My Sole purpose to visit "Pulau Pelangi" is to dive. It is pre arranged in Jakarta. The island itself is one of the furthest, so it takes about 2 hours to visit. If the weather is not good the speedboat to visit the island is extremely bumpy like a roller coaster ride. Otherwise it is a smooth ride. The only... More

I have visited most of the Thousands Islands. The top ones: Tiger Island, Pantara Stay no more than 2 days not much to do if you are looking for activities, just relax, massage by the beach, snorkelling , kayak Love the water colors, clear skies, FRESH & CLEAN AIR. The scenario is quite perfect. Traveling time 1;45 by speedboat.

Well there is a wealth of choice of little islands usually with just one hotel/bungalow setup on each. Take Some time to choose a nice setup. Diving is ok as well as dolphins etc

Wonderful to get away, lovely snorkeling, very relaxing once you get there! We have explored two of the islands in weekend all-in packages to escape from the Jakarta bustle. We will be exploring others.

We bought a 2 days 1 night trip to Tidung, booked through travel agency found on Internet. Speedboat to Tidung is 1 hr from Ancol, good distance from Jakarta since sea can get rough. Price is 1/2 if you compare to resorts on other islands. We had a guide all the time, very nice homestay, bycycles, snorkling, boat trip, 3... More

I've been there last year for short escape. With low budget, we can get a lot of activities like snorkelling, bicycling, and fresh seafood for dinner, If you don't have a long time for holiday, you can choose Pari Island for short escape.

I visited Pulau Tidung, Pulau Pramukan and Pulau Semak Daun and I wish I never left those islands! All of the above are stunning and photogenic. Tidung and Pramukan are the more lively ones, though. With cute, colorful little villages and superfriendly locals! Plenty of fresh coconuts to drink. The water is mostly very shallow and very clear, which gives... More
