Ujung Genteng

Located approximately 3 hr drive further south from Pelabuhan ratu. Ujung Genteng has a beautiful untapped creamy sandy beach. At night you can go to Pangumbahan beach to watch turtle come to shore to lay eggs on the sandy beach. Ujung Genteng is a turtle conservation area. Sadly in reality, they never really put the eggs in hatchery, and more often sell the eggs in the market.

there's an informative article I found on WWF site.

Saving our Global Voyagers:
Help WWF & Canon to Save the Marine Turtles
Marine turtles have travelled the sea for over 100 million years. Today, six of the seven species of marine turtles are listed as endangered or critically endangered, and the outlook is increasingly grim. Turtle populations are in steep decline in many areas, as nesting beaches are converted to holiday resorts, turtles and their eggs are over-harvested for food, and turtles are accidentally caught and killed in fishing nets.

As a result of the reduction in marine turtles, both ecosystems and people are suffering. Coral reefs and sea grass beds are among the marine ecosystems becoming unbalanced as marine turtles decline. Opportunities to create sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities through ecotourism are rapidly disappearing in many places as turtle populations plummet. The cultural importance attached to marine turtles will also fade. Only global conservation effort will ensure their survival.

this river is formed during high tide and will be dry in low tide. You'd have to cross this river when going to Pabumbahan beach for turtle watching. You can take Ojek or motorcycle taxi, the common local transportation. The distance from Pondok Hexa (tHexa Cottage) is about 6 km.

    Good move! Next time remember that on VT Indonesian place names that are 2 words are often written as one word. They just don't know Indonesian! :p
