SAWARNA BEACH:THE BEAUTY OF RURAL WEST JAVA 

Those who follow this trip is the Founder Sony Alpharian Indonesia; Faizal Ortho, Sony Alpharian Jakarta; Ifur Syaifurrahman Syahrir; Sony Malaysia Trainer Meng Keat and Shashi Kumar.

"Our other CLONE ROBOCOP aka IFUR was driving almost 1200KM and the highest place is 800 meters above sea level"

Landscapes of natural beauty tucked away overlooking the Indian Ocean. White sandy beaches, clear blue water and lush rolling green nan. Reaching 65 km long coastline dotted reefs and white sand. This beach is the most beautiful beaches of the five beaches are owned by the Province of Banten.

Sawarna name of the beach, located in a coastal village which has a variety of interesting attractions to visit such as beaches, rivers, forests, rock cliffs, caves, and agrotourism. This beautiful coastal region fused with the mystical story of Nyai Roro Kidul and exploitation of coal in Bayah and Lebak by foreign invaders.
You will be impressed with the vast stretches of rice fields, beautiful panoramic view of the village, blowing cool air typical agricultural village, and rows of palm trees and teak trees that lined the fence like a calf village.

Arrived at Sawarna beach stiff and exhausted after a heavy seven hour car ride from Jakarta.Big thanks to my friend from jakarta ‎"IFUR" for crazy driver. I desperately needed to stretch and snap my bones back into their proper place. In fact, what I really needed was a massage, but that just wasn’t going to happen, so I settled for arching my back while breathing in the crisp sea air.

It was still at least few hour until dawn, so we decided to drop off our bags at the Motel "Malibu Resort" had simple lunch. Waited for beautiful sunset but to bad no magical light that day but the place was great for long exposure & human interest. After such a long all day car journey this was just a magical way to start the day.

We spent the next few hours exploring Sawarna beach with full gear camera try to "compo" any subject; listening to the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks and rolling up the beach "scary!". If you come here you can’t miss the fact that Sawarna beach is popular with surfers " their call mini Hawaii" 

Here the beaches waiting to be captivating eyes and heart. If you are a hobby of surfing or surfing why not feel the waves are spectacular even been sampled surfers from America, Australia, Japan, and Korea.

Cikaso WaterfallCikaso Waterfall

Cikaso waterfall is a dramatic waterfall on the Cikaso River in Western Java.

The Cikaso waterfall is on the Cikaso River, which originates in North Sukabumi and flows south to the Surade District in South Sukabumi. It lies in the Ujung tourist area between Jampang Kulun and Surade The waterfalls have a height of almost 80 metres (260 ft), with three parallel drops along cliffs that are about 100 feet (30 m) wide. The falls are accessible from the Ciniti, Cibitung village in the Cibitung Kulon sub-Jampang. They can be reached by foot or by motor boat.

From the Sawarna Beach five of us went to the waterfall which is located north of Sukabumi. We do work insane and crazy drivers willing driver in the middle of the night. This trip takes 8 hours with only 150km, but the road leading there was very severe, the highest is about 800 meters above sea level.

Once we see the waterfalls, we will be charmed by their beauty. Under the waterfalls, there's a jade-green pond where we can swim or take a bath. There are also big boulders adorned by green moss. We can sit on a boulder and enjoy the picturesque scenery.

Location for a photo is challenging for us as tourists because the place is very slippery and too much water splashing along with windy conditions. do not know where to put the tripod securely and the best main compo

I have also used the camera and lens to get a piece of the picture even splashes of water.
