Arrive at the entrance, we still need to ride car to the parking lot. It tooks almost 20 minutes from the entrance. Car parking fee is IDR 5.000/car.
Then we still need to walk to the waterfall area. In the middle of the path, there’s tree-section. If you want to ride boat, then turn left, but if you just want to enjoy the waterfall, turn right. 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.
Sri Gethuk Waterfall is one of attraction place in Dusun Menggoran, Bleberan Village, Playen – Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta. It is located on side of Oya River.

We eat lunch at Babi Guling Bima Kroda. Then, continue the journey to the beach. It took less then 1 hour from Yogyakarta.
The beach is nice, clean, and alreay well-known of tourists. Not much to do in there because we can’t swim. But for couple, this is the good place to dating.
Pay for the entrance, Rp 2.750/person. This is only entrance to entering beach area. If you bring car, there’s a car park fee for Rp 10.000.
After we park our car, we can see the tree view.
Don’t forget to take some picture in here. After that, you can walk along the beach. The beach is common, nothing special in here. For me, the trees is the speciality from this beach.
Not far from the beach, there’s a light house. You can walk to there but it’s quiet far, maybe 1km more. So we decided to rode car to go there. So after satisfied play in the beach and took some picture, we back to the car park.

We almost spend 1.5 hours to get out from the arrival. By the time we come out, it’s already 21:45 local time. I bought ramen at Ramen Ten restaurant for supper at Hotel. Then we wait for the hotel airport pick-up at 22:00 in frong of Old Town White Coffe (just right outside of the arrival gate).

But still there’s so many tree in there which make this beach special.

Today, I went to Taman Sari Watercastle, as assistant for my brother’s job, pre-wedding photoshoot. Usually, we can use the place early than opening time, but this time, the staff said because the change of management, they open from 09:00 and no less. So when we got there, it’s 07:00, they didn’t open yet. Even the Sumur part also didn’t open yet. So we went to the ruin part, which open from 06:00.
This is my 2nd time go here, and this ruin part is my first time entering here. When I came here for the first time, I didn’t entering the place, only waiting in front of gate.
Then at 09:00, we went to the Sumur part.

There’s an Embong Fruit Garden in there. Short path for hash, ended in that Embong. We can using our car to reach there, but some people walk to get there.
Actually, after we walk till the path to the Embong, my friend said that she tired. So we back to the car field, and then she said that we go to the Embong using car. So here we are, using car while some others walking. XD
The Fruit Garden was just inaugurated, so the fruit hasn’t available yet. We only roaming surround the Embong. Embong is like a small lake. The view is amazing.
