On the harvesting season, however, most of the villagers will stay in their field to work and only leave the elders and child in the village.5 minutes ride from this village we can also enjoy a view over the ocean. Locals normally walk their horses and cows to the area so be sure to have the camera ready for the shots.From Ratenggaro we will drive to visit the secret beach of Watumalandong and Bwanna where you can see the beautiful view of both beaches from one point. Going down on both of the beaches and enjoy the beauty from a different point of view. The beach of Bwanna is a long clear colorful sand beach under the majestic cliff heading to the Indian Ocean makes this place extraordinary. Whilst the beauty is unquestionable, the beach is still unknown by most tourist, which make it almost private and very clean.
