Padang Padang Beach - You know it from Eat Pray Love
Padang Padang is commonly known from the famous movie Eat Pray Love. This narrow beach, located in Pecatu, is clearly a surfers Paradise.
After a fairly long stair walk you will arrive at a wonderful white sand beach, inviting you to lay down and soak up the sun with the surfers whilst watching them have fun in the waves.
During the rainy season the water is more polluted with plastic than through the dry season.
It is a safe beach and can be recommended to families with kids as well.
From time to time you might bump into a drunken crowd of surfers, try to relax and handle the situation.
If you are a single traveller looking for connections, it is probably a good place to stay.
