Alas Purwo National Park
“Alas Purwo” stands for “the first forest” in Javanese. It is believed to be the place where the first creatures on earth emerged from the ocean. Today, it houses savannah, mangrove forests, turtle conservation, Hindu temple and caves, holding uncountable wonders in its more than 400 km2 area. A two hours’ drive to south-eastern direction from Jiwa Jawa Resort Ijen, the national park is especially known for its surfing location and wildlife spotting.
