Sukamade Beach, Banyuwangi

4.4
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Banyuwangi
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Magical experience. The ranger is so sweet and we clearly see that he is passionate about the protection and defence of the turtles.

Oviposition is done at night, and the next morning we have about three babies per person we take and lay on the sand. It's so cute.

  • Very good care for the turtles. The rangers go fair to with nature and do everything for the sake of the turtles and not for the tourists. The rangers are well educated and for example, not just foreign volunteers adopted. In the night we watched a turtle has laid its eggs and in the morning we have baby turtles. Clear instructions on how to do this without the turtles prevent. Rangers gave detailed explanation and you could she ask anything, clear that they know what they're talking about. Also the trip to Sukamade was special. With the Jeep through the jungle and by the river. Definitely recommended. We have the tour booked through the VIAVIA Office with.
