Timang beach was mean to be a nonprofit touristy object. The residences there claim this beautiful beach purposed to be a lobster collector only. There is something people can not stop, it is technology. Since this amazing beach become famous on the internet, tourist repeatedly coming to this beach.
What to do at Timang Beach?
As I know, the first tourist who came to this beach at the first time was an International tourist in 2009. Until this blog was posted, the infrastructure, road access even the hygiene facilities were not developed well. I did not blame anyone for this, sometimes a bad condition keeps good things live longer. Sometimes it is become a difficult duty to make some place pure as it does. This is just an analogy, more people come arrive, more trash people will throw. So, in my humble opinion, it is a good thing to postpone all the development to keep all these habitat lives longer. More they catch the lobster, cheaper the lobster we can buy.
Long drive country side road
Timang beach citizens are still under the supervision of Indonesia Tourism Department and Department of Fisheries. They gradually do the counseling to make Timang beach more enjoyable to anyone who comes to visit this fantastic beach.
Visitors can test their courage by crossing onto Watu Panjang island on a wooden ‘cable cart’ tied together on pulleys, not with the usual steel cables, but with fabric rope. Originally used as a means of transportation by local lobster fishermen, those brave enough to endure dangling above treacherous waves can even bring back a lobster for dinner.
