About the tour

For us, Javanese people, this beach plays significant roles in our tradition and believe, especially with the myth of the legendary Queen of the South. Stroll virtually along this beautiful coast line of southern Java, I will try and schedule the trip to this beach during special occasion, like full moon, or when there is a local traditions happen. If weather permit, stay a bit longer to see the sunset of the day (which might be your sunrise time).

How interesting to see something so different. Hagar was great and explained what was going on and why. Really enjoyed the experience, the people were so excited, waiting on the beach. So good to see how traditions and customs differ. Thank you Hagat. Pleasure to be with you.

Absoutely stunning location! Gagat was a great guide and even gave us all a few minutes to just absorb the scene and listen to the waves. Such a soothing way to start my Monday morning! Really appreciate the time and effort Gagat put into hosting this tour for us. Thank you!
