Un­spoiled and rugged Gu­nung Kidul re­gency in south­east­ern Yo­gyakarta prov­ince is at the ready with ma­jor chal­lenges for ad­ven­ture- lov­ing visi­tors. They can start their es­capades at Siung Beach in Duwet vil­lage, Pur­wodadi sub­dis­trict, Te­pus dis­trict, which is strate­gi­cally nes­tled among many nat­u­ral at­trac­tions. They camp out on the sand by rent­ing a tent from lo­cal ad­ven­ture tour com­pany Katama Ad­ven­ture ( Rp 85,000 per night/ ac­com­mo­dates up to four peo­ple). At sun­set, there is fun rock climb­ing ( Rp 35,000 per per­son). Climbers are bound to feel a surge in adren­a­line as they hear waves slap­ping against the cliff’s crevices be­low them.

In the evening, they can sate their ap­petite worked up from the day’s ac­tiv­i­ties with a de­li­cious bar­be­cue of freshly caught fish, for the un­be­liev­ably cheap price of Rp 15,000 per serv­ing.
