This beach is about 20km+ away from city. Hiring a cab costs Rph100,000 round trip. There, you cannot do a lot since the beach is quite small and has nothing to see. The thing that I suggest is take a boat, an one engine boat and go to any one of the offshore island. It's like a HEAVEN in the middle of nowhere. It was so beautiful that all of us agreeed that we should have spent a night there. Sadly, we were lack of time; we were there only less than an hour. It was really funny that we spent 3.5hrs to arrive the heaven while spent only 1 hr in heave. The price to hire a boat is about USD15~20 per day. Our sailor was very seasoned who knew how to avoid the strong waves. It was quite a smooth trip, at least I felt comfortable.
Most things chocolate - In Bukittinggi?
If you are someone into chocolates, go to 6A Serba Coklat. Take a left from Novotel Butkittinggi and 150m down the road on the right. The chocolate brownies are very good indeed.
