Muara Beting Beach in Bekasi City, West Java Province
Muara Beting is the sibling of Muara Gembong Beach as they are located near to each other. Not to mention both of them reside in the same area, which is Muara Gembong Sub-District. So, what makes Beting different? Many people agree that the beach has a more open and relaxing nuance as compared to its sibling. It is because the density of mangroves is lower than it. That means visitors can enjoy beach walking and relaxation in a more comfortable manner! Plus, the beach offers exotic sea scenery and comfy warm wind.
In terms of nuance, Muara Beting has a wider shoreline which is perfect for playing sand and beach walking. When it comes to the sea, the waves look calm and luring. This explains why the beach is suitable for swimming and water sports. In the back, several trees and mangroves grow scarcely. Somehow, the site is less shady than Muara Gembong so tourists must avoid coming at noon. As for the facilities, tourists can only find a parking area located a little bit far from the shoreline.
Exploring Muara Beting Beach
Once arriving at Muara Beting Beach, tourists can directly explore the shoreline and conduct beach walking on it. The sand is soft and the wind is quite breezy. This activity even becomes more comfortable to do if tourists come early in the morning! As an alternative, tourists can enjoy beach walking in the afternoon while waiting for the beautiful sunset. For a better experience, it is also recommended to do it with either friends or families. It, somehow, helps them to build a stronger relationship with those people.
Well, beach walking is not the only activity that tourists can enjoy in Muara Beting Beach. The next popular thing to do is to explore a nearby mangrove forest. It has the total size of about 70 hectares and people are allowed to enter the location freely. Here is the tip. The best time to visit the forests is in September. It is because many tropical birds often drop by and rest there. Thus, tourists have the chance to take photos of those birds while exploring the site.
Not only those birds may gather in the mangrove forest, but they also come to the beach sometimes. For those who come at the wrong time (where there are no birds), they can look for other beautiful objects and animals. For instance, there are small shells scattered on the shoreline. In fact, tourists can collect them freely!
