As many fishermen return early morning, it is a good moment to spot the activities in this friendly authentic fishermen village called Sendang Biru and the biggest fish auction at the southern coast of Java. Sendang Biru is still small and the tourist industry is hardly developed. Meet the people and take a closer look at the daily activities of these fishermen and their families.
Then the romantic beaches are calling you.... most beaches are hardly visited. Unspoiled, white, stretched out and just amazingly beautiful.

Sunset over Mt. Bromo

After your dive in local cultures and sandy beaches, you will continue to Cemara Lawang village. This village is interestingly situated at the edge of the ancient caldera in which one can find the active volcano Bromo. When time is sufficient, you can explore the traditional Hindu village while finding a superb spot to witness the sunset over Mt. Bromo. Village life at such an height is interesting besides the fact that you will encounter a Hindu culture.

The sunrise tour starts at 03.00 in the morning. A local Jeep will bring you to the viewpoint at Mt. Pananjakan. If you wish to see the sunrise from a less famous viewpoint - and therefore less crowded - just inform us. We can also arrange a guide to hike to the unknown spots. Weather conditions define the views, the colors and the feelings in the atmosphere.

After the sun has risen, you can opt for a cup of coffee or tea before heading to Mt. Bromo. To get near this volcano you will have to cross the black sea of sand. Your driver will stop near the Hindu temple Luhur Poten. Then it is a 45 minutes walk to the top of this impressive crater. Take your time.

Once back at the Jeep, you will be brought back to Cemara Lawang. You can have breakfast before you check out. Then you head to the Madakaripura waterfalls. These enchanting waterfalls will brand some memories.

After Mt. Bromo you can easily head both to the west and the east. If you need some advice, we are happy to help you out.
