When viewed from above, indeed Pasih Uug looks like a land that is damaged (collapsed) because there is a large hole that gaping with a tunnel as access to enter the sea water into the hole.
The blue sea view is the main attraction we can enjoy in this place. The most favorite style of visitors who take pictures here is to make the tunnel / gate as the background.
The best time to visit Pasih Uug is in the morning. Why? Because during the morning the sea is high. and has great potential to see turtles and manta in the “hole”, pass in this beach.
Angel’s Billabong, a name given by an Australian tourist when visiting this place for the first time. The reason for naming it is because according to him the pool is similar to an angel pool.
Because Being between 2 large rocks with a view that leads directly to the sea. And the clear water makes many local or foreign tourists, often soak in this place.
The depth of the pool is approximately only 1 meter. But what needs to be considered if you want to swim here is the sea level. If the sea level is the same as Angel’s Billabong, then we recommend not swimming. because the waves are very large.
