Just 1.5 hours boat trip from Jakarta and you are in clean water and fresh air. Nothing to do but relax and enjoy the water. My favourite island is Pulau Macan but there are others that offer seclusion and fun. If you live in Jakarta it is a must. If you are visiting - try to fit it in. On... More

Not quite far from the center, convenient but filled with tourists and sadly, trashes. Also got some attractions nearby, with cheap accommodation. Well, as someone said, the further you go, the cleaner the beach get.

By no means the nicest islands in Indonesia, but still a great escape from the city. The further you can get from the mainland, the nicer and cleaner they get.

For domestic budget tourist, I suggest to go to Pari Island if you want to enjoy low tide, calm and cleaner beach. But only 1 beach; virgin beach (Pantai Perawan), other than that was filled with drifted garbage. Accommodation cost you around 600k IDR for one house (2 bedrooms, air conditioned), and every meal need to be booked on advance... More

It's the best place to getaway from Jakarta's traffic jam. Well, everyone thinks the same! The result? Thousand Islands is now full of visitors, full of trash! Hopefully the tourists can be more responsible for its cleanliness.

We lived in Jakarta for 4 years and in all that time we tried various times to book a few days away only to find we needed to have at least 14 people in our party. They would not take our booking for 2. Seems it's ok at weekends because many people go so it's worth their while ( we... More

Hello fellow travellers, Good to share my thoughts again, was in Ayer Island during December 28 to 29 2014, really great time. Stayed in fak fak, floating cottages. Good location and view. Took speed boat from anchol, 20 to 30 minutes travelling time to reach. We took a day package for 1.3 million Indonesia rupiah. That is roughly about 220... More
