Banyuwangi, Pelindo to develop RI’s most integrated marine tourist attraction

The Banyuwangi regional government in East Java is teaming up with state-run port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Pelindo III)’s Tanjung Wangi Port to help develop the country’s most integrated marine tourist spot at the region’s Boom Beach.

Banyuwangi tourism office acting head Yanuar Bramuda said that both parties recently signed a memorandum of understanding and Pelindo III is currently creating a masterplan on how to better develop and manage the beach.

“The 44.2-hectare Boom Beach is going to be developed into an integrated marine tourist area. We are going to divide the area into a commercial zone, a public zone and a fishery zone,” Yanuar said on Friday as quoted by Antara news agency.

In the commercial area, the beach will have a wharf for yachts and cruise ships, as well as hotels and restaurants.

PT Pelindo III’s Tanjung Wangi Port general manager Bangun Swastanto added that the firm would involve its subsidiary, PT Pelindo Properti Indonesia (PPI), to manage Boom Beach.

“The Banyuwangi regional government, Pelindo III and PPI will later set up a joint-venture company to manage the development of Boom Beach,” Bangun said.

The project development is expected to begin at the end of 2015 and be finished by 2017.

In addition, PPI president director Prasetyo said that his company has a number of strategies to better promote the Boom Beach marine spot, including by collaborating with popular yacht clubs such as the Freemantle Sailing Club.

This club usually sails from Bali to Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara Province via Lombok.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
