Exploring Keusik Luhur Beach
The beauty of Keusik Luhur Beach represents similar characteristics to that of Tanah Lot in Bali. Knowing this fact, tourists are likely to take pictures in front of such majestic natural attraction. The hill is indeed tall and it has the steepness of about 90 degrees. The best part is that tourists are allowed to climb the hill and witness a better view from above. The breezy wind and the sound of the waves make it more interesting, as well. From the top of the hill, the sky and sea panorama appears the most beautiful.

It helps tourists to spend hours without getting bored, for sure.
It is true Keusik Luhur Beach is located in a secluded area. This means the atmosphere is both peaceful and calm. No wonder, some visitors come to the location to relax, relieve stresses, and find peace during the holiday.
