Not far from the beach, there is a temple called Pura Atuh. This temple is often visited by Hindus communities around Pejukutan and Tanglad villages, especially during the ceremony. In the western part of the temple there are two springs that are still used today by the community. One of these springs is considered sacred, because it is only used for the benefit of custom ceremonies. While the other springs are used by the people around for a variety of living purposes. According to Pelilit Hamlet, I Wayan Satu Nusantara, there is an interesting story behind the occurrence of two springs. It was said that in the dry season, a resident saw a kneeler drinking water under a coconut tree. Later, the night the villagers received a pawisik (wahyu) to set up a springs in the cottage's drinking place. Once traced, it turns out that under the tree there is a spring source. Although the existence of these two fountains is adjacent to the beach, but in fact the water is tasteless. Another uniqueness, the source of the springs has never experienced drought despite the dry season. So, the residents around named the beach with the name of Pantai Atuh. Where the meaning of the word Atuh is derived from the word "A" meaning 'no' and 'Tuh' which means 'dry', so it can be assumed that the word "Atuh" means 'never dry'.
