Information of

Citirem Beach

This geosite consists of lava rock outcrops with pillow structures and beautiful white sand. Here there is an outcrop of the Citirem Formation pillow lava which has the same age as the ophiolite complex. This basaltic lava has a pillow structure which characterizes the freezing process that occurs in the marine environment. Apart from the pillow lava outcrops, there is also a beach with white sand, which is a place for green turtle breeding site managed by the BKSDA. Not far from this location, you can also find boulders of coral limestone which are thought to have originated from younger rock deposition. This location can be reached, only on foot or by patrol motorbikes which are usually used by BKSDA officers, where the geosite is still included in the Cikepuh Wildlife Reserve area (Picture attached).
