Tourist destinations

In 2011 Ciamis Regency was boosting the (new) tourist destinations with an idea of making a new Regency on the south of the '(virtual) isthmus' (please see the locator map) where there is also a popular tourist destination (Pangandaran Beach) as a cash cow. The tourist destinations are Situ Lengkong Panjalu, Kingdom of Sunda Astana Gede Kawali site and the most potential destination is Curug Tujuh, Cibolang, Panjalu. Curug Tujuh is located 2 kilometres from Cibolang main road. Curug Tujuh means "seven waterfalls", due to there being 7 waterfalls along a 5 kilometres track. At least there are 2 waterfalls with beautiful scenery and the tallest waterfall is more than a hundred metres high.[3]

Situ Lengkong Panjalu, 76.2 hectares has a small island in the centre of the lake called Nusa Gede where many East Javanese people come to visit King of Panjalu's son's cemetery.[4]

In June 2011 the Tourism and Culture Ministry agreed to make the Pangandaran area as National Tourism Site as Bali. It will covers Karapyak Beach in Kalipucang district through Pangandaran Beach in Pangandaran district and to Batu Karas Beach in Cijulang district.[5]

In 2010, Green Canyon was visited by 125,000 visitors and in 2011 by 150,000 visitors. On holiday there were more than 2,000 visitors per day made increase of boat waiting time due to narrow access to Green Canyon and the boat should wait for them who swam.[6]
