Ngobaran Beach is located at Gunung Kidul region,
50km from Yogyakarta. This is a pure beach with a number of marine
attractions to explore. When the tide is low around 3 in the morning,
the visitors can join the local fishermen to collect seaweeds or
go fishing for stranded fish between the reefs at the beach. The
overall panorama creates some unexplainable yet peaceful feelings.
Some believe that somewhere in the beach lie the remains of King
Brawijaya fort and his men “Sabdo Palon Ngoyogenggong”.
Other uniqueness of this beach includes a cave, which leads its
explorers to a striking underground stream.
Going to Ngrenehan Beach and enjoying the grilled
fish will be complete if we drop by Ngobaran Beach that is located
adjacent to it. The location of the beach with high cliff is around
two kilometers from Ngrenehan Beach. The local people of Ngrenehan
Beach even talk and visit Ngobaran Beach.
Ngobaran is such an exotic beach. When the seawater
had falls, we can see the spread of both green and brown seaweed.
When it looked from the top, the spread of the algae growing in
coral reef looks like spread of rice field in a densely populated
area. Tens of sea animal species also present in between the coral
reef, ranging from sea urchin, starfish, to various types of cockleshells.
