 Access

Blacksands is accessed by the same road that goes to Holtekamp. There is a small road to the left (west) just before arriving at the shore line, with a small wooden guard shack. Sometimes at the guard shack someone is collecting money for "accident insurance" (not optional when they are there). Take the dirt road to the left. Various places along the beach offer access. These places are somewhat maintained by the land owners who often charge Rp25.000-30.000 per car. The road is not well maintained and full of potholes. The better surf spots are about a couple of kilometers or more back along the road.

 Additional Information

This spot is notorious for closing out when the waves get bigger. Some spots along the beach offer edges that peel okay, but it really pays to study the waves a little before going in b/c a good portion of the wave closes out while the edges are still surf-able. Car parking is available for Rp25.000-30.000 per car (paid to the land-owner before leaving, they will come and ask for it). Upon entering the road, people will sometimes require a fee to enter the road itself, selling "insurance" (Rp10.000-20.000 per car).

Atmosphere

Sand-fleas, so helps to add Dettol (local antiseptic) to sun-block to prevent sand-flea bites. Don't park under the coconut trees, b/c the coconuts do fall and they are not light!

General

Good spot that breaks regularly, but closes out when the swell is bigger. Not always the best for small kids, and occasional rip tides wash smaller kids toward possible fallen trees or other obstructions in the water. Beach is nicely shaded.
