This is a great beach with a good surf break. It's pretty easy and if you can score it with out a crowd its a bonus. Nice locals and a friendly vibe. A bit of rubbish laying about was the only thing to spoil it.

It takes a 2 hour long drive from Banyuwangi. But go anyway. It's a perfect spot for sunset,and does not lose its charm even on an overcast day. To me it is highly reminiscent of the Selong Belanak beach in Lombok.
