Suitable place for relax near Jakarta. My advice, choose Pantara island or Macan Island. Both of this island is the fartest island from Jakarta. All in tour package around USD 200 for 2days 1night, include cruise to the island, all meals, accomodation, 2 water sport and sunset view. Here is really nice place for relax, superB view, clean water and... More

Went and stay in Pulau Harapan (Island of Hope) with my collagues, the island itself was not interesting at all. It was overcrowded with citizen's house and lodge. The main reason to get there was for it's surrounding islands. It has great snorkeling spots, starting with the shallow sandy shore, to the 10 meters deep. The coral was beautiful. The... More

Easy to go there from Jakarta. Transport and accommodation cost is reasonable. Sea water not so clear, unfortunately.

In case you want to get rid of Jakarta traffic buzz this should be your first choice. You will be greeted by lovely weather, beautiful beaches and exotic seafood. My suggestion is to opt for an island which is far from Jakarta port as it will be having less tourists and more clean. You can travel by sharing Speed boat... More
