We came to Batu Karas to take advantage of what our guide book described as a "Quiet fishing village with awesome breaks"

We were a little suspicious of our 2007 guide book being a little out of date, and this was confirmed when we awoke the next morning to discover half of Jakarta had followed us. The beach was teaming with screaming kids and an armada of banana boats were out at sea.

It was not a complete disappointment as the waves were perfect for surfing and we spent two full days working on our surfing. Big improvements were made, but it will be at least next year before the Pro Surf Tour is a realistic option...

After 3 nights and two days we took a three hour bus east, then a four hour train further east to reach the central Javan city of Yogyakarta.
