Green Bay Indonesia is a popular place for a local holiday on East Java Island. I was here on new year’s eve, but this wasn’t my destination. I was headed to Meru Betiri park when my driver; Rudy Hartono, pulled into a random parking area and didn’t tell me where we were going or why we were stopping here. He asked me to give him ten dollars and gave me a big grin. Okay it’s only $10. Let’s see what happens. He came back with a cold beer for me; which is hard to find anywhere in Indonesia, and told me to follow him out to the beach. He pointed me towards a boat that was waiting for me in the water. I still didn’t know where I was going, but he had found me a cold beer so he had my trust…?!
After driving for a couple of hours through the jungle I had no idea there would be a serene beach like this at the foot of the rainforest in Java Indonesia. That massive tree standing over the beach is the first thing I saw when we rounded the point. I spent a couple of hours wandering around. They tried to talk me into playing in the waterfall spilling down the cliff. Unfortunately I wasn’t planning on skinny dipping on a public beach that day and hadn’t brought my trunks with me.
