The name Base G was actually a code word created by the Allied Forces for the city of Jayapura. The allies under the command of 5-star General Douglas Mcarthur with his famous motto “I shall return” carried out a “leapfrog” attack strategy. The attack started from Hawaii towards the west and each place was coded.

Jayapura City was the 7th stopover codenamed Basis G or Base G. After the allied forces left Jayapura city the name was later immortalized on a beautiful beach on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The name remains eternal to this day, Base Beach. G began with the Japanese Army’s attack on December 7, 1941 on the United States Naval base Pearl Harbour in Oahu – Hawaii which brought the United States into World War II.

The clear blue water, white sand, and calm waves make this beach a little paradise for tourists. The beach also has an interesting history as a strategic spot during World War II. Shady green trees flourish on the beachfront, providing shade and relaxation.
