Sukamade Beach, Banyuwangi

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Situated inside a national park, Sukamade Beach shelters a population of sea turtles, which surface on the sand almost every night to lay eggs. You can often spot up to four different species on this beach. Stop by the hatchery to see incubated eggs and meet baby turtles awaiting release into the wild. Pick a night with a full moon for your visit and expect rough roads, river crossings, and mountain tracks best traversed by a 4x4 vehicle.

  • We visited the Sukamade Beach end of March 2017. The price for the tour was RB 1.5 million per person (we have booked it in our homestay in Banjuwangy (Cevilla homestay). You're asleep but under very adverse conditions, but it was only a short night. There is no electricity and water. The bed sheet schimmelten, so be sure your own sleeping bags to take! It was very hot in the room, but impossible to open a window, because come the macaques. The breakfast and dinner very clearly. There is nothing, no supermarket on site. It is in the nowhere. So first get water, etc. The beach is unfortunately smoggy, as so often in Asia. Why still 5 star? Because it has been a unique experience which we will never forget. In addition, the night was just short. We have put a big green sea turtle at the eggs can observe and then in the morning baby on the beach may expose. The turtles come each night, it is therefore very likely to see one. Lucky thing is whether they lay eggs. It was simply wonderful to watch these gigantic animals so close. It focused too much on the welfare of the animals. No light or loud noises were allowed. The accommodation is surrounded by jungle, there are many macaques and Black Monkeys.
