Photographer's Note

A young Javanese girl is taking her younger sister on a donkey ride on Pandagan beach.

---

PANDAGARAN is a rather large fishing village situated on a narrow isthmus with Pangandaran National Park occupying the entire headland. On both sides of the peninsula are beaches: one side is for tourists, the other side is for fishermen.

THIS PICTURE was taken on the tourist side of town. It can get pretty busy with lots of local tourists and day trippers. In the background you can see how crowded it can get.

We are not beach lovers and we don't usually go for the obvious tourist places, but when we do, we like to go all the way and go where the locals go. Yes, that's Chinese beaches with only Chinese tourists, Mexican beaches with only Mexicans or - here - Indonesian beaches with only Indonesians. These places can be fun, for a day or two. Just go with the local flow...
