Pasih Uwug, also known as Broken Beach, has beautiful views of hollow cliffs. This hole, at first, just looked like an ordinary cave. However, over time there was erosion, and now what remains is instead the beautiful scenery on the cliffs that are hollow because of seawater erosion. Want to swim under the reef? It’s really not recommended. Not only because of the sharp rocks that threaten, but also because the waves are quite dangerous. If you are lucky, you might be able to see stingrays swimming in the waters of this beach.
