Pangumbahan, is one of unique tourism object at this location. Watch the sea turtle lays their eggs at the beach at night time. This must be a unique even for some person an not all coastal has it. The turtle which lying eggs at this area is green turtle which is live at the sea-water. Green turtle can grow until reaching more than 1 meter long, more than 200 kg in weight and life more than 100 years. Before turtle starts to lay their eggs we suggest to generate any light because this make the turtle refuse to lay eggs and back again to the sea. After egg starts to release then we can be near and observes it by using flash light. If the turtle already started to release its egg, it won’t stop until finished and numbers of eggs released from a green turtle are more than 200.
