The legs are black starfish sticking out from behind a rock into their hiding place.






For those of you who feel tired of playing around on the beach, try to walk and wade offshore. There are a series of rock sticking to the surface of the water and lined up lengthwise looked as if they were forming a path on the ocean.

If you want to take a walk do not forget to use footwear as the rocks here are very sharp sometimes. Some fishermen who were passing, they were looking for a strategic place to cast a fishing rod. The others were engrossed in a shallow sea dive to find UMBAL, a kind of small marine animals that lives attached to the rocks. UMBAL will then be processed into peanut brittle savory by local residents.

For those of you who want to surf the Krakal should go first toward a row of rocks that are in the offshore and then meet with type reef break waves and quite challenging. Seabed dominated reef so for those of you who want to surf to be extra careful. Dry season around March and September is the best time best to wait a barrel in Krakal.
