Red island beach is one of the leading destinations in Banyuwangi that located in Sumberagung Village, Pesanggaran District, or 60 km from the city centre towards the south of Banyuwangi, it takes 2.5 hours drive when reached by car.


Red Islan or Pulau Merah Beach is so-called since just some 100 meters to the side of the beach is a picturesque little hilly island called Pulau Merah, that is reachable on foot.

This situation is similar to the location of the island of Tanah Lot to the main island of Bali. Unlike at G-land where are found sharp coral rocks by the beach, the beach at Pulau Merah or the Red Island Beach is open sand so that it is also safe for beginner surfers.
