All the locals are very friendly and the way to get there is very scenic. You can buy some food on the beach and make friends with the locals who are all very welcoming.

the same experience when i went to air manis beach and pantai padang. yes,, hygiene. the place was good. you can see the legend of Malin Kundang there but, this place is not treated properly. seems garbage has always been a problem in some beaches I ever went on kotapadang. too bad because the beach is well known sweet water with Malin Kundang legend. many people who want to come there but if hygiene is not maintained beach, this potential will not produce a good income for west Sumatra

been here many times and nowadays are not as beautiful as before. like many other beach in padang, they are not taken care of. stray dogs and hawkers are quite disturbing. those hawkers need to be managed properly.

Trash everywhere and the bridge for walking to the beach is broken and looks abandoned. The rocks that personifies Malin Kundang and his boat are not well maintained. This shows the city government does not care at all.

This place is one of the iconic statue in Padang, beside Jam Gadang. As you can browse the history from google, this beach is quite hot and mystic. Not recommended to visit over than 2 hours because nothing to do here, it's just a beach with famous legendary statue.
