my title says it all, been there couple times and by each visit more and more garbage on the sea, even the local passengers on the boat we were in threw plastic bottles into the sea insensitively. I stayed in Harapan island , and really sad to see too many people living on the island making huge stacks of garbage.... More

The beaches are very nice, but once you get into the water my opinion changed. There were so much garbage that every so often the boat had to stop to clean the garbage from the propeller. I was especially disappointed by the habit of local fishermen to throw garbage to the sea and anchored the boat wherever they like, even... More

We took a trip to Sepa for a day trip which was an absolutely beautiful island. Really small island, not crowded, and amazing beaches and water. I didn't have any regrets picking this island. Now some really good tips going here... 1. Boats! We were told it would be a speed boat. When we arrived they wanted to put us... More

I have now stayed at 3 of the island resorts. So far this is the best. Good beach bungalows, excellent staff, food is fine, nice clean beaches, lovely pool, slightly pricey but you get what you pay for.a truly lovely island escape from the very busy Jakarta. Highly recommended.

The Thousand Island archipel is located north of the Indonesian capital Jakarta. It is a popular weekend hide-out for the locals. It is just about a 2 hour speed boat trip. We choose to go to Pular Pelangi (Rainbow Island) which is basically a resort. If you have the chance to go off-season and during a week day it is... More

I went with my friends for a short weekend getaway. We booked a travel organizer for 500.000 per person for a group of 5 person. It began with a boat trip from muara angke pier, beware, seasickness is common on this boat, better pick the open area at the back of the boat. The boat trio took about 3 hours,... More

We visited pulau bidadari for a day tour. The water was not clean. However, we was enjoying the cycling around the island. My kids was happy with playing the sand. They caught few small crabs and fish.

You can take a speed boat or ferry in the morning at the marine pier ancol to pulau seribu, just few hours you can arrive your destination and the sea is very pure, fantastic for snorkeling.
