Tanjung Lesung is awfully beautiful virgin fantastic beach at the western end of Java, Indonesia.

Slightly bulging from the mainland of Java into the Sunda Straits is Tanjung Lesung, located on Java’s most western coast in the district of Pandeglang in the province of Banten, the Tanjung Lesung resembles the lesung, which in the local Sundanese language means the receptacle for rice pounding.

This huge 1,500 hectares area of Tanjung Lesung has been developed by the Banten West Java Tourism Development Corporation (BWJ) since 1996, patterned after the famed Nusa Dua Resort in Bali. The resort is envisaged to contain top range hotels and restaurants, a convention hall, a number of golf courses, marina and theme park. 

Today, Tanjung Lesung offers a perfect place to lay back and immerse oneself in the beauty of nature found along the vast stretch of soft white sandy beaches, clear and calm blue waters, and fresh tropical breezes. The 15kms shoreline is the perfect place for various beach activities such as beach volley, beach football, or just  lie down under the indulging sunshine.The beach also radiates a romantic atmosphere. For couples, it can be the best place to stroll down the quiet beach, or share the spectacular view of the sun setting over the horizon. Over the years, the beach has also been a favorite for honeymooners who love to spend their time in their choice hotels and cottages.

The geographic position of Cape Tanjung Lesung does not directly face the Indian Ocean, and therefore its waters are relatively calm and are perfect for swimming and other water activities such as Jet skiing, or boating. The magnificent scenery of Tanjung Lesung also lies beneath the surface. Beautiful coral reefs, decorated with colorful fish and seafloor dwellers make this a perfect spot for snorkeling and Diving. For those who enjoy the sensation of reeling in the big fish, there are many fishing spots that await off the coast of Tanjung Lesung.
