The beach offers swimming and natural scenery in a unique environment. Children are hunting for coins on the beach, relying on their sight across the clear water. They will ask you to throw coins into the lake. They are then rushing to plunge into the water and compete to find and pick up the coins. The beach also has many local restaurants. They serve Batak culinary such as the typical grilled fish, curry goldfish, and spicy Mujair. The fish is caught on request directly from Lake Toba. There are also many cafes with elegant designs that serve a variety of drinks including tuak (Batak wine).
What to Expect
During the rainy season and especially at night, the weather can sometimes get freezing. Bring your jacket if you go out to the beach at night. The roads are small in some directions, so remind the driver to be extra careful.
