An oddly-laid out beach at Yogyakarta, the Timang Beach is quite unique. It is at a boundary between the sea and the land which is located in Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It guarantees beautiful sunset views, a gondola ride to the cliff on the other side of the beach with large waves reaching out to you, and a delicious lobster meal. The sand at the beach is white. The Pandanus plants are lined up encompassing the beach which adds to the beautiful picturesque view of Timang Beach.
Timang Beach is not the kind of beach meant for strolling along the seashore and dipping your feet in the ocean water or even swimming in the sea, for that matter. The waters at the beach are rich in lobsters. The waves are so strong that it is very difficult to go rowing. Smart fishermen thus came up with an idea of building a gondola by hand. They then started using their fishing nets to capture the lobsters.
