Matahari Terbit

Still feeling rather well yesterday, I decided to visit another beach I have not been to in a long while--Matahari Terbit (Sunrise Beach)). This was is altogether different in character than Padang Galak, as the sand is white and the beachfront is very crowded--not because it's such a great beach, but because there are a lot of things going on there. This, for instance, is where the cruise boats pick up and deposit travelers to nearby islands such as Nusa Penida and Lembongan and others. Therefore, there are a lot of tourists in the area, and where there are tourists, there are beach front shops and cafes. It is also a very popular beach with Indonesians, likely because it is right off the main highway and has a very large parking area, unlike most other beaches here. All in all, it doesn't make for a very relaxing or a very scenic walk.
