Timang Beach in Gunungkidul is a tourist attraction with the charm of the southern sea coast. Timang Beach has white sand combined with the beauty of coral islands with big waves. This beach is located in the Tepus area or precisely in the village of Purwodadi Gunungkidul Regency.
Entering this beach will go through the steep limestone road. But after arriving at the coast of Timang, you will see a stretch of the southern sea with large waves and very steep cliffs. Previously on this beach there was a coral island that could only be crossed by a suspension bridge. The suspension bridge is used by local residents to pass through the sea and fish fishing and catching lobter activities. Now the bridge has been repaired better and safer coupled with a gandola. Gandola is a kind of train that is pulled by a rope.
The price of admission to the Timang beach is Rp.10,000 per person. The price of admission is still affordable for tourists who want to enjoy the beauty of the beach in Gunungkidul. Not only the Timang beach, you can also spend time with family on the closest beaches, such as: Siung beach, Nglambor Beach, Indrayanti Beach and Seruni Beach.
Timang Beach is approximately 60 KM from the city of Jogja. The trip can be reached through the city of Wonosari around 2 hours away by car or motorized vehicle. You should choose a car rental in Yogyakarta to Pantai Timang, Gunungkidul. Because going to these tourist attractions there isn’t much public transportation available.
One of the attractions that are of interest to tourists every time visiting Pantai Timang is to ride the Gondola train. Gondala train is a wooden train that is pulled manually by humans to pass large waves that are between the coast to the opposite side of the island of Timang. Most tourists are afraid to try this Gondala, especially below with big waves and strong winds make it sad to pass through. But if you dare to try it will give you an unforgettable sensation and stimulate your adrenaline hormones when you are in the middle of the sea with big waves hitting rock.
By only paying Rp.200,000, you can ride the Gondalan train back and forth while enjoying the beauty of the sea from the coral island in Timang Beach.
The crossing facilities are no less challenging by crossing the suspension bridge. This suspension bridge also functions as a crossing point leading from the beach to the coral island. You will be charged Rp.100,000 per person to pass this place. More expensive than passing the motorway, guest.
An interesting place in the Timang Beach in our opinion is in the coral island spot. After we cross with the Gondala Train or Jembantan Hanging, we will be on Karang Island. Here has an amazing sea view with a fresh sea breeze. It is suitable for relaxing for some time. On this coral island is also a place that is widely used by local residents to fish and hunt lobster shrimp.
