Pok Tunggal Beach (2), Gunung Kidul # Special Region of Yogyakarta – Indonesia

September 06, 2020

Today, my family goes picnic to the beach. We decided to outing and looking for not too crowded beach in Wonosari. It’s our first outing since the pandemic.

We depart from home around 10am, and buy take away Fried Chicken Suharti in Yogyakarta.

When arrive at Patuk, almost enter Wonosari City, we found this Geopark (near the place where you can see Yogyakarta from above). So we decided to picnic in there. We bring mat, catering box, and rice.

After that, we continue our trip. We arrive at Beach area around 1 o’clock, this time, we try to visit the beach one by one and see which one is the less crowded.

1st and 2nd beach is Kukup beach and Krakal beach. This two beach is the most famous in Gunung Kidul, so we skip it.

3rd beach is Sundak Beach, and it turns out there’s some event in there (I don’t know what’s event), so we decided to go another.

4th beach, is Pok Tunggal Beach, this beach is less crowded. Even when we arrive in there, the car park is full, but not many people in there. So we decided to play in this beach.

There’s a long beach that fill with the swallow seawater, so you can walk further to the middle. There’s many coral in there so you have to be careful, and I suggest, you wear your slippers because there’s so many small animals in there.

See you in the next trip.. Keep save and don’t forget to wear mask and social distancing..
