Sawarna Beach is one of the favorite tourist attractions in Banten. It is located in Sawarna village, Bayah, Lebak Regency, Banten.
Apart from Pangandaran Beach, this beach can be your vacation destination.
White sandy beach offers a fine view of the Indian Ocean, various coral formations and green hills.
The waves are big and the currents are strong. so, this is suitable for surfing tours.
