You can take the ferry early in the morning or travel in style on your own chartered speedboat. Nothing much to do unless you're staying here on the pretty cottages on The pool here was overflowing with chlorine and the buffet included in the entry charge was kind of sad. Cannot comment on the water-sports as the weather was too... More

Pari Island is one of the Islands in Thousand Island, its so quiet and peaceful. The people around that area are so kind. The water of the beach was so clean with lot of star fish. I love the environment so much. The only negative thing was the transportation. The boat was not comfortable and the engine was too loud.

Close to the city (well, if you can get to the right jetty, watch-out) the island are actually very nice, at least the ones a further away (1h boat ride or more) Went to Pari island. Accommodation is fairly basic (home stay) but hopefully improving soon. Just 1 night possible in that context, but the 2 days trip was great.... More

Nice beaches, depends on which island you visit. Only 30- 120 minutes from Jakarta, makes this destination a must go if you're in Jakarta. Don't expect bali or hawaii type of beaches, but it's worth going. Choose which island you want to visit ahead of time

if you like to find clear water and white sand, go a liitle further to the north, its called "Sepa Island" , its about 1,5-2 hours boat ride from Ancol. Be prepare, when the tide is high, many of people get seasick.

If you like history, you can visit these three islands. You don't need to stay there, you can do a day trip. If you want to spend the night there, you can stay on Cipir or Onrust Island. There are a few rooms that you can rent or you can camp there as well. I find Kelor island a beautiful... More

Thousand Island (pulau seribu) it's a good place to go if you don't really feel traveling by plane to see blue sea. Some Island are good. Worth to try for those who never been.

When I worked in Jakarta, I came here for International Coastal Clean Up Day, where I volunteered to collect underwater trash while snorkeling/diving. For those who come to Indonesia for a holiday, don't come here as a main destination! There is still a LOT of more beautiful beaches in Indonesia. Thousand Islands is beautiful, no doubt. But its proximity to... More
