The beach is a short and limited to the reefs is precisely the object of a very interesting photo. When you do not mind sweating, you can follow the path on the left side of the beach to reach the top of the cliff. Approximately 10-15 minutes it takes to get to the top. From there, you will see the whole beach and large rocks on the left and right. Also seen in the Wediombo Beacheast side Siung. In addition to being a tourist attraction and an interesting photo, the area around the Siung Beach also often used as a rock climbing gym. Students in Yogyakarta nature lovers and even outside the city often practice here, taking advantage of cliffs with varying sizes and diverse paths. Because only known in recent years, siung not much visited by tourists. Still clear seawater, coral reefs were still free from the hands of ignorant humans. The locals have built a small shop, toilets and praying on this beach. Unlike most resorts, the prices on the beach is still quite normal that this beach can be a cheaper option streets for you. When the stomach began to ache, you can visit one of the stalls that lined the shore.
