The 'beach' is a stretch of huge, smooth grey rocks interspersed among round black pebbles. Think of it as free reflexology. Cattle and goats graze by the shore as spectators view the action out on the water. There are a few guesthouses plus a couple of surf shops (board rental from 100,000Rp per day).
Medewi proper is a classic market town with shops selling all the essentials of west Bali life.
