The ascent here is not as comfortable as on the hill in the middle, but here you are rewarded with a fantastic view. The height of the mountain also allows you for the first time to capture the great Tanjung Aan Beach in its entire size.

No designated surf beach

Sports cannons are rather moderately served at Tanjung Aan Beach. Surfing is possible, but the beach is generally not known for its surfing conditions. Due to the mostly shallow water it is more suitable for kiting or sailing. Own equipment is required, because there is no rental of sports equipment on this beach. The beach is also ideal for activities outside the cool water, as it has sand that is sometimes so hard that some scooter riders even use it as a shortcut.
