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.

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.

you should have a private boat to take you to the remote ones (30 km plus) because of the vicinity to the harbour of Jakarta the beaches of the near by islands and the waters around are pretty much polluted.

Thousand Islands at the Jakarta Bay has many spots for scuba diving. The most economical way is to go to the Pramuka island for a weekend stay and dive around the island. There are several dive operator on the island which can provide dive guides, airfill and equipment rental. Costs around Rp250,000 per dive.

Just back from the short weekend trip to one of the thousand island area. This area very potentially become one of the world famous place to visit. There are still many rooms of improvement, i.e. boat transfer, island management, room management etc. Really hope that this area will be prefessionally managed by Jakarta
