recommended for East Java adventure

It was a great experience to witness natural selection by releasing baby turtles. Emotional moments, only one baby turtle can survive out of thousands.

It's a long and tough journey to sukamade. In the wet season it might be really tough! When we went with the jeep the rivercrossing should be possible but the river was 6 meter deep!!! Someone had build a raft so we could cross and walk the last 2 km though knee-deep water. In the nighttime you go with a... More

We travelled with our guide and 4x4 driver from Kalibaru. It took 4 hours of driving on bumpy roads and crossing rivers to finally reach our destination, Sukamade Beach. Sukamade beach is about 97 km to southwest of Banyuwangi. It is a natural, quiet, beautiful place and part of the 50,000 hectare Meru Betiri National Park. Almost every night of... More

Although it was not easy to get there, it is absolutely 'a must see' during your visit to Indonesia. There are some organized jeep tours that you can buy in Bunyawangi, but rather expensive when compared to other attractions in the country. Since we were a budget travelers, we were obviously searching for a cheaper option. Found out from one... More

Visit to Sukamade was very nice: the jeep ride through the plantations and jungle was bumpy, but felt like an adventure. Interesting to see the plantation works (e.g. making palm sugar sirop) on the way and to visit 'Green Bay'/Teluk Hijau, which is about 45min walk from the road. Super serene surroundings! Tracking turtles at night was a small adventure.... More

If you are luky it's one of a kind experience and will touch your soul. Don't forget to leave a donation to the Rangers because their work is really important to preserve the sea turtles.

I researched this place long before taking our kids. And I am glad I took the risk to bring them to this place and expose them to the wildlife conservation. As parents, however, I need to ensure that our journey were safe, while at the same time they would have their lifetime experiences. So it started with chosing the right... More
