About
Unlike other black-sand beaches, this sand isn't volcanic in nature but rather is streaked black by run-off from a nearby hot spring.

Sand was really black. Could be due to the factories nearby emitting pollutants.

But was really a surprise to see black sand. There is a swing for great picture spot. Quiet with not many tourists.

Sadly many rubbish was seen on the beach which spoiled it's beauty.

But still worth the visit though.

Although black send fewer and fewer but still beautiful and comfortable when hearing the sound of the waves and blow it here. They also made two swings let people to play and take a photo. No need to spend many time so recommend to come if you through here, especially time close to sunset or sunrise.

Beach is dirty and smells. There's a water waste pipe leading from land to the beach area where people suppose to walk pass it!!? Black sand probably deteriorated over the years, not much left.

Loved the folklore behind the sand. It was also very secluded and beautiful. If you walk a little bit up from the main spot, the view gets beautiful, and the sand quality gets better to. The water is also much much clearer compared to the rest of the island. Spotted a lot of crabs in the ocean.

Having visited a black sand beach, we were prepared for and expecting a black sand beach... This isn't one.

Worth a quick stop whilst travelling between places, great lookout providing you look right and not left towards the cement works. Interesting geology about the place.

We had a quick stop but were not impressed as there is not much black sand left. The beach is not worth the trip unless you pass it anyway.

Have been here during the ebb tide time (around 12pm) and able to make walk quite far from the beach. Able to see some sea life such as crabs running around even though the water is not crystal clear. The place has food truck that sells fried noodle/kuey teow, laksa and drinks too. Feel very relaxing and enjoy my time here. Only able to walk part of the beach due to time constraints else I will be spending more time here. Anyway I can't find a place or toilet to wash away the sand at this place that makes a minus to this place.
