Muncar Fishing Village

by Author: Dr. Muhammad Yamin Ismail

Four weeks ago I was in Muncar, Banyuwangi, East Java.

Muncar is a fishing village about one hour’s drive from Banyuwangi. The villagers were descendants of Madura. The views of fisherman activities in this village can be seen here with various ornamental and decorated traditional and modern fishing ship. Their fishing boats were beautifully decorated.

More than 90 percent of Muncar population are muslims. They were very friendly and hospitable, especially when I said my name is Haji Yamin from Malaysia, so its a delightful place for street photography. Besides being a fisherman, they also sell foods infront of their house or in the pavements.
