Gapang BeachGapang Beach is an unique beach, with white sand halfway around the bay, surrounded by large overhanging trees; the ‘Gapang’ trees.

So you can choose to sit on the beach in the sun, or in the shade of these grand old trees.

With a great house reef in front of the diveshop and a couple of resident turtles living in the bay, it’s a perfect place for snorkeling and long relaxed shore dives.
