Pulodoro Beach in Malang City, East Java Province
South beaches in Java Island indeed are known for their fierce waves. No wonder, beaches in Malang City also have it including the one called Pulodoro Beach. It is located in Kedungsalam or Banjarejo Village and belongs to Donomulyo Sub-District. For the information, the location is in the west of Kedung Celeng Beach. According to the locals, most tourists come to the site in order to enjoy two types of waves directly. It is because Pulodoro features both small and big waves. As long as visitors consult the villagers beforehand, they can find the good spot for swimming and playing water safely.
In terms of beauty, no one should doubt it. Pulodoro Beach comes with a sandy shoreline and crystal-clear water. In some parts of the shore, the waves are quite small and the water is shallow. Thus, tourists should choose those spots for swimming. In other parts of the shore, though, the waves are big and fierce. These suit those who love photography, instead. Another interesting allure is the presence of a big coral reef that protects the big waves from coming near to the shoreline! Due to the big size, it even looks like a small island.
