  Site Description  
  Pangandaran is a small peninsula on the southern coast of Java, approximately 40 km west of Cilacap. The peninsula is roughly rectangular in shape, with its highest axis lying in northwest-southeast direction. It is approximately 3km long and the greatest width is 2km viewed from the sea. P. Pangandaran appears as a broken rugged coastline, with precipitous cliffs and steep, narrow gullies skirting a forested plateau. Only in the north does the land slope more gently to sandy cloves and beaches. The plateau has river valleys radiating outward from the centre, with the largest draining towards the south and northwest. The valleys are separated by narrow steep sided ridges, sloping gently towards the coast and then dropping steeply to the shoreline ending abruptly in a cliff. Extensive coral formations are found at the northeast coast. There are also limestone cliffs on the southeast coast. Part of the vegetation cover of the peninsula consists of secondary forest. There are also a few small isolated remnants of primary forest around holy places. In the northern part of the reserve there are swampy areas in the valleys, characterized by the presence of Calamus sp. Principal vegetation: Barringtonia-formation with Barringtonia asiatica, Terminalia catappa, Calophyllum inophyllum.
