Green bay, natural beauty in Banyuwangi. Green Bay or what is called “Teluk Hijau” is a wonderful tourist destination in Banyuwangi, East Java. Though it is not as popular as Sukamade or Rajegwesi, its soft white sand gives typical beauty that amazes anyone who visits it. The green bay also has an eight metres waterfall and beautiful coral. The view of the Green Bay is green, which is derived from the water. Of course, it is not that the water is truly green, but because of the algae in the water. It reflects the green colour to the surface of the water. The Green Bay is part of Meru Betiri National Park.
