Hidden behind the Sewu Mountain Range lies a rarity thatís hardly seen elsewhere in Indonesia Ė a waterfall by the beach that falls directly into the sea.

Known as Jogan Beach, it sits humbly on the south coast of the Gunungkidul region of Yogyakarta, facing the vast Indian Ocean.

Located two hoursí drive away from Yogyakarta city, Jogan Beach is often overlooked by most visitors as it requires an additional several hundred metresí walk from the more commonly known Siung Beach parking area.

Perfect for those looking for a bit of privacy.

The waterfall flowing into the sea is not just an astonishing sight.

Visitors brave enough can enjoy a freshwater shower beneath the waterfall by either rappelling or climbing down the rocks. But be careful Ė although the rocks have been installed with wooden hand-and-foot grips, they may still be slippery, especially during the rainy season.

The obstacles donít just end there Ė past the jagged coral rocks is the habitat of thousands of tiny crabs that wonít hesitate to snip at your feet! They may be only a painless pinch at first, but a few dozen might just become a nuisance.

Location: Tepus, Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Getting There: From Yogyakarta City, head East towards Wonosari. turn right Southwards onto Jl. Kasatrian towards Pantai Siung, a well known recreational beach. Your destination is a 400m walk from Siung Beach.
