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.

Our last destination is Pok Tunggal Beach. From Jogan Beach, you have to go out from Tepus, then to Baron Beach directions. From the entrance, Pok Tunggal Beach is the first beach to reach. And it’s already known by people, so the facility is good.

Why Pok Tunggal? I heard that because there’s only one tree in this beach. But when I get there, there’s another tree beside Pok Tunggal Tree and the Pok Tunggal Tree has been circled with fence. It’s really different with picture from Yogyes.

We got sunset in here. There’s coral cliff in the both side of the beach.

Just go to the Siung Beach direction, then after pass the Siung Beach entrance (IDR 3.000/pax), you will see a sign to Jogan. Turn left and follow the road. They renovated the road, so we have to drove slowly. We could see the karst hill on the way to the beach. The car parking cost IDR 5.000/car.

The beach itself, still not fully opened for tourists, the facility is minimum, but many people come there just to enjoy the scene. We can’t swim in there. The waterfall fall directly to the sea, and this is what made Jogan Beach special and many people come to here.

When we came, the river is overflow, so the boat didn’t operated. Becareful, because of the overflow, the path is slippery.

It’s really crowded maybe because it’s Sunday. Too many people in there, I even can’t see the waterfall.
