Have you ever heard of Pantai Indrayanti or Indrayanti Beach? It's a new tourist resort on south coast of Yogyakarta. The beach has white sand, crsytal distict ocean water, and complete with cottages and restaurants that surrounds it. Because the place is uncalculated than Parangtritis, so the place is still very lush.
How to get there?
Here's the map *just click to large it*
It's located at east of Sundak beach, precisely at Desa Tepus (Tepus Village) on district Wonosari, Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta (it may taken approximately 2 hours from Yogyakarta). Though here's no Indrayanti Beach written on the map, but you can see clearly, Indrayanti Beach located between Sundak Beach and Siung Beach. You can travel through Tepus Village fork to the south. Then if you are in doubt, you can ask local people for the right direction to Indrayanti Beach.
Actually there are many other beaches on Wonosari coast which are still pure from travelers. This is list of beautiful beaches in Gunung Kidul
