But today, the bamboo bridge has already been replaced with steel suspension bridge though only 2-wheel vehicle can cross the bridge. Today there are so many places or houses offering their space as the place to stay and spend the night. And many of them has already transformed from regular houses to home-stay. Today Sawarna has already too crowded especially on the weekends.
And because of this very reason, as happen anywhere else in Indonesia: where the place is overcrowded of visitors, there will be lots of garbage lying around. It’s really a shame of us, Indonesian people. I hope the future generations will somewhat appreciate the environment better that today’s generation. It’s really a shame the beach as beautiful as Sawarna, got polluted by domestic garbage and trash where you can see almost everywhere alongside Sawarna beach!
Let’s talk about the beach. The beach is famous among surfers especially from Europe. The wave is like a magnet to them. So, though the place kind of remote from big cities, but you can easily meet westerners in this place of attraction.
From that many choices of home stay, Widi Home stay is the best you can get. The facility is limited, with two king size bed set on the floor and one small bathroom without hot water. But at least the room is equipped with AC which you will need it when the temperature getting hotter and reach its peak in the afternoon. The price is considerably very cheap, because you get 3-time heavy meal every day; breakfast, lunch and dinner of home cooked meal, Sundanese style. The drinking water is free and you even get the refrigerated drinking water for free.
Don’t forget to bring mosquito repellent solution or anything that can keep mosquito away from you since to mosquito, this place is also their paradise.
