Being the second biggest metropolitan of Indonesia, Surabaya’s natural and cultural richness is often overlooked for trades and business opportunities. Get ready to embrace the whole package with these amazing beaches within reach of Surabaya, Indonesia.

1. Ria Kenjeran Beach

Ria Kenjeran is Surabaya’s own beach located about half-an-hour drive away from the city centre. A popular and convenient tropical getaway from the urban area, this beach is well-developed with various entertainment, rides, facilities, and accommodation. But even without all that, Ria Kenjeran Beach boasts one of the best ocean views, with the beaming Suramadu Bridge on one side and the open sea lined with fishermen’s boats on the other.

2. Bentar Beach


This beach is distinguishable by the iconic wooden deck that stretches out to the sea, boasting a sweeping horizon view while being brushed up by the ocean breeze. The coastal area also offers kids’ rides and activities, such as water sports, a ferris wheel, and a beach miniature locomotive. You can also find a lush mangrove forest nearby, which offers an equally stunning and calming sight to behold from the deck.

3. Delegan Beach

Delegan Beach is known and prized for the stunning white sands and quiet waves that make it an excellent place to chill under a palm tree, dip your toes at the smooth powdery sands, feel the ocean breeze, and simply enjoy the coastal beauty. Idyllic as it is, the beach is far from sleepy. Even for more active travellers, the beach serves as an ideal spot to swim, fly a kite, or try your luck at fishing.
