Java Island is the island with the most populous population in Indonesia, the center of government, economy, culture, and education. Divided into 6 provinces consisting of Jakarta, Banten, West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta, and East Java, Java Island is a reflection of Indonesia with its own unique culture, food and nature. The Bentang Jawa route was chosen to minimize interaction with heavy traffic, although as a provincial and national route, interaction with large vehicles such as trucks and buses will be unavoidable.
Bentang Jawa participants will depart from the westernmost province, namely Banten, precisely on Carita Beach, exploring the southern coast of Banten province, passing famous tourism landmarks of Banten and West Java, such as Sawarna Beach, Pelabuhan Ratu, and Pangandaran.
The varied contours off the south coast, will guarantee continuous beautiful sceneries one after another: beaches, fishing villages, cultivated forests, and hills. Entering Central Java and Yogyakarta, the typical coastal scenery will be replaced by shady green mountains, hills, and rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. The Kretek and Panggang hills will provide a challenge as well as an extraordinary view.
East Java as the ultimate route presents the climax in terms of challenges and scenery, mystical old forests, wide and swift rivers, the magnificent Bromo-Tengger-Semeru mountain ranges, and strands of hills that alternately will be presented without stopping, before a long pleasant descent to the city of Banyuwangi.
