About the tour

This beach is located 61 km from the city of Yogyakarta. Legend has it that the name of this beach was given after Baron Skeber, a Dutch aristocrat who landed his ship on this beach. Explore this beach virtually, where you will see the estuary of underground river, the fish market, as well as the live of traditional fishermen and see how they return to the land with the catch of the day.
