The idyllic fishing village and surfing hot spot of Batu Karas is 32km west of Pangandaran, and is one of the most enjoyable places to kick back in Java. It’s as pretty as a picture – a tiny one-lane settlement, with two beaches that are separated by a wooded promontory. In recent years Batu Karas popularity has started to take off as more (very tasteful) guesthouses have opened, but the village still retains a low-key, very relaxed charm. There´s great swimming, with sheltered sections that are calm enough for a dip, but many visitors are here for the surf breaks, and there’s always a lot of surf talk.
Green Canyon is a popular tourist destination in the vicinity. Tours can be organized easily.
Waves at Batu Karas are generally soft and this makes it ideal for beginners.
Learning to surf is the main attraction in Batu Karas. The main beach has a soft right point break that is perfect for learning. There are a few other more advanced breaks in the area though swell consistency is not as strong as in other parts of Indonesia. But good waves to be had if you explore.
Surfboards can be rented on the main beach for 50,000 - 75,000 per day, with cheaper rates for longer rental periods. Rental board quality is quite standard, but the softness of the wave means most rentals are longboards.
There are no ATMs in Batu Karas, so be sure to pick up some cash in Cijulang or Pangandaran before you arrive. Shops are few which means you will need to bargain with the local warungs for basic supplies. There is a pharmacy with limited supplies. There are a couple of surf shops selling new boards, board shorts, wax, and other basic surf necessities.
