[Jakarta – Malang – Banyuwangi – Ijen Crater – Bali] Dec 2015 – Jan 2016 Day 3 Pandawa Beach, Padang-Padang Beach, Blue Point Beach, and Uluwatu, Bali
After a highly recommended adventure in Banyuwangi and Ijen Crater, we finally reached Bali on 28th Dec. There was nothing to do on the 28th as we arrived at 9pm and we took a rest soon afterwards. On the 29th, we didn’t plan to catch sunrise at all as we were lacking a proper sleep so we sleep till 7am. Soon after waking up, we swam for a little while in the villa.
At 11am, we departed from our villa directly to Pandawa Beach. At first, we didn’t know where to go and we didn’t plan at all. We planned to consult with the driver as he supposed to know better than us. Unfortunately, the driver was not as expert as we were expecting to be so we told him to bring us to the destination near us. So, we went to Pandawa Beach first. The sun was insanely hot. It’s good for tourists from Europe or Australia but unfortunately not for me. I had a fair skin and with this, I’m turning literally dark. We bought sunglasses and took a bunch of pictures ( Indonesians really love to take pictures ! )
After Pandawa Beach ( which we only took pictures as the sun was really mad ), we went to Padang Padang Beach. The beach here is literally beautiful to swim, surf or to tan ourselves. This place is really photogenic. There were so many Caucasians here than Indonesians.
*Rute perjalanan ke sawarna ada disini
Hey guys ! Setelah kemarin iseng jalan-jalan ke Telaga Biru Cigaru, weekend ini me and my friends gonna try going to Desa dan Pantai Sawarna. Yup, pantai yang menurut IDNtimes termasuk 15 pantai terindah di Indonesia. Pantai ini terletak di sebuah desa kecil di provinsi Banten. Disini terdapat pantai, bukit, goa dan it’s not going to be a long trip. Kami kesana cuma 2D1N dan dengan biaya seminimal mungkin. Rencana kami untuk sampai kesana adalah via Pelabuhan Ratu dimana pertama kami akan singgah ke Stasiun Bogor, lalu Terminal Baranang Siang dan Pelabuhan Ratu. Dari sana, naik ELF ke Sawarna kalau beruntung dapat rute direct kesana. Jika tidak, berarti harus singgah via Bayah.
Disana we are planning to visit Pantai Pasir Putih Ciantir, Tanjung Layar, Lagoon Pari, Goa Lalay dan Kerang Teraje. Kami sih simply penasaran sebagus apa Sawarna itu sendiri dan hitung-hitung melepas penat juga dari skripsi haha ! That’s it for now ! Tunggu hasil eksplorasi kami pekan depan 🙂
