”My stay in Watu Karung was something from the best I’ve ever done. Watu Karung is a small fishing village, with beautiful beaches and a world-class surf spot, but only for professionals.
There are hardly any tourists in the village and all the locals are super friendly. Had the accommodation a week for myself and enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of this place.
Everything is pretty easy but therein lies the beauty! Very happy to travel again to Watu Karung!”

We stayed here with family of 5, kids all teenagers. Location is excellent, probably one of the most beautiful beaches on Java and about 3-4 hrs from Yogya. Accommodation is basic but clean and the staff is very friendly.

Newly breezing on Mar 2014. Have an Escapade!!
A walk away from famous Bruce Iron spot in Watu Karung (sack of rocks) beach. Watu Karung is simply paradise. It’s amazingly beautiful with reefs, turquoise water, clean beach, soft white sands stretching, and surfing spots offering barrels and world-class waves. Left and right. A serious surfing point, be lucky to meet pro surfer here and less crowd of surfers.
Sleep by the beach in our boutique dorm sleep of 8 beds in an antique Javanese-styled wooden house, called Joglo. Don’t expect hotel or villa concept, this is just a simply self catered accommodation.
