Apart from offering the charm of a white sandy beach with clear seawater, Indrayanti also offers the sensation of a romantic, star-studded dinner at a restaurant located on the beach.
Located to the east of Sundak Beach, this beach which is bordered by coral hills is one of the beaches that provides a different view compared to other beaches in Gunungkidul.
Not only decorated with white sand, coral hills, and clear blue water that seem to call tourists to throw themselves into it, Indrayanti Beach is also equipped with restaurants and cafes as well as a row of inns that will pamper tourists. Various menus ranging from seafood to fried rice can be ordered at this restaurant overlooking the beach.
At night, the gazebos on the beach will look beautiful because they are lit by flickering lights. Enjoying dinner at this cafe accompanied by the breeze and the waves of the waves will be an unforgettable romantic experience.
The mention of the name Indrayanti Beach previously generated a lot of controversies. Indrayanti is not the name of a beach, but the name of the cafe and restaurant owner.
Since the name Indrayanti is displayed on the signboard of beach cafes and restaurants, people finally call this beach the name Indrayanti Beach. Meanwhile, the government named this beach Pulang Syawal Beach.
However, the name Indrayanti is much more popular and is more frequently mentioned than Pulang Syawal. The involvement of the private sector in the management of Indrayanti Beach seems to have had a positive impact. In contrast to other rather dirty beaches, the coastline of Indrayanti looks clean and free of litter.
This is because the manager does not hesitate to impose fines for each garbage dumped by tourists carelessly. Therefore Indrayanti is a comfortable place to visit.
Breaking through bushes and shrubs while climbing rocks is also an option. Arriving at the top of the hill, the sea view is bordered by the Indian Ocean. Some birds fly with weeds to build nests. The sound of the waves and the wind combine to create a beautiful and soothing orchestra.
Several beaches separated by hills look lined up, gazebos and houses on stilts look small, while people are like liliput.
As dusk approaches, this place will be a great spot to watch the sun return to its bed.
