Banyu Anjlok Beach in Malang City, East Java Province
Spending a good vacation involves many factors, and one of them is definitely the destination. Banyu Anjlok in Malang City turns out to be a good choice, in this case. The location is in Purwodadi Village and it belongs to Tirtoyudo Sub-District. The fact is the beach resides in the same area as neighboring beaches like Bowele and Klatakan Beach! So, what makes it unique? Not only the beach offers wonderful sea scenery, but it also features a waterfall! This rare phenomenon makes Banyu Anjlok more popular than other southern beaches of Malang City, in fact. For the information, the name itself means “the falling water”. The locals gave the name due to the presence of the waterfall.
In terms of nuance, Banyu Anjlok Beach looks regular (which is similar to neighboring beaches). One thing that makes it different, as mentioned before, is the presence of a waterfall with the height of about 7 meters. Without a doubt, the waterfall becomes the prime allure there. Tourists can even climb it or take a shower under the waterfall! During the rainy season, the water discharge even becomes stronger and more beautiful! What about the shore? Well, the waves are moderate but the sea is considered safer for swimming (as long as tourists don’t go too far).
Exploring Banyu Anjlok Beach
It is true Banyu Anjlok Beach has a beautiful sea panorama that tourists can enjoy during the visit. Still, the best allure is none other than the waterfall itself. The locals even named the beach based on it! “Banyu” means water while “Anjlok” means falling. Once getting close to the waterfall which is located by the shore, tourists can enjoy photography or even take a shower under it. Not to mention they can get to the top of the waterfall by climbing the cliff. One thing, the landscape is slippery due to the excessive water. That means everyone should be careful when climbing.
Even though the waterfall becomes the prime tourist attraction in Banyu Anjlok Beach, tourists have other objects to appreciate for sure. For instance, they can take advantage of the white sandy shoreline to enjoy beach walking with families. For those who want a more memorable experience, they can do other fun things like riding boats and snorkeling. However, it requires an instructor or guide if they want to explore the underwater beauty.
The next recommended thing to do in Banyu Anjlok Beach is to spend the night by the shore. That means tourists may build a tent on the available spot and conduct camping with either friends or families. Later, they should visit a nearby famous cave called Sarang Dompet too!
