The Beauty of Pangi Beach Blitar is Still a Virgin

Blitar may not be big, nor may it be so famous. Nevertheless, this city has many charms of tourist attractions, one of which is Pangi Blitar beach.

Blitar is a small town in East Java which is known as the resting place of the Proclaimer of the Republic of Indonesia Ir. Sukarno. This city is the southernmost district of East Java, it is not surprising that this city has a fairly long coastline.

News Flash

Pangi Beach has an enchanting beauty. This beach is located in a small basin, with rocks that stand firmly on the left and right sides of the beach.

As a beach located in the southern area of ​​Java, this place has the same characteristics as other beaches in the southern route, namely big waves. However, because of its slightly concave shape and flanked by corals on the right and left, this beach can be used to play water and swim (although you still have to stay alert).

The infrequent visitors who come make this beach relatively quiet and clean. The natural and beautiful impression is immediately felt when you arrive. The waves of the sea chasing one after another reach the stretch of white sand on the beach. The stretch of white sand stretches beautifully along the shoreline.

Adding to the beauty of this beach is a row of pine trees that grow not far from the beach. The lush pine trees seem to provide a place to relax and take shelter from the hot sun while still enjoying the beauty of the surrounding atmosphere.

The combination of green pine trees combined with the blue of the sea gives a special sensation for visitors to this beach.

In addition to the beach and rows of pine trees, Pangi Beach has another feature that is rarely found in other tourist attractions. The specialty is the presence of a river estuary that forms a brackish lake.

If you walk towards the reef on the left of the beach, you will find this lake.

This fairly wide lake is usually used for swimming and washing yourself after being tired of playing water on the beach. The water is calm, clear and refreshing, making you feel at home soaking in the lake. This lake is more beautiful with the presence of mangrove trees around the lake. Its stems that soar into the sky and roots that stick through the surface of the water create a charm of its own beauty.

For those of you who love camping activities, Pangi Beach can be an option. On this beach there is a flat area that is wide enough for you and your group to set up a tent, especially in the grove of pine trees.

In addition to its safe distance from the beach, pine trees also help provide shade. The existence of a lake also makes it easier for you to get clean water for camping needs.
