Seseh Beach and the surrounding area are part of all physical and spiritual activities, especially for local residents in the vicinity. This is a rural area with agricultural life as well as a place for fishermen to carry out their activities.

Plenty of traditional boats are neatly lined, colorful, and harmonious with natural coastal panoramas. In the morning, you might find some fishermen who have just returned from the sea with a boat full of catches. You can try to buy it directly on location, if you are interested.

While the surrounding area is a vast expanse of lush rice fields that seem endless. Farmers are busy with their fields, hoeing, driving tractors, burning straw and also maintaining the irrigation channels that distribute waters to paddy fields.

If you visit during the harvest season, you can see golden yellow rice, harvesting process and also farmers drying the grain. This is certainly a special attraction and gives you a different experience.

There is a beach revetment in front of the temple to protect this beach from abrasion. The beach is quite shady and beautiful, lots of trees around the parking and in front of the temple. There is also a "wantilan" (meeting hall) if you want to take shelter on a hot day. This beach is adjacent to Munggu Beach on the eastern end, only separated by a small river that flows into the sea.
