Ngusalan beach

Ngusalan beach is located in Gunungkidul, the Wediombo coastal region about 50km southeast of the city of Yogyakarta. From Wonosari the Ngsalan beach is about 40 km to the south. This beach is located in the middle of basically nowhere so not many people visit this beach. However, the Ngusalan beach is not any less beautiful than other beaches south of Yogyakarta.

Since not many visitors come here the surroundings at Ngusalan are still very natural and clean. One of the main attractions on Ngusalan beach is that tourists can hunt sea snail found off the coast. But you can also see some real marine habitats of creatures like oysters, lobster, shrimp and several types of seaweed, all still very well preserved.

Just few hundred meters northeast from the beach is a cave, a nice place to hang out if you are tired of the sun. Inside the cave are several stalactites and stalagmites.
