Instagrammable Karang Agung Beach Surprises Travelers
Who would’ve guessed that the paradise is nested in Kebumen, Banyumas?
Yes, the Central Java’s Kebumen is home for several pretty beaches as it is side to side with the Indian Ocean. Some of them are Logending Beach, Menganti Beach and the famous Karang Bolong.
Adding to the list is the newly-viral Karang Agung Beach. With wild and quite steep terrain, it’s not for the faint-hearted traveler. Trekking through the Perhutani Forest, the effort is worth the trip as the beauty is incomparable.
Live up to its name, the beach has sand – but you’ll face rocky terrains here and there. Tall, big and sturdy, it’s uniquely blanketed with trees. Locals used to believe that the beach is a sacred palce – even now, after the beach is open to public, they still maintain the annual Sedekah Laut ritual.
Come at sunset or sunrise for the most breath-taking moment.
