Ujung Kulon National Park, the last haven for wild animals at the western tip of the Java, is home to the almost extinct Java rhinos. However the chances of you to see them are pretty small. But you get to see other animals there, wild and the semi wild ones. In Peucang islands there are lots of monkeys and deer who are not afraid of humans. The underwater life was abundant, nice spot for diving.
Amazing beach, isn’t it beautiful?

The highest points in the Ujung Kulon park are the 620 metre Gunung Honje, the Gunung Payung Range peaks of up to 500 meters and Panaitan Island’s Gunung Raksa at 320 meters. In the central section of the Peninsula is a large region of wilderness known as the Telanca Plateau which reaches 140 metres above sea level, however most consist of low rolling terrain seldom more that 50 metres above sea level.
Surrounding by unusually warm waters, seldom varying from between 29 - 30 degree celcius. The coastline of the Ujung Kulon park are moulded by the sea around them, battered by the Indian Ocean, the long, sandy beaches of the south coast are backed by dunes, lagoons and forest broken by rocky outcrops - a wild and windswept shoreline.
The west coast’s reef-lined shore of Ujung Kulon park has cliffs, promontories and towering sea stacks along sand and boulder beaches overhung by forest, creating the most spectacular coastline in the park.
On the north coast, the sheltered tropical straits lap upon beaches of white sands and coral banks with islands, estuaries, swamps and forest lined shores. Along each coastline is a variety of seascapes which in all their diversity, offer a wide range of absorbing shoreline experiences.
