Parangtritis Beach, Parangtritis

3.0
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. Parangtritis Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Parangtritis Edition.
