Beneath the shadow of the hulking, metropolis-scale hotel, golf course and condo development that sprawls across the Bukit from Balangan to Bingin, this once tranquil beach is now a tourist hotspot, with all mod cons, but very little soul. The wave is well suited to the masses, offering a short left wall and shouldering right off the peak, over a sandy reef platform that is good and deep. Best at low tides, otherwise it is a fat shoredump. Uninspiring in small swell and sideshore winds, overhead conditions can barrel and challenge the constant crowd of mixed ability.
