Ulo is one of the tourist sites which lies on the Indonesian ocean.
There is beautiful scenery at this site and it is the perfect place to
enjoy the sea. It is called "Watu Ulo" by the natives because they
believe that in the past there was a snake who was becoming a spirit.
After becoming a spirit, it became a stone resembling a snake, sticking
into the sea with its body lying on the land. During the Japanese
occupation, the Japanese soldiers made fortresses which were used for
fortifying against the attacking enemies and now some of the fortresses
have become tourist sites. Beside the Japanese fortress, there is also
a bat cave inhabited by thousands of bats. The visitors can cross the
sandy shore to get to the cave. The lonely cave is often used for
meditation by visitors. However tourists should remember that the cave
is 100m in depth. To get there, the visitors can use public
transportation or hire a rental car. The journey takes approximately 30
minutes from the downtown of Jember.
