As well as what the government has done through the North Aceh Youth, Sports and Tourism Office (Disporapar), it has also built supporting facilities such as two food outlets, prayer rooms, and bathing and washing facilities. The village government began to realise that its area was a place of visit for every citizen in various life events, for example every weekend and the day facing the fasting month of Ramadan to carry out activities to enjoy the beauty of the beach with family with the term in the village called 'Meuramin', this is a good and constructive momentum to create economic potential in the local area.
