Pantai Panjang, translated to mean Long Beach, boasts a coastline of fine, white sands that stretches 7 kilometers. As the beach has no reefs, its width expands to 500 meters when the tide is low.The beach area is a central tourism district and is lined with restaurants, hotels, cottages and shops. Pantai Panjang is located just 15 minutes from downtown Bengkulu, Southwest of the island of Sumatera.
Unlike many beaches, Pantai Panjang has no coconut or palm trees, but is dominated by Spruces and Pines which create a lovely shelter for beach-goers to rest and relax under. As a prime tourist area, a variety of facilities are positioned along the beach such as restaurants, cafes, accommodations, a children’s playground as well as sports facilities.
The Bengkulu community also uses the beach as a place for jogging in the mornings and evenings.
Pantai Panjang is located to the west of the city along Jalan Parawisata Kota Bengkulu. The beach is just 1.5 kilometers from the city center and is easily accessible by car, minibus, taxi or motorcycle.
Public transportation is available at all times, or you could try the more traditional forms of transportation such as the horse carts and carriages.
