However, up to now, the management and development of Papuma is not very optimal. If only this area were developed with optimally, it will surely bring in more revenue either for local or Perhutani(government) as the owner.

The government can at least take advantage of Papuma by making it as a means to introduce the communities’ crafts and Jember typical foods, and surely from the entry fee and lodging.

When in fact, there are numbers of advantages that Papuma has over other beaches, like its small wave that allows the kids or visitors to bath safely on the shore.

Not to mention the quite extensive location that can be used as a place to relax with family. Plus the scene of roaming forest monkeys, makes the beach more exotic.

And there’s still more. On the other side of this region, there is beach with the stretch of pebbles. On the top of the pebble right on the top of the hill, stood a hut used by visitors to enjoy the expanse of the vast southern ocean.

Still, many visitors expressed over their curiousity why this beautiful beach had not been developed optimally.
