SURYA.co.id | GRESIK - Known as an industry town because there are so many factories and industries here, it makes not surprising to see that there are only a few destinations in Kabupaten Gresik, East Java.

But in near future, there is a new travel destination in Gresik. It is Sendang Banyu Biru. It is located in Desa Lowayu, Kecamatan Dukun, Gresik.

Actually, this attraction has already existed for a long time, even before the Holland imperialism era in Indonesia, with a form of a lake. The visitors could see the water is so blue.

“This place has already existed since I was a child, even before me, old people told me. The water looks so blue from far, and even more blue from a farther place.” Lowayu Achmad Misbahul Abidin, a local resident, said.

This lake with 25 meters diameter still in its quite natural shape with its right and left full of stones.

In 2013, this lake got an improvement, with a better stone arrangement with the cast. This improvement is in order to make the visitors easier to swim and sit.

He added: “Now, it is slightly better than before, but still it needs more to increase the amount of the visitors because until now the visitors only come during the weekend, while in the weekdays only some people are here. Most of them are local residents,”

Meanwhile, according to Misbah, the blue color is existed because of its sulfur content inside the water of Sendang Banyu Biru. It is believed that it could cure itches.

“Most of the visitors that come from outside this town said that know this place because this place could cure itches. But I guess it is only a myth from each people because this place is perfect to relax in leisure time, ” he said.

Constructed to be more beautiful
The view in Sendang Banyu Biru will be more beautiful after the village gets help from Kabupaten Gresik Government. This help will be more intensive to increase the number of visitors.
