Peucang Island is truly like a glimpse of heaven. Beautiful and calm. On the south side of the island, there is a lovely coastline. The sand is white and very smooth. When the sun is high and bright enough, the color of the sea changes to magnificent blue. Near the coastline, the color of the water changes to turquoise. The Ujung Kulon Peninsula stretches across the coast, becoming a natural fence that keeps the seawater around this southern coast calm. Seawater only ripples, there are never any waves that exceed the knee of adults.

While walking along the beach, you might be surprised by a peacock who was also surprised to meet a human and immediately ran into the forest. Their large and strange voices then heard, perhaps warning the others.

The monitor lizards are also often seen walking cautiously even though no one is threatening.
