Jakarta to Pelabuhan Ratu

We are going to Jakarta this December. We would like to visit a beach and stay there for 2 nights. We found out a Pondok Kencana at Pelabuhan Ratu. We plan to rent a car from Jakarta to Pelabuhan Ratu? How much will it cost? How long will be the journey? Is it safe to depart from Jakarta to Pelabuhan Ratu at night as our flight will arrive Jakarta at night?

You can ask Pondok Kencana to arrange your transportation.

I would surely not recommand to travel in Indonesia at night due to the bad conditions of the road, of course during the raining season it can be worst.

It is specially not recommanded when you go from Jakarta to PR as the last 20/30 kilometers are narrow road in the mountains . Much better to stay at the aiport hotel and leave at 5.00 AM.

To go during day time without heavy traffic, you need about 4 hours to get there from south Jakarta but from the aiport to south Jakarta, it can be 1 hour at least.

I agree with Varan- I would stay overnight in Jakarta or Bogor and leave early the next morning.

And suggest you rent a car and driver- the Indonesians know the roads so much better than the traveller.
