Easy to go there from Jakarta. Transport and accommodation cost is reasonable. Sea water not so clear, unfortunately.

In case you want to get rid of Jakarta traffic buzz this should be your first choice. You will be greeted by lovely weather, beautiful beaches and exotic seafood. My suggestion is to opt for an island which is far from Jakarta port as it will be having less tourists and more clean. You can travel by sharing Speed boat... More

I really like 1000 Island because its near by Jakarta 4-5 hours by boat. afterwards, if you are in group then it hardly cost you Rp. 300,000 per person. As weekends you can goi and come back Jakarta fast. Really nice place for escaping from town view to Ocean view & White Sanda ...really Love it.

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

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
