Beautiful ambience, but lots of activites at e beach. There's ATV rides, horse-rides n even scrambler if ur into it. We were there for sunset, it was not disappointing, such a magnificent view. Glad that all e activities stop ride before sunsets.

Was very excited about going to the beach, but it was not what I expected. I wish it was cleaner and there was an arrangement for sitting in the shade and some good eating joints around.

For those who want a white sand beach/a lot of beach activities, it may not be the ideal. For us, it was perfect. We didn't go in the weekend and there were very few people. The wave was quite big, but my friend enjoyed the...More

Trashes everywhere. There is neither sunrise nor sunset over the horizon. It may set over it at a certain time in a year but it is still shifted to the far end of the right side of the beach. Not good for stargazing as well...More

There were a few lodges I spotted on my way to this place, do a google search you will find a few. But none of them would be walking distance. Call them up and check if they provide a scooter/bike/cycle

From Yogyakarta to Parangtritis we can go by bus from the place named "Pojok Beteng". The bus is available from morning to about 4 pm.
