Central Java, Kukup Beach


Kukup Beach is rich for marine biota and beautiful fishes. It looks like a natural aquarium with coral on its coastal line. Tourists can buy ornamental fish, congereel, starfish, and even baby shark to add to be put into their aquariums at home.

Tourists can catch them with a small dragnet which is sold by hawkers along the beach. Kukup beach keeps exotic coral caves suitable to shade when the sun is blazing hot. Just similar to the coastal line, the caves also offer marine biota which live in the puddle formed from the sea water which enter the caves. However, visitors must be very careful before splashing into the water because there are many coral reefs in the shallow water area.

Kukup beach is a model area of beach tourism management. It is even the pilot project of beach development and management in Gunungkidul. Kukup coastal area is managed autonomously by the local people.
