Better known as G-Land, Plengkung Beach is an internationally recognised surfing spot with an enchanting curved coastline and offers some of the most outstanding waves that reach up to 6 metres in height, aptly being dubbed The Seven Giant Waves Wonder by avid surfers.
It is good to note that the challenging waves at G-Land should only be ventured by professionals. Those not keen on surfing may simply enjoy smelling the sea breeze, listening to the ferocious waves and admiring the striking views.
Sukamade Beach is another favourite at Banyuwangi, famous for its turtle sightings. At night time, the female turtles work their way up to the shore to lay their eggs and since breeding season is between October and March, it is best to plan your visit to this remote beach accordingly.
Alternatively, hit up Red Beach to check out its scarlet-hued soil and stunning sunsets, Wedi Ireng which is a hidden paradise with volcanic black sand, or the undisturbed Teluk Hijau Beach that is coincidentally positioned next to a small waterfall and fresh water stream as an added bonus.

Out of all the peculiar sights to see in Banyuwangi, the Gandrung Terracotta Park is pretty high up on the list for good reason. If anything, its terracotta statues come off a little creepy, but in a super intriguing manner.
There is something special about waterfalls that simply invigorate the soul and as a nature escape in its own right, Banyuwangi is the perfect place to be chasing waterfalls, with each one entailing a whole new experience. This list does not even cover all of them!
Situated 45 kilometres from the Banyuwangi city centre is De DJawatan, a sprawling forest spanning 6 hectares endowed with an abundance of towering trembesi trees, which are capable of soaring up to 40 metres in height.
