  1. Siung Beach

Siung Beach has grown renowned not only for the beauty of its sandy beaches but also for its most scenic views. There are over a hundred spots where you can climb its jagged cliffs to enjoy the landscape’s breathtaking scenery. Siung Beach is truly the way to go for hardcore rock climbers who expect a fantastic view after a hard day’s climb.

  1. Pok Tunggal Beach

Only several people know about the secret that lies among dense cliffs known as Pok Tunggal Beach. The beach bordered by two gigantic hills that have been developed as a tourist spot. Naturally, a climb to the top of one of these hills, or even both, is the only way to enjoy the best views. What’s so special about this shore? The unique Duras Tree was standing alone on the edge of the white sandy shore. This white sandy seaside escapade was opened to the public in 2012.

  1. Krakal Beach

Krakal Beach is among the favorite spots for locals. Aside from being a fisherman’s area, this beach is ideal for expert surfers to check their maneuvers against the reef break. This reef break is a challenge and should be tried by professional surfers rather than for beginners. There are no post offering surfboard rentals, so all you skilled surfers, do not forget to bring your surfboards.

  1. Sinden Beach

Sinden Beach was getting all of the hype recently because of a suspension bridge that connects it to a smaller island, also known as Kalong Island (the Island of Bats). Here is where you can test your guts walking along a flimsy appearing suspension bridge (but is, of course, really sturdy) while appreciating the waves crashing against the rocks beneath. Do you’ve got the guts to try?

  1. Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo Yogyakarta

Suppose you are looking for various kinds of experience, then visit Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo. This area is a coastal dune that is popularly known as the ideal place for sand surfing (also known as sand-boarding). Considering there are only some places in the world where you can go sand surfing, this is the best area to be for those looking for an unusual challenge. Plus, although coastal dunes spread across Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam, the special Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo is the only spot commercially used for sand surfing.

Vacation is more than just the scenery or destinations. It’s also about making long-lasting memories. Discover more adventures in Yogyakarta and Indonesia by visiting Wonderful Indonesia.
