One-day trip to Pacitan

Pacitan is a small seaside resort with a beautiful strip of white beach and a small harbour. On this day trip to the east of the island you will pass through a very special landscape. You will drive through limestone area with small round clay hills on your way to the bay. Here you can eat on the beach. Pacitan beach is popular with surfers, so chances are you can enjoy some surfing. On the way you will pass Goa Tabuhan. This is a beautiful stalactite cave where gamelan music is played on the stalactites and stalagmites. The stalactites and stalagmites look like large impressive pillars and are the result of a chemical reaction between rain and limestone minerals. The journey to Pacitan takes 2.5 to 3 hours, which is why this trip takes a day.
