Palm Beach in Singkawang City, West Kalimantan Province
Some passionate travelers perhaps have an interest in visiting Singkawang City someday. It is because they have recognized the tourism potential of the region and heard good things about it. Well, it is true. Singkawang never disappoints visitors especially when it comes to natural attractions. Let’s take an example. There is Palm Beach, which is one of the best shores there. The location is in Sedau Village and it resides in South Singkawang Sub-District. Not only it is beautiful, but the beach also has a strategic location (which resides near to other famous beaches) especially Pasir Panjang Beach.
For the information, Palm Beach has become an official tourist site in Singkawang City. No wonder, visitors need to pay an entrance fee in order to enjoy a vacation on the site. Have no worries. It is worth the money. The first impressive allure is the light yellow shoreline with its soft texture. What is more? The beach also comes with small waves, so everyone is allowed to swim in the sea. As for the features, some big rocks scatter by the shore on where tourists can sit and enjoy photography. Another facility is a formation of gazebos that tourists can use either for relaxation or keep their belongings.
Exploring Palm Beach
Beach walking is the most recommended thing that tourists must do in Palm Beach. Thanks to the soft texture and exotic-colored sand. Everyone can walk on the shoreline either with or without footwear. One thing, this must be done either in the morning or afternoon. The purpose is to avoid the heat of the sun. Aside from beach walking, tourists can take advantage of the shoreline to play sand and build a sand castle! These would become a nice family activity, so make sure to come with your family members.
What is next? Swimming is also popular there. It is because Palm Beach doesn’t feature big waves, so people can swim in the sea safely and comfortably. Even kids are allowed to get in the water as long as they use a water tube and get the supervision from their parents. Here is the tip. They should enjoy swimming during the low tide since it is safer and more comfortable.
The next impressive allure in Palm Beach is the complete facility that tourists can use. Located near to the site, tourists may find hotels, a swimming pool, camping ground, eateries, and even kids’ playground! Thus, everyone should take advantage of those facilities to maximize their fun when exploring the beach. Do not forget to carry extra cash to pay for those facilities, though.
