Koka Beach, A Hidden Paradise
Koka Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the city of Maumere, in the district of Sikka. It is a little hidden paradise and some people would consider it as an untouched beach. Most people will know Koka Beach as Dream Beach, which makes sense if you look at the exotic panorama. There are pristine white sands, great waves and good wind, ideal for surfing.
If you will take a car, you have to park 2km away from the beach, which means you will have to walk to Koka Beach. It is more practical to rent a motorcycle.
Koka Beach is great for strolling along the fine white sandy coastline, snorkelling, swimming, relaxing and for sunset sessions in the evenings. From a distance, you will see Nusa Koka Island, a small island located minutes away by boat. If you’re feeling adventurous, ask a fisherman or a friendly local to take you there for a small fee, but keep in mind: there are snakes on Nusa Koka Island. For locals, Koka Beach is a big part of their lives. They would visit with friends and family in the evenings and on weekends.
If you’re an avid fan of the underwater world, you’ll find amazing coral reefs and variety of fishes with many colours in the waters surrounding Koka Beach.
