Here are several reasons why you don’t need to visit G-Land, Banyuwangi. Of course it’s presented with pictures to convince you. Do not enjoy this post.
And please don’t go here. This river with mangroves on its sides don’t need you admire its clear water and the blue sky and the clouds. There are some abandon houses on the bank of this river too, creating an ironic and dramatic view.
And yeah, this beach doesn’t need your presence. It will stay as beautiful as usual. The sand will always be soft and tingling. The breeze will always makes everybody smiles, as usual. Its sky is blue not because of you. By the way, do you know there are lots of turtles nesting here? Absolutely not fascinating.
This little dude will find its way into the ocean, without you. So, don’t bother visiting him. And not this dude only, there are thousands of its brothers and sisters. When you see them flipped their fins, wou’ll find that it’s so eye-opening that God has created such beautiful creature, and it is our job to keep them safe and nurture them. But … why am I telling you this story? You’re not interested at all, aren’t you?
This peaceful Africa look-alike landscape is filled with peacocks, deers, Javanese bulls, sea-eagles, and other awesome animals and trees and grass and breathtaking view. When I was here, I kept on whispering to myself, Oh, God, someday I wanna visit this place again. And hopefully that someday would be longer than today. And yeah, they don’t need you visiting them. Hooray!
And to convince you not to visit this awesome place, here’s a wider look to the savanna. No, you don’t wanna be here. By the way, an uninteresting fact for you: there’s a place called: Taman Nasional Baluran, the guide told me it’s bigger than Sadengan Savana, with so many visuals that will make you smile instantly.
The Fantastic Pancur Beach at G-Land, Banyuwangi. The algae will always be green. The sky will always be blue. The scenery will always be as amazing as it could be, and no, you don’t need to travel all the way to visit this place.
Look, the hijab girl was so happy playing on the beach shore. Maybe she was counting how many sands on the beach. Maybe she was murmuring, God, I should visit this place again. Or maybe she came here with her loved ones, or family, and they were all grateful for such fine weather and fine breeze and fine beach. She had a great-great time without you, that’s for sure.
This awesome beach doesn’t need you to leave your footsteps here, thank you very much.
Oh, don’t mind the green-red-brown-turquoise-deep blue color presented on the beach here. It has been like that since a long, long time.
I bet you’ve seen beaches like this where you live anyway, so why bother coming here?
Oh, look at the unique sands. There are only several places in the world where the sands are like this. The locals called it ‘pasir gotri’. But that wouldn’t interest you, would it?
It’s almost sunset in G-Land. The surfers are back to the shore, sipping their drinks, watching the sun sets while sharing laughters. But why do you even bother to look at this incredible picture and the stories?
… or this one?
This is Tiger Track Beach in the morning. Beginner surfers love to surf here, because its waves are just ‘right’. Not too big, not too small. Of course it’s like private beach everyday with its white sands. But I know you’re not interested in all this.
The pic is unedited – I didn’t even bother to straighten the horizon – The best thing about you not coming here, the beach won’t get offended. So, yay.
I bet you don’t wanna do fun stuff like this …
Or get your hands dirty by helping the local planting the mangrove trees like this …
… or take a pic of your feet in this autumn-like ground, like this …
… or feel the cold water of the beach like this …
… or get a candid shot with awesome background like this …
Thank you, @raja_wisata! The whole Banyuwangi trip was really awesome.
