History of Timang Beach:


At first, Timang Beach was not a tourist location but was used by fishermen to catch lobsters around the beach, especially on Timang Island or Watu Panjang. Lobsters live in coral and rocks, so the topography of Timang Island is very suitable for fishermen to catch lobsters. This island has no trees like other islands, only in the form of cliffs.

To reach Timang Island, local fishermen build a simple cable car which they use as a means of transportation to cross the sea. Timang Island’s fame began when one of the famous variety shows from South Korea, “Running Man,” sent two members, Lee Kwang Soo, and Jeon So Min, to visit this beach in 2017. They tried the famous cable car rides, especially when the waves were rough. Since then, many tourists have started coming to Timang Beach to try the exciting cable car rides, so this beach is increasingly known in Gunung Kidul, Yogyakarta.
