Clungup Beach in Malang City, East Java Province
If tourists explore the south region in Malang City, they may find lots of beautiful beaches. Each of these beaches even offers a distinct uniqueness for tourists to enjoy. Let’s take an example. The name is Clungup Beach and it resides in Sitiarjo Village of Sumbermanjing Sub-District. Due to the beauty, many people even consider the beach as the Malang’s Raja Ampat! The thing is the number of visitors is not many as Balekambang Beach or other famous beaches in Malang. Well, it is a good thing though. The serenity makes the beach suitable for relaxation and lessening.
The first thing that tourists may notice once they arrive at Clungup Beach is definitely the long white shoreline with its soft texture. When it comes to the sea, the water is clear and looks stunning. However, the waves are moderate. That means swimming is possible, but it must be done in a careful manner. Not to mention tourists must pay attention to the sharp corals when swimming. So, what makes the waves are not as fierce as other south beaches of Malang? It is because of the presence of small islands that block those waves from coming near to the shoreline. That means it would be safe for swimming within the radius of 500 meters.
Exploring Clungup Beach
People have a different reason for visiting Clungup Beach, but most of them come to enjoy water sports. As mentioned before, the waves are not as big as other south beaches of Malang City.

For those who do not like water sports, though, they can simply stay at the shoreline and enjoy sunbathing. Have no worries. The sand comes with a soft texture, so it won’t hurt the skin at all. As an alternative, tourists should enjoy beach walking or sightseeing on the site.
It is, without a doubt, Clungup Beach has an astonishing panorama. Aside from the stunning sea scenery, other majestic objects are available including three small islands and coral reefs that can be seen on the horizon.
