What takes me so long to find this place? a nature lover could keep wondering when he or she visits the beautiful and virgin beach of Pelang. Saying that the place is a Kuta, a Niagara, and a Karangbolong in a package, could be exaggerating. But, come on! Where in the world could you find a beautiful beach, a natural fountain, and an unexplored cave within the radius of three hundred meters? Where else could you possibly stand under a soothing natural fountain right after stepping out from the sea? Only at Pelang can you spend your leisure time, lying on the white sand, listening to the poetry of the sea without being interrupted by curious beach bums, masseurs, or souvenir vendors, And to think of exploring the stunning cave!
Situated at the district of Panggung, Pelang is a nice place to visit, especially for those who are not too obsessive about luxury. This is a place so quiet that you can hear the voice of swallows between the rhythm of the waves that are similar to the ones of Kuta Beach. There is no restaurants and there is no hotel around Pelang. If you want to spend the night on the beach., you have to bring your own tents or sleeping bags and you own food.
Along the hilly road to Pelang, you will enjoy the scenery of hills at a very unique configuration. One of the hills, from a distance, looks just like a giant pole towering among the others. You'd think that you'd never be able to get close to it. But, when you get to Dongko, the highest spot on the route, that hill is right beside you, like a pin that could have been installed by Mother Nature to keep the earth stable. The existence of this place is spread only from mouth to mouth. Local government should do something to promote this place and to provide a better transportation system. Once you lie on the beach, close your eyes and listen to the voice of nature.
