Like at the beginning of the existence of the Drini beach which at that time was not as famous as now. At that time more visitors were more interested in Kukup or Indrayanti beaches in Gunungkidul. But now who doesn’t know its beauty. At that time the beaches seemed to be too crowded for visitors so that the existence of the new beach became new alternative to get a quieter spot on vacation.

When talking about the Watu Bolong Beach, Kepek Beach and other new beaches it might be dominated by the beauty of the beach which is clearly acknowledged by many people. But what about the interaction with local people? The existence of a new beach means the location is not too much known. Even street signs have not been found. Then how to find the location? Of course by interacting with local residents. Can ask where the location is. Then because there are not many public facilities, maybe they provide house or just wash your feet or worship.
