Incredible to experience such amazing clear waters off the coast of Jakarta. I have been to a couple islands here and must say it's a perfect getaway for a weekend as long as the weather is good.

Lots of choice is offered on different Islands. Easy to book, together with range of prices. Crossing back to mainland is very choppy.

If you want a relaxing day and don't mind riding boats to get to the island this is a nice retreat from Jakarta. You can see Komoda Dragons on this island but be careful. Their bite is deadly and they won't mind taking a bite out of you so watch your distance. But there is scuba diving which is ok... More

Travelled to Bidadari island for a day tour. Trip includes a boat ride to and from Ancol marina, lunch, welcome drink, banana boat, cycle rental and boat trip to three near by islands. 8 hours is a long time to spend on an island which takes only about an hour to explore completely. Good for romantic getaways, would advise staying... More

I'm happy to visit this island but i think the people's there must concern about clean the beach! The island look welcoming but since arrive many plastic trash. So sad to write this.

Your trip starts from a smelly and dirty waters of the port of Jakarta. You have to go a couple of hours on a boat to see the difference between clean and dirty water. There are plenty of islands with two inhabitants (security guy and fisherman). If you look for real adventure go to the one with no electricity. The... More

For those visiting Jakarta and wanting to have small island feel and adventure, Thousand Islands is just a couple hours away from North Jakarta. You can do many water activities and, most importantly, do some relaxations. Some private islands are for rent and basic accommodation are available in some larger islands. A range of transportaion from jet foil to just... More
