And for dreadlockboy his journey brought him all the way to Parangkusumo Beach in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Forget the idyllic, touristy beaches of Bali for a second, and try out this picturesque wonder.

“When you visit Indonesia, especially Yogyakarta, there’s a unique beach that you must visit. Parangkusumo Beach is located 25 kilometers from the city of Yogyakarta. Basically, Parangkusumo Beach is adjacent to Parangteritis Beach (the most popular beach in Yogyakarta).” – dreadlockboy

“What’s unique about Parangkusumo Beach are the sand dunes or what people used to call as “Gumuk Pasir” in Yogya. People usually said it was a desert because it really looks like a desert. And this is the only sand dune in Indonesia.” – dreadlockboy

He shares other fun things that you can do at this gem of a place, which is definitely a great alternative destination should you ever find yourself tired of the usual touristy jaunts.
