We came to this beach solely for legendary Malim Kundang. The view was beautiful but the facilities, poorly maintained. Would love to see some efforts for improvement.

Visiting this famous place since I've been so curious about Malin Kundang legend. The beach is dirty and the path to go there is so small. We must be careful in driving since the roads are rough. We took some pictures especially with the famous rock statue of malin kundang and his ship.
