Pelabuhanratu Off The Beaten Path: 10 reviews and 10 photos
Not that many foreigners make the Southerly West-Java trip ... the transport's not much fun ... and the coast is a rugged, volcanic district where the Indian Ocean waves take on Javas Southern beach for ages. And Karang Hawu, known for a particular pleasure-trip, is worth this trip!
In 1966 Mrs. Ratna Dewi Sukarno, late President Sukarno's wife, asked at this spot for "minta-ampun", is forgiveness, when the opening-ceremony of the Samudra Hotel got destroyed by a hurricane-like storm. Because the Spiritqueen of the South-Sea had not been invited in a proper way ... is told. Mrs. Ratna Dewi Sukarno was brought from Paris where she had a little vacation, to Karang Hawu where she performed her "minta-ampun" ritual. Which became a well-known gossip until today!
