Ngurbloat Beach

Introduction

Ngurbloat Beach is also known as Pasir Panjang Beach (Long Sand Beach). It's a 3 km long beach with sand as soft as flour. The Lonely Planet states that Ngurbloat Beach has the smoothest sand on earth. The beach is located 20km west from Tual town, in Ngilngof village, Kei Kecil Island, Maluku Province.

Ngurbloat Beach is a beautiful stretch of beach complete with waving coconut palms with white sand can that can best be compared with flour. The waves are small, the currents not strong and the beach slopes gently into the sea making this beach perfect for swimming. Despite this Ngurbloat beach is pretty much deserted in the week and only in weekends, especially Sundays, local tourists from Tual head out here to play in the water.

If you want to stay longer there are some simple guesthouses near the beach, all made of wood and a bit rundown. The famous guesthouse with backpackers is the Coaster Cottage at the north side of the beach. The best time to visit is April to May and October to December for the best weather and calm waves.
