This Batu Hiu beach is located in the area of Ciliang Village in Pangandaran, West Java. There’s a reason behind the naming of this beach.
As you can see, there’s a big stone that present on the area that looks really similar to shark fins. That’s why, people are naming the beach, the shark fin beach (Batu Hiu). Usually, people are going up to the hill to see the full form of the shark fin stones. But aside from that, the beach serves a one of a kind natural view.
2 – Batu Karas Beach
The next beach in the article of best beaches in Java Indonesia is Batu Karas Beach. This is one of many beachs that has the name of “Batu” in them. However, this Batu Karas Beach is located still in Pangandaran area of West Java, not that far from the Pangandaran Beach. The exact location of this beach is Batu Karas village in Cijulang.

The beach is located hidden after the thick forest just after the village. You need to take a trip for about 2 km long from the village to the beach to be able to reach this beautiful beach.
