Parangtritis is a well-known tourist attraction in Yogyakarta besides other beach objects such as Samas, Baron, Kukup, Krakal and Glagah. Parangtritis has a unique view that is not found on other tourism objects, namely in addition to the big waves and the presence of sand mountains around the coast, which is commonly called gumuk. This tourism object has been managed by the Bantul Regency Government quite well, starting from lodging facilities and markets that sell Parangtritis souvenirs.
In Parangtritis there are also ATVs, horse-drawn carriages & horses that can be rented to walk along the coast from east to west. Besides that, Parangtritis is also a place for aeromodeling.
