Harbor Beach, a Historic Tourist Attraction

Harbor Beach a Historic Tourist AttractionHarbor Beach (Pantai Pelabuhan) is known as one of the historic attractions in West Bali. The beach located in a strategic area of Pekutatan subdistrict is also known as Jukung Beach. It happened because most of the people near the tourist object have the livelihood as fishermen. In the east side of the beach stands a monument of National Hero, Lieutenant Colonel I Gusti Ngurah Rai, with some soldiers, while above the monument follows a statue of sharpened bamboo weapon. Uniquely, this monument is not commonly made because it resembles a traditional boat.

An author of the art and historical book from Jembrana, Simon Rubianto, said the monument had relation to the voyage of I Gusti Ngurah Rai from Java to Bali when struggling against the colonial occupation in 1945. At that time, he stopped on the beach for a consultation. “To commemorate the event, the government then built this monument,” said the man who also worked as a teacher. With the presence of the statue, continued Rubianto, automatically added to the beauty of the beach. Moreover, there was a row of colorful boats from east to west coast. “The coastal view is getting more beautiful in late afternoon at the sunset time. Currently, foreign travelers staying at hotel near the beach will come and capture the beautiful moment. Additionally, there is also a group of rare egrets looking for fish around the coast,” he said.

Meanwhile in the morning, he said, the beach was crowded by fishmongers wishing to buy fresh fish. These fish were not only purchased by traders and then sold to the market but also purchased by restaurants, food stalls and some shopping centers. “Today, many travelers begin visiting this object. Apart from good road access, hotel and traditional villa have also been built in front of the beach,” said Rubianto. (BTN/Ocha)
