Ciletuh geoarea has a very unique and rare landscape, which forms a plateau with a horseshoeshaped valley that opens nto the sea to form such a natural stage (called amphitheater). This amphitheater is formed due to geological processes of a normal fault followed by a huge avalanche due to the vertical force greater than the horizontal force. Amphitheater valley is filled by the beauty of the green rice fields and settlements. While on the coast of the southern part of the valley there are very rare and old rocks formation aged more than 30 million years old, Eocene as well as uniquely animal shaped rocks. The beauty of the amphitheater and the Ciletuh bay can be enjoyed from several view points in Panenjoan of Tamanjaya village, in Pamoyanan of Ciemas village, Puncakdarma and Cikalapa in the Girimukti village.
