Thousand islands is a string of 105 tiny islands in the Java sea, north of Jakarta. Depending on which island you are visiting it will take you 30 min to 2 hours in a speed boat. The island I visited is called Sepa. It has a resort near the seashore, remaining part is thickly wooded.

Loved it - not too crowded and friendly people, a great place to relax but like everything in Indonesia it can change on a daily basis

It has thousands of small to big islands. Blue clear water and life of reefs good for snorkeling, diving or even just for a stay with a family, friends and business meeting.

A beautiful area, as soon as you get further from Marina Ancol. When close to Jakarta, there is too much junk in the water. On the further islands, some gradation beaches can be found. Only 2 or 3 of the islands have resorts on them.

Went to Harapan Island with my bf in mid June 2015, we booked a private 2D 1N trip for 2 from a local tour guide, turned out it wasn't so private. On their ad, they said we will get a private island hopping trip to 5 different spots, a trip to the turtle breeding site, photo underwater facility, a private... More

This place offer a quick getaway from the busy and crowded Jakarta. Only take approximately one hour from Ancol using fast boat. Blue ocean, clean air, this place also offer diving and snorkeling experience, which I think is quite fine, although not quite on same level as the ever famous Bali, Raja Ampat or other remote area. It is really... More

I have been to thoisand island, Tidung Island for exactly and i fell in love with it. Nice although it was so damn hot. If you wanna go there cheaper,go from Muara Angke. But you must be there at least at 8am. It takes 2hours from Jakarta to Tidung. But it pays off.

All of the thousand islands have a bad correlation between price and value. That is in general you have to pay a lot, but the standard of accommodation is average at best and the food quality often is poor. On the plus side it's close from Jakarta and after 90 minutes from the Marina in Ancol/Jakarta you will arrive at... More
