SURYA.co.id | SURABAYA - Surabaya is known for being a trade and service city, but still, there is a natural travel destination. There is 200 hectares mangrove forest in Kecamatan Wonorejo that become a natural travel destination.
It also completes the beach ecosystem in the eastern beach of Surabaya (Pamurbaya). Now, the development of the facilities is still in processes, such as wood footpaths, monitoring tower, and deck.
There are vendors in the entrance area that serve fish and sambal dishes. There is no admission to enter the mangrove forest.
There is only the parking fee that the visitors need to pay to park their vehicles.
There are boats too for the visitors who want to experience different vibes of mangrove forest.
Tri Rismaharani, Mayor of Surabaya, told that mangrove tourism still does not bring the beneficial effect for the local residents.
“It is still not significant, but wait for 2 years,” she said.
Not only as a travel destination, the existence of mangrove forest is very important to protect the land from flood and tsunami.
“Mangrove forest is also the perfect place for fish to do its reproduction in any beach ecosystem,” she said.
