ABOUT SUKAMADE TURTLE BEACH:
This is the most appropriate phrase to describe a trip to this national park well known as Sukamade Beach. There are no tourists in many quantities. The only silence of the woods, the sound of rivers, the hospitality of local people, and cacao, and coffee plantations.
Crossing rivers, after 3 hours on the road and 2 hours of a bumpy road, your trip will be full of challenges. Deep in the jungle, there is a beach where the landing of turtles.
7 species of sea turtles in the world and 6 species of sea turtles in Indonesia, 4 with species landing and laying eggs on Sukamade Beach. Seeing the turtles lay their eggs at the night is the most poignant sight that can be seen by visitors. Imagine the sea turtles taking a distance of thousands of kilometers from their origin in the other parts of the continent far away and just laying eggs on Sukamade Beach.
ACCOMMODATION IN SUKAMADE BEACH:
The conditions here are very simple and super basic, so there is no ac, tv, fan, or hot shower, but this place will change your mind about how we take care of this area to be not a mass tourist attraction, where you can find a fancy place to sleep and better road to drive. But the national park of Sukamade Turtle Beach, also called Merubetiri National Park has limited its volume of visitors by not building new accommodations or any facilities that attract more tourists to come.
Anyway, in this place, you will have a small canteen where they will prepare food that we bought on the market on the way to the National park, and watch out for your belongings because there are a lot of naughty monkeys around.
