Pangumbahan Turtle Park is located in Cibuaya, Ujung Genteng, Ujung Genteng is what coastal preservation should be all about. In stark contrast to the beach resorts in places like Bali, there are still goats and cattle running up and down the beach, and the roads have yet to be fully paved.
The water is clear and blue and the sand is powder-white. There is an old Japanese fort in the water at one of the beaches, as well as a sea turtle preserve.
The beach itself is magnificent, still inhabited by sea snakes and monitor lizards, as well as lionfish swimming in the reefs.

Simplistic and devoid of technology- they don’t even have any kind of computers or testing facilities, yet it performs its function- to preserve a species- admirably and effectively.
It was amazing indeed to see the sea turtles come ashore by the light of the moon, trudge their way almost 100 meters up the beach, dig a hole in the sand, lay over 100 eggs and bury them again.
The eggs are collected in large barrels and constantly monitored by security to protect them from the threat of egg collectors.
