great beaches near yogjakarta indonesia

lm an Australian traveler, lve been living in the baron kukup area, 60 km south east of yogjakarta for 9 years. my wife and l have a warung(cafe) at kukup beach (one km from baron beach).l'd like to give some general travel info for anyone interested in visiting this area as there is little or no info in the travel books.
firstly the beaches along this part of the southern coast of java are very beautiful,far better than anything you;will find on Bali.there are many beaches each with its own look and feel ,also there are many areas along the coast that are  virtualy uninhabited so you can have a beach to yourself .activities in this area include swimming (baron sundak beach) surfing(krakal wodiombo beach) rock climbing (ciung beach) and snorkeling and turtle watching (wodiombo beach). This area will also interest  those people wishing to learn more about javaness hindu and kejawin culture .its also a great area for walking there are walking trails right along the coast with incredible view from the cliff tops. prices for food and accomadation are at least half that of Bali the local culture has not been perverted by mass tourism and you can enjoy the beaches without people hasseling you . to get here take a bus to the main bus station (bus 4 from maliboro street) then take the bus to wonosari (5000 to 6000 rph),get down at the wonosari bus station go out and walk south(turn left) down jl baron for 50 metres there you will find the number 16 bus to baron kukup (costs 10.000 rph please tell the driver  first if you want to go to kukup) l recommend the kukup nature lnn(hotel of pak hardy) as the accomadation in baron is not so good. motor bikes can be rented for trips to the other beaches(about 25.000 per day plus petrol) krakal beach is 7 km from kukup sundak beach is 8km and wodiombo is 25km ,buses leave for wonosari every half hour from baron one km from kukup.lf you need any help or information  you can find me at dp cafe kukup you can also telephone me on 087839358174 or 087839801838 .if you want to see photos of this area you can find them in  the photo section of my web site.ONE DARYLSPRAKE COMPOSER.COM
