Beang Bay, a natural harbour

 

Beang Village in Beang Bay (2012)

Beang is located in a big bay on the south-east coast of the island,  at the foot of Mt. Sirung volcano.

The (black) beach in Beang Bay is very interesting indeed. There is a hot spring with a pool, and on the shoreline, even underwater, there are spots where you burn your feet - hot water and gas bubble up from the volcanic underground.

Find Beang Bay in the right of the aerial view of Mt. Sirung on the following WIKIPEDIA page:
