The seaweed farmers in the tourist beach that is Geger cannot afford the luxury of living on the beach. Instead, they live in the village in the hills of Sawangan and just visit their farms daily, which is about 20 minutes away. Every now and then, these farmers are asked to move their farms further into deeper waters to accommodate the need of tourists for a "pristine" beach. Luckily, they too are now considered a "culture" fixture in Geger. Their industry is safe, for now.
