Permisan Bay

East Java

The best beach by far in the park is at Permisan Bay, an almost sausage-shaped bay with calm waters and a small island in the middle. It's a half-day hike from Sukamade. You can camp on the beach, but bring everything you might need with you as you'll almost certainly be all alone.
