Unique Rock

Unique Rock

Along the coast between Cikadal, Batununggul until Cikepuh, there are a number of objects to form uniquely shaped rocks, that resemble various types of animal, such as frogs, the head of a rhino, buffalo, crocodile, head of komodo, dragon, lion’s head, the eagle’s head and a fence as well as the batik patern. This unique rock is sedimentary rocks composed of quartz sandstone as parts of Ciletuh Formation of deep sea environment, aged older than 45 million years. Due to geological processes, these rocks rose to the surface and underwent a process of erosion and abrassion by waves resulting in their current form. These rocks are advised to visit between April to November, where sea conditions are relatively calm and the waves are not harmful. Outside of those months are the monsoon, which generally show very large ocean waves and dangerous for shipping. The ocean waves are usually very large near these rocks, so that the boat can not approach and landing at this location.
