The most interesting coral island is Pulau Batu Melawang. This island is the largest island in Atuh Beach. The unique thing about this island is that there is a giant hole or a kind of coral tunnel. Therefore, people often refer to it as “stone holes”.
Local people believe that every fishing boat that will sail to the open sea from Atuh Beach must pass through the hole in Batu Melawang Island first. Even today no one dares to violate the myth because it has its own magical value.
Atuh’s name comes from a spring that is near the location of Atuh Beach. Precisely located in the west of Pura Atuh. This spring is still used by local residents.
Interestingly, despite being close to the coastline, but the fresh water does not feel salty at all. And even when the dry season arrives, the spring never dries. That is why the location of this beach is called Atuh which is taken from the words “A” means “no” and “Tuh” means “dry”, so it can be assumed which means “never dry”.
