Despite a six-hour road journey, 90% of visitors to Ujung Genteng still come from Jakarta and Bandung, who visit the area as this is still the nearest beach to these major cities that is virtually untouched. Its white coral beaches are surrounded by coral reef, where locals dive for Lobsters, one of the main sources of income for the people of the area.

As the area is growing in popularity, tourism is becoming the main source of income for the local population and part of the rich tourist heritage of Indonesia. Plans by the government are already underway in developing and preserving this area for the future. Toll roads virtually complete from Bandung and Jakarta will be completed by 2015.
