It was a long road-trip from Jakarta to Ujung Genteng, 200 km 7 hours drive. We took Sukabumi route when going, and Pelabuhan Ratu route when coming back. The road track of Jakarta - Sukabumi or Pelabuhan Ratu was smooth. After those points, it was winding and bumpy :)) Hard-core, Man! But we enjoyed it thoroughly; beautiful sceneries taking turn. Sukabumi route offered forest view, tea plantation and misty hills from faraway. While Pelabuhan Ratu route added Seaside view at some points, nice ...

Arrived at Ujung Genteng quite late in the afternoon, because we stopped by Cikaso Fall first. Once we entered the entrance gate of Ujung Genteng, the view changed to palm trees, and grassland where cows grazing, with back ground of turquoise blue sea and waves running to the coast. Sooo beautiful!

We drove until Pangumbahan beach, and decided to stay at one simple lodging there, quite close to the Turtle Conservation Centre. The beach in front of our lodging was very beautiful; golden sands, corals spreading along coast line, fishing boats getting ready to sail, some people were fishing on a plain, few hundreds meters from coast line. Surfers were quite many, surfing the Pangumbahan waves. Had a nice chat with some of them, surfers who came from Barcelona-Spain.

Spotted many sea side creatures living in the coast line corals i.e crabs, sea urchins, starfishes, shrimps, whelks … cute!

Sunset was definitely amazing!

Around 5.30 p.m, the Turtle Conservation Centre released baby turtles to the sea. Then starting from 9 p.m, could spot mature turtles starting to lay eggs on the coast sands. A must see!

We had a fabulous dinner of grilled-fresh-salt-water-fish at the seaside, accompanied by the sound of the waves and cool breezing winds. Good appetite, ate a lot, haha!

Dawn broke very early in the morning. Sky was already pinkish around 5.30 a.m. After the high tides during the night, many Porcupinefishes were stranded on the sands. Fishing boats returning from sea, with barrels of fishes, catch of the night. Not too long, all were sold out, mostly to the restaurants owners along coast line.

After a very nice morning coffee on the beach, we started the trip back home. All in all, it was an unforgettable place, Ujung Genteng. Plan to go back soon …

Ujung Genteng is located about 200km from Jakarta, i went there by motorcycle, it takes about 7 hours driving from jakarta. the trip to Ujung Genteng is very interesting, drive through pine forests, tea garden and windings road. the long trip will be pay off with a beautiful view. when we almost reach Ujung genteng, in our left side of the road, we could see the ocean, grass with cows spread on it, so beautiful. I stayed at Pangumbahan beach, from this beach is closer to watch the turtle nesting at night. if you stay at Ujun Genteng beach, rather far to the turtle conservation. Lucky me, i saw green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) nesting at 01.00, it's really amazing moment. ujung gentang and pangumbahan beach are beaches with coral spread along the seaside, be careful if you swim on it, sometimes there have current wave.
