Sukamade Beach, Banyuwangi

4.4
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Banyuwangi
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 slept in a simple guesthouse and went after dinner the beach on. you sit here with a group of other tourists (we were sitting with 12 man) waiting in the dark. You may not use light to scare the turtles not. After 1.5 hours of waiting we were asked to walk with the ranger. A little further on was a turtle laying its eggs on. Super nice to see. After a while gave the ranger that we had to let her go to the nature. The next morning we went back. They dig the eggs on and tag the turtles that the eggs have been laid. They have a large room where they checked the eggs and the tourists, they may then free. We have two swimming 9 baby turtles to the sea. It is perhaps what touristy but the intention behind the whole is there to ensure that as many turtles survive. Super nice experience!!
