  • Parangtritis (Queen of the Sea) - Yogyakarta

It is the local legend that has claimed the Parangtritis Beach as the location of the palace of Kanjeng Ratu Kidul,(Nyai Loro Kidul) the ruler of the Southern Ocean invisible world.The Parangtritis beach is located 27 km away to the south of Yogyakarta. Numerous transportations easily reach there. Swimming along the seashore is not allowed because it's waves are not too friendly. Don't worry, however, you may ride a horse or ride in a horse cart enjoying water and horizon and sunset and sand dunes and everything you want to. Along the seashore there are many stalls offering fresh, young coconuts (costing IDR 5000 each).
Not only the waves and the swishing wind that will satisfy you desire of relaxing, but the natural and supra natural tourism objects around Parangtritis beach will give you other satisfaction.

Directions: Buse operate regularly from Yogyakarta's Umbulharjo bus station is 4km southeast of the city center. Bus fare cost around 6000 rupiah. Many travel agency offer a good deal too!!
