Southwest of Yogyakarta, the coastline consists of a stunning series of sandy cove beaches divided by volcanic stone headlands and pounded by the full force of the Indian Ocean. It's an isolated corner of Java, with few facilities but with the coming of electricity (pylons were being installed in mid-2012) expect things to gradually change in the next few years.
The scenery is sublime, and exploring the coastal road as it winds through rolling hills, past fields of peanuts and cassava, and taking turn-offs down dirt roads to empty, exposed bays makes a wonderful excursion from Yogyakarta. However, as the sea is oceanic by nature, swimming is only really possible in selected, sheltered spots. Also, you'll need your own wheels as there's no public transport. As ever in Java, try to avoid weekends when local tourism peaks.
It's 65km from Yogya to Indrayanti Beach (also known as Pulang Syawal), a lovely sandy cove with a steep profile and framed by giant boulders at one end. The tiny ocean-facing Indrayanti huts here are well overpriced but seafood at the restaurant is excellent. It's a serene scene, with no trash, but daytrippers crowd the place on weekends.

Memang di perhentian terakhir akan banyak calo yg mendatangani. Kadang menjadi ragu karena mereka menawarkan jasa dgn bersamaan.
Walaupun katanya telah di koordinir shg harganya pasti sama, alangkah baiknya jika dr pihak paguyuban juga mengkoordinir pendaftarannys. Bukalah loket atau meja pendaftaran dan pengunjung tinggal sewa di situ. Tidak perlu calo yg dtg menyerbu pengunjung...
Jika lupa bawa jaket, kita bis sewa dgn harga 10.000 sampai kita balik lagi. Untuk topi, syal, sarung tangan juga banyak yg menawarkan.
Jam 03.00 jeep akhirnya datang dan kami dikenalkan dgn sopirnya yaitu psk No
