I went there twice. My first trip was great. I stayed in Putri Island which the service is good and the condition is also good. We got a proper room and can enjoy the view. I departed from the Ancol Harbor which is nice and using speed boat. My 2nd trip was terrible. departed from Harbor close to Muara Karang... More

We've been to Sepa island. Bounty beaches are there, but the included meals and accommodation are definitely not worth the price (we paid 1.500.000 Rp. per person). If you know locals - definitely go there. Prices for locals are as low as 350.000 per person, which makes it a nice weekend getaway

Pulau Bintang is a small island in the thousand islands jakarta, 90 minutes by speedboat from Jakarta. very isolated, quite and alone. nice and unspoiled beaches. We recommend that you bring your own food if staying here because here there are only 4 bungalows and the guard of the island alone. The bungalow available stove and gas for cooking

Pulau Seribu offers hardened city residents a welcome escape from all the hustle and bustle. Easily reached by boat from Ancol, it makes a great destination for a weekend getaway. Hotels abound, good food is aplenty and you can get all sorts of water sports - including scuba diving. A fun option. Highly recommended.

Food are cheap there but the availability of proper lodges is limited. We booked a whole homestay when we travelled there. Was nice, clean and air-conditioned, located right on the beach front. But I forgot the name of the place. The underwater biodiversity isn't that abundant, though. Only dead coral.

Prepare early in the morning. Come to the historical Kelor Island and surrounding islands. Enjoy the view and historical story.

if you have a change visit Jakarta.... You should come to thousand islands. It takes around 2 hours form Ancol Marina using speed boat and you can see really nice underwater view. You don't have to spend extra money for airline tickets

Living in Jakarta for almost all my life I understand the need for escape. Thousand Islands is the answer for a short getaway. Unbelievable difference in scenery within an hour or 2 from high skyscrapers to clear blue sea and clean beaches. Protection of turtles and coral has become a fantastic way to increase eco tourism. Diving, snorkelling and other... More

you can visit many islands there for example pulau untung jawa, pulau pramuka, pulau tidung, pulau pari, atau pulau bira. from all islands mentioned, the most memorable is the Pulau Bira. it's like a forgotten island. many resorts are no longer used there. Whereas, you can see a beautiful sunset there, as great as in Bali.
