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.

You can also find a lush mangrove forest nearby, which offers an equally stunning and calming sight to behold from the deck.
