Pantai Pulau Merah, Banyuwangi

4.2
#1 of 89 in Beaches in Java
Relax on the fine sands of Pantai Pulau Merah, an uncrowded stretch of coastline. You won't find any rocks here: the sandy beach is wide and calm, and gets its name from the red hue it takes on during sunset. Rent a board and enjoy the surf, as the waters have a slightly stronger tide with smaller waves suitable for beginners. Alternatively, rent a sun lounger and umbrella and simply unwind. Plenty of locals sell food on the beach if you get hungry during your visit. Plan to visit Pantai Pulau Merah during your Banyuwangi vacation using our convenient Banyuwangi planner .

    This beach is popular among local, when I and my friend visited it was too crowded with the local weekender. If you want to seat down you need to rent a chair. Food and drink are expensive.  more »

    the best view here is when the sun going down. the water flows on the sand reflects red light from sunset. So, the best time for visiting is before sunset comes
