Unlike the beaches in Gunungkidul which are bordered by cliffs, the edge of Glagah Beach looks very long without a barrier. As far as the eye can see, it is a black expanse of iron sand. The waves on Glagah Beach are quite large. Because of that, in this coastal area, a long pier was built with tetrapod on the left and right. The tetrapod functions as a breakwater. To enter the tourist area of Glagah Beach, tourists only need to spend Rp 4,000.
