While you're at the beach, you might want to rent a small boat (IDR 60,000 each) which will take you to the other spots like the Kletakan Bay, the Bolu Bolu Beach, and the Banyu Anjlok Beach.
Each spot has its own uniqueness. At Kletakan beach, you can snorkel and swim along with the colorful fishes. Life jackets will be provided.
In the Javanese term, Banyu Anjlok means waterfall from the top. This spot is unique because it has a freshwater waterfall by the beach along with a narrow-mouthed cave between the rocks.
