[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Goa lalay is located approximately 3 km from the city of Pelabuhan Ratu, Sukabumi in West Java, Indonesia. Bias in Goa Lalay you see millions of bats that inhabit this Lalay Goa, so called by Goa Lalay (Lalay = bat). Usually bats this group started out late in the afternoon around 17:00.

Millions of bats usually fly about 20 minutes and then appear again for 30 minutes later. They just fly around Goa Lalay advance. In fact he said based on myths, bat-bats also fly to other areas such as Banten, Bogor, Jakarta, Bandung fact. After enjoying the attractions of thousands of bats, visitors can simply enjoy the beauty of Sunset Beach Pelabuhan Ratu. because it only complains Lalay Goa a few feet away from the shoreline.

The presence of bats in Goa Lalay certainly provide a huge benefit for the community and the surrounding environment. Bats that have an average body weight of approximately 17 grams and capable of eating insects weighing a quarter of its body weight each night, of course, plays an important role in controlling insect populations so there is no population explosion, which is meant to be a pest.
