Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach is nice and good especially I could see the fog in the beach which is very rare to be seen in the beach at 10-11 am in the early afternoon

Since Pantai Parangtritis is very open space for public, I guess I have to find the way to enjoy this beach. I usually arrived here at 4 or 4.30 pm and waiting for the sunset. Don't expect less people there, so I always make 'a private space' with my daughter and not getting close with other people.

We stayed in an hotel in Jogya with my family and decided to go there for a different afternoon.
You pay to enter Parangtritis road and you pay heavy parking fee’s after ehehehe
The place is average, nice beach indeed, but one cannot swim there for various local reasons.
Nice friendly peoples around, not much good food..
Anyway we had good time there and it beats the busy city life.

We took a ride for almost 1hour 30 minutes to Parangtritis Beach from the downtown of Yogyakarta, perhaps it was the nearest one outside the city. The beach was famous for her black sand, but the big waves signified that it was not suitable to swim in such rough sea. Local visitors crowded everywhere, even lots of garbage washed up on the beach, Horse ride non stop at the beach i feel sorry for the horse i can't help :(.. Just spend less 30 minutes the decide to leave this place early..

This beach could be better if visitors put their rubbish in the bin. We are here for the view because swimming is prohibited due to dangerous rip current. Tried to ride on the ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) but the vendor rejected us because we are foreigners not locals. Apparently a foreigner is being stereotyped as careless driver (???)

An unforgettable experience. We the theater group from the city of Jogja held a vocal training against the waves of Parangtiris Beach. The vocal practice site in the rocky shore region to the east with loud crashing waves, so that our screams sound like sparrows in a storm and thunder. Very exciting while foreign tourists lay on the sand staring at the blue sky and the vast sea to the horizon. The continuous carriage of horses passing by takes local tourists who are lazy to walk.

I took a ride for ninety minutes to Parangtritis Beach from the downtown of Yogyakarta, perhaps it was the nearest one outside the city. The beach was famous for her black sand, but the big waves signified that it was not suitable to swim in such rough sea. Local visitors crowded everywhere, even lots of garbage washed up on the beach, they seemed to adapt to the surrounding quite naturally. Small warungs, stalls, huts with bathing taps etc. were lining in a long queue along the main passage. Two to three horse carriages were strolling on sand, a whole range of activities were in sight, from having massage, hair-braiding , playing beach football, or even sitting idly under the sun umbrellas. My driver Sewa offered me a suggestion for going to a nearby fish market, only half an hour ride from the beach, where I could buy seafood for early dinner. Finally I bought crabs, squids, scallops, mussels from two fish stalls inside the market, a little bit disappointment was no lobster on sale. Simultaneously, a proprietress of a warung was willing to cook for us with drinks and other dishes provided. What a delicious dinner with unbelievable price.

This is probably the best place to drown in Asia. Rip tides and undertow (deep trough to suck you down) will bring you to meet the Queen of the Southern Sea, Nyai Roro Kidul. Make sure that you wear a green outfit as this will match the colour of her dress. Superstitious locals will discourage you from wearing green if you are entering the water. Once in a while, a terrific wave will come from Antarctica to bring you out to sea. Contrary to what others have said, there is actually a life-saving SAR (Search and Rescue) outfit at the main beach whose main objective is to save lives and thwart any suicide attempts.
Since swimming is officially not allowed, most visitors will partake in other activities like praying to Roro Kidul, horse carriage riding, ATV, kite-flying, sun tanning and general sitting around on mats. There is a cosy seafood restaurant (Cafe de Paris) at the eastern end of the beach, which I visited twice (recommendation nasi goreng). As this is the only beach in my life that I did not attempt to swim in, I can only give a rating of One. I also saw a dirty stream entering the sea at one point with possible raw sewage. Otherwise this beach is surprisingly clean and quite free of plastic unlike Bali's Kuta Beach. There is little reason to come here since there is no swimming here and the only great view is from the hill where you need to pay 100k to enter the Queen of the South Resort.

Black sand beach with many stalls to get some food. Wonderful photo opportunity of the sunset and you get to ride a horse here too. The waves are perfect for couples and friends to stroll around and to have a perfect evening.
