Parbaba Beach is the best and busiest beach on Samosir island. It has been a popular venue for volcano sports such as kayaking, canoeing, and beach volleyball. Nearby hotels and independent operators offer a variety of rides such as banana boats, jet skis, water bikes, rowing boats, and tires. The waves are modest. You can also avoid the water and just stay on the beach.
While sunbathing under the sunshine or hiding under a fancy tent, you can enjoy coconut drinks and some Batak culinary as well.
What to Expect
Make sure you book the right accommodations by the beach. Otherwise, you will end up going to the public area of the beach only. The area also has restaurants, souvenirs, and tents, but it is less clean than the private beach. Entrance is free.
