These beaches are reachable within 20 minutes from downtown Kupang. They are not suitable for any type of water activities, due to murky water and crocodiles. If you want to go swimming, snorkelling your best bet are the beaches south of Kupang. All of the beaches dotted along this coastline have unique aesthetics, some have old shipyards offering shade, others have lonely mangrove trees, and another has a flourishing night market.
Some of them have nice coastal roads to drive along by scooter. All of the beaches offer enough space to allow for relaxation and are popular by sunset chasers.
