Tapak Paderi Beach is one of the top tourist destinations in the province of Bengkulu. With a coastline that borders the Indian Ocean, Bengkulu’s Tapak Paderi Beach merges into Pantai Panjang, or Long Beach, making the entire province’s coast seemingly endless stretches of fun and relaxation in the sea, sand and sun.


Strolling along Tapak Paderi, visitors can admire the beauty of the Bengkulu Sea, watch the enchanting sunset, or enjoy grilled seafood and corn along the seaside or on a boat.


Aside from its natural beauty, Tapak Paderi’s historical attractions are what set it apart from other beaches. Tapak Paderi was the center of the first seaport in Bengkulu. It was also the hub for marine transportation of the British Government. The port was located just 100 meters from Fort Marlborough, a fort built by the British in the early 18th century. This fort and the Thomas Parr Monument are the most visited attractions in the Bengkulu Province. Along this beach, you can also see a Chinatown that was once also a major hub of activity.


Tapak Paderi Beach is also the location for the annual Bengkulu Tabot Festival. This is a cultural event exhibiting a variety of performing arts and dances, traditional crafts, markets, competitions, and much more.
