Parangtritis Beach, Parangtritis

3.5
#4 of 12 in Beaches in Yogyakarta
Set against a backdrop of dramatic cliffs, Parangtritis Beach draws tourists with its long, flat stretches of soft sand. Colorful umbrellas provide ample shade for sitting and gazing out on the Indian Ocean, but note that swimming is not advisable here due to high waves and strong currents. Folklore has it that the legendary spirit Nyai Loro Kidul, Queen of the Sea, resides here. Nearby you'll find tourist facilities, hotels, restaurants, and caves and springs for exploring. Alternatively, opt for one of the horse-drawn carriages or horseback rides available all along the beach. With our online itinerary creator, Yogyakarta attractions like Parangtritis Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    I've been in this beach few times. This is a beautiful beach with soft sand and amazing sunset. Parangtritis beach quiet crowded most of the time because the access to reach this beach is easy. It's the common destination of the tourists who visits jogja province.

    Beach with beautiful view, but not for swimning. Wave is too big and there's a lot of jellyfish. You can ride a horse or plat atv. Even have swimming pool
