For years, Natsepa became known as one and only attractions, only later discovered that the Ambon island have many others.
Tired of playing with the waves, visitors can rest on a sloping sandy beach. The sand’s texture is so soft, like soft sugar, the color is not too white, but comfortable to walk or just lie down.
Local residents said that previously the sand on Natsepa glowed white. Sunlight makes luminescence on it like a diamond.
Visitors who want to enjoy the beach longer can stay there. Numbers of economy class bungalows are available. Built on the shell, the bungalows have natural impresion. Plus the wooden walls, natural impression even more so.
You don’t need to install an alarm to wake you up in the morning. The sound of the birds on the trees around bungalows is loud and noisy enough to force the closed eyes wide open.


For them with extra pocket can choose a luxury resort near the beach. Rate of three to four times the rate of the simple bungalows earlier.
So, what are you waiting for?
