Brilio.net – If you’re planning a trip to Indonesia, chances are you’ve thought about checking out East Java. After all, places like the Pacitan Regency are some of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Within the area, there are many places that have become popular due to their natural beauty, including Klayar and Teleng Beaches and Gong Cave. But there are many other gorgeous locales that tourists frequently miss out on seeing. Here are six places you absolutely have to see in Pacitan:
1. Banyu Tibo Beach
Located along the west coast of Java, this quiet getaway has one of the most unique attractions in Indonesia – yet it’s still relatively unknown. Tucked in a cove beside the sandy beaches and gorgeous blue water, the Banyu Tibo Beach is home to a gorgeous natural waterfall. And it’s more than worth the trek to get a glimpse at this under-the-radar natural wonder.
2. Ngariboyo Beach
Located in the Magetan Recency, this coastal area boasts some enjoyable excursions for adventurous tourists. With gorgeous natural land formations and pristine water, Ngariboyo Beach is a must-see, even though many East Java visitors don’t even know it exists. If you venture there, make sure to check out a Maron River tour, which gives you spectacular views of lush Indonesian forests that flank the water on both sides.
3. Buyutan Beach
In East Java, you can find gorgeous beachfront that rivals even the most exotic places in the world. One can’t-miss destination is Buyutan Beach, which boasts fresh white sand and breathtaking cliffs, not unlike those that you’d see in Bali. Though it’s a little hard to reach, the challenge is worth the effort when you can take in the gorgeous panoramic views of this hidden paradise.
4. Tabuhan Cave
This hidden gem is often overshadowed by the more popular Gong Cave. But what really sets Tabuhan Cave apart is its collection of melodic stalactites and stalagmites, which emit a range of captivating sounds when struck. If beaches aren’t your style, or you’re in the mood for something a little more out-of-the-ordinary, Tabuhan Cave may be just what you’re looking for.
5. Grojogan Sewu
Don’t confuse this fascinating landscape with the Grojogan Sewu in Tawangmangu, Karanganyar, Central Java. Though they share a name, the waterfall in East Java isn’t as well known or often visited, but it’s every bit as spectacular. Grojogan Sewu features a seemingly larger-than-life cascading waterfall surrounded by lush wildlife and gorgeous flowing water. And like the rest of East Java’s frequently overlooked attractions, it’s well worth the visit.
