Timang Beach, Yogyakarta

4.8
#1 of 12 in Beaches in Yogyakarta
One of the few beaches in the region, Timang Beach offers a relatively untouristed environsis, marked with views of the surrounding blue waters. Because the beach is not easy to reach, hire a guide to take you, but beware of rough and bumpy roads. The white sand and tranquil sounds of the waves lapping up to shore make it worthwhile for those who brave the journey. Locals reach the beach by cable car over the sea, a mode of transport also utilized to catch lobsters that are then sold to nearby restaurants.
