Cepi Watu Beach

Although not a typical beach to spread one’s towel, Cepi Watu has its own charms. A popular hangout place among the locals, it is definitely a worthwhile spot to enrich your stay in Borong.

 

The beach is interspersed with round, medium-sized black stones, which at certain times  are covered by sand. Depending on the sun’s angle of entry, Cepi Watu offers a unique ambience of light and color. There is also a natural spring where fresh water comes out from a hole in the stones. The locals sometimes come here to fetch water for their daily needs.

From the eastern part of the beach, a beautiful panoramic view of Mount Ndeki invites one to take photos. There, you may walk to the mangrove forests or to the place where local fishermen park their boats. From time to time, public events and traditional ceremonies are held at the beach where the local government has built a concrete stage with a spacious arena and a house in the Manggaraian architectural style.

 

Facilities

Borong, the capital of Manggarai Timur, offers a small range of accommodation, restaurants, and warung (small restaurants or food stalls).
