The eastern side of Indonesia is known well for its fascinating nautical highlight, especially the eastern most island of Indonesia.
If you’re visiting Jayapura, don’t forget to visit this beach, Harlem Beach.
Harlem Beach is located in Jayapura Regency, Papua, precisely in Tablanusu Village, Depapre District.
From Jayapura, you must first take a fairly challenging terrain to get to Depapre. From Depapre, you can only take the sea route to reach Harlem Beach.
Harlem Beach has a coastline around 700 meters. The beach has clean white sand without gravel.
The atmosphere is shady because there are coconut trees, bintanggur and sago that grow near the beach.
In Harlem, local residents provide facilities for visitors, including huts and bathrooms. At Harlem Beach, you can also find a freshwater pool about 7 meters from the beach.
The waves are small as the beach is located in a bay, making it good place for swimming and snorkeling. You can see corals, fishes, and other sea animals while snorkeling. You don’t have to go far out into the see these beauties as there are many who live close to the beach line.
Beside snorkeling and swimming you can also try to catch some fish, play in the sand or just enjoy the scenery and solitude. There’s a water pool near the beach used for rinsing our body after playing at the beach. It has fresh natural clear water.
