Wohkudu Beach is a beach located in Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta. Although the name is not as popular as other white sand beaches, this beach can be a solution for visitors who want beach views and natural beauty that is still beautiful and awake. This beach is also adjacent to Kesirat Beach.
The beach is flanked by two cliffs and hills that are about twenty meters high and long enough to reach the entrance. The two cliffs protect from the strong night wind and the heat of the sun during the day. That's what makes Wohkudu beach a suitable beach for camping.
Another reason this beach is suitable to be used as a camping area is the land which is not wide but flat, so it is comfortable to set up a tent. The campground on Wohkudu Beach is divided into three, namely the first land that immediately welcomes visitors when they arrive at the location.
In this area, visitors are far from the risk of being swept away by the waves and can make a bonfire. The land of the two beaches is very similar to the first land, it's just that the second land is wider than the first land and the distance to the coastline is closer. While on the third land which is on the white sand of Wohkudu, the advantage of camping on this land is that it is very close to the shoreline, but unfortunately this land cannot make bonfires according to beach regulations and also this land is vulnerable to being swept away by waves if the beach is high tide.
If this beach is suitable to be used as a camping place, but unfortunately this beach is not suitable for being a water playground or seeing sunrise and sunset because the sun on this beach rises and sets not into the sea. On the wohkudu coastline, visitors will be greeted with large rocks that can hurt, and also thorns hidden between the rocks.
