Jetis Beach, Purworejo / Pantai Jetis, Purworejo

Proceed to my next destination, Jetis Beach – which is located on Ketawang’s area. By the way, I previously stop at the soup stall “Bu Rambat “on the way to this beach. The soup was so tasty and cheap – they uniquely provide a complete chicken satay with peanut sauce to accompany its meal. I recommend the travelers to stop by this soup stall.

Perjalanan berlanjut ke tujuan gue selanjutnya, Pantai Jetis yang letaknya di daerah Ketawang. O ya, sebelumnya mampir ke warung soto “Bu Rambat” dalam perjalanan menuju pantai ini. Sotonya enak dan murah – uniknya mereka menyediakan sate ayam lengkap dengan bumbu kacang untuk menemani makan sotonya. Gue rekomendasikan para traveler mampir ke warung soto ini. Top!

Down the street from the hills to the lowland area on the beach quite draining, plus the weather was hot and humid. In Purworejo itself there are several beaches, only Ketawang Beach frequented traveler to come in. In Ketawang itself there are two beaches, Pantai Jetis and Ketawang Indah. I prefer go to Jetis beach because according to the locals, it still rarely visited by the traveler, and it seems interesting to explore.

Menyusuri jalan dari area perbukitan menuju dataran rendah di pantai cukup menguras tenaga, ditambah cuaca saat itu panas dan lembab. Pantai Jetis, Ketawang terletak di daerah pesisir Purworejo. Di Purworejo sendiri terdapat beberapa pantai, hanya saja yang sering didatangi traveler adalah Pantai Ketawang. Di daerah Ketawang sendiri ternyata ada 2 pantai, yaitu Pantai Jetis dan Ketawang Indah. Gue lebih memilih pantai Jetis karena menurut penduduk setempat masih jarang didatangi traveler, dan sepertinya menarik untuk di explore.

I got here a day late in the afternoon, and waited for sunset. Jetis beach itself is coastal landforms Pantai Selatan, with high tide – this place is perfect for the traveler who likes surfing. The beach has black sand and containing iron. Previously there were some iron miner operators around the beach, but now reduced in numbers – perhaps because at some points of the beach had abrasion. There are some stalls that provide food and drinks, but it’s just closed when I came here – because it is the fasting month. Fortunately I still have some logistics on my bag.

Gue sampai di sini hari menjelang sore, dan sengaja menunggu sunset. Pantai Jetis sendiri merupakan deretan pesisir pantai Selatan, dengan ombak yang cukup tinggi – tempat ini cocok buat traveler yang suka selancar air. Pantai ini berpasir hitam dan mengandung pasir besi. Sebelumnya terdapat beberapa operator penambang pasir besi di sekeliling pantai, namun sekarang sudah berkurang jumlahnya – mungkin karena di beberapa titik pantai mengalami abrasi. Juga ada beberapa warung yang menyediakan makanan dan minuman, hanya saja ketika gue datang ke sini mereka tutup – mungkin karena waktu itu adalah bulan puasa. Untungnya logistik gue masih ada di tas.

Go fishing / Menjala ikan

On the beach there are some activities of the people, they just walk to spend time waiting for fasting break. Some of them were catching fish or fishing. I was interested with one family who catch fish and I was allowed to take their picture. Their son – Affan – attracts my attention. He is energetic child. Several times I took his pictures, and he is happy.

Di pantai Jetis menjelang sore itu banyak aktifitas orang-orang, ada yang sekedar jalan-jalan menghabiskan waktu jelang buka puasa. Ada yang menjala ikan dan memancing. Gue sendiri, lebih tertarik dengan satu keluarga yang beraktifitas menjala ikan dan gue diperbolehkan memfoto mereka. Anak lelaki mereka – Affan – menarik perhatian gue. Anak ini energik sekali. Beberapa kali gue motret anak ini.

This beach should be managed better by the local authorities, there are lack of tourist facilities here. There are some toilets and stalls to eat and drink that can be counted by fingers. Moreover, the signage about safety of visitors were also a little. Quite different from Ketawang Indah beach, the next door neighbor beach who was a row with it.

Pantai Jetis merupakan pantai yang seharusnya bisa dikelola lebih baik lagi oleh PEMDA setempat, minimnya fasilitas layaknya tempat wisata tidak ada. Hanya terdapat toilet seadanya dan warung-warung makan dan minum yang jumlahnya bisa dihitung dengan jari. Apalagi tanda-tanda yang menyangkut keselamatan pengunjung pun juga nihil. Cukup berbeda dengan Pantai Ketawang Indah, tetangga sebelah yang masih satu deret dengan Pantai Jetis.

  • Jetis beach should be well managed by local authorities, whereas a lot of potentials that can be highlighted
  • The lack of public facilities – toilets, food stalls, signposts about visitor’s safety
  • It is recommended to come here in the morning or in the afternoon
  • Not recommended for swimming , the waves are too big
  • Sunblock must be taken
  • Wear comfortable shoes or sandals, not a high heels
  • Bring logistical if you do not want to starve
  • Pantai Jetis belum dikelola dengan baik oleh PEMDA setempat, padahal banyak potensi yang bisa ditonjolkan
  • Minimnya fasilitas umum – toilet seadanya, sedikit warung makan, papan penunjuk keselamatan
  • Disarankan datang ke sini di waktu pagi atau menjelang sore hari; panas banget kalau siang
  • Tidak disarankan untuk berenang, ombak terlalu besar
  • Sunblock wajib dibawa
  • Pakai sepatu atau sandal yang nyaman, jangan sepatu high heels
  • Bawa logistik yang cukup kalau nggak mau kelaparan
