Panorama view with black sand sea is really beautiful. Please bring face mask to be here because it have a lot of dust during the way but don't worry it is worthwhile to visit. Black sand sea with Batok mt. background and many jeep on black sand sea really good.

It is just like a desert of black sand. But it is a great background for photography if you know how to capture it well. Most tours will stop here after the visiting mount Bromo.

Sand sea is very beautiful and quite an experience. Personally, i thought it was more amazing during rainy season because all the savannah turn green (almost like new zealand). You can do: 1. Sand boarding ( by using your jeep to pull you on a board ) 2. Dirtbike motorcycling AOMIndonesia Tour and Adventure Check us on Instagram : aomindonesia

The sea of sand is below the Bromo crater and it's basically the Bromo Caldera itself where the volcano crater is located. When looked from above the Bromo crater or the sunrise point, it truly resembles a sea of sand or a lake, especially when there's a mist above it in the morning hours. In order to get to the...

You can walk down to the sea of sand and across to Bromo from behind Bromo Permai 1 hotel. It will take you 1 hour walking to reach Mount Bromo. Very beautiful landscape.

Best view is on top of Mount Bromo. You get to see the undulating Sea of Sand, frozen in its state until the next sand storm strikes. I have to say this compensates the Bromo crater which is rather boring... nothing but smoke coming out from the bottom. Other than that, to walk across the caldera base from the jeep... More

The sea of sand is better than i expected it to be, but can only view this from the top of Mt bromo. Pony ride available at 100k for 2 ways. Very fun ride, but felt a little sorry for the tiny horses that need to carry the not so tiny us. However, have to say the horses are pretty... More
