Fisherman huts. Long before the appearance of the tall hotels that buffer the offshore winds so cherished by windsurfers, this beach was festooned with brightly colored sail. And even before that, fishing boats laden with the day’s catch lined the shore, their captains sharing fish tales and negotiating fish sales. Today both parties share the sand: Seasoned windsurfers and kiteboarders streak across the horizon while beginners hang close to shore, trying to avoid close encounters with the boats anchored along the coastline.
White powder sand with some pebbles and stones, and very shallow water. Excellent for boardsailing, Hadikurari is the place of the annual Hi-Winds Pro Am Windsurfing Competition. Windsurfing accommodations sits a couple of hundred yards up the street to the north of the beach. Accessible by public bus or car.
