The eastern end of Java doesn't have the huge ancient monuments of Central Java, but there is a lot to see in East Java. One of East Java's major attractions is the active volcano Mount Bromo, just a couple hours' drive from Surabaya. The island of Madura is just a 30 minute ferry ride from East Java's capital of Surabaya. Madura boasts several white sandy beaches that are excellent for swimming. If the beach isn't your scene, head south to the hill town of Malang. Just 90 kilometers south of Surabaya, Malang is a cool and comfortable escape. There are many ancient Hindu temples in the area, dating back to the thirteenth century.
