It's only an hour away by boat from Jakarta. You can do snorkel and diving, though the water is pretty muddy and water isn't very clear. Still it's good if you want to get some sea without going too far from the capital.

I hop on a boat for only 30 minutes cruise to get to the island harbour. It’s a good experience to escape from Jakarta city.

Went here to spend quite new year, also need the sea air and relax. I normally stay on the resort island, which charge per person/ night, this time I went to an habitat island. Pramuka island. I book the hotel from booking.com and book the boat transport on seperate. The hotel was per room/night, and the boat was 1250 horse power motor, with aircon inside the cabin. It takes 1 hour from Ancol, and the boat leave at 8 am. When you get there the room will not be ready because the guest will only check out at 1 pm as the boat returning to Ancol leaving at 3 pm. 😂 The hotel got no restaurant, but you can order simple food. I found this descent restaurant that serve descent food, with some tables and view. The restaurant name “kampoeng koneng” i think this is the only restaurant that serve nice hot clean food. Rent a boat for a day trip to island hop cost us Rp. 500k ( as we are only 2 person ) the floating restaurant got a nice cold beer, and the island around is beautiful. It’s a must do when you visit here, to rent a traditional wooden boat and do island hop. Don’t forget to bring your own bag to keep your own rubbish. Don’t leave anything behind :)

Water is not clean, smelly, even though we cruise for 60 minutes away from the city. It's sad that people is unaware about environment. Plastics are anywhere on the ocean.

For sure not under the top 3 places at thousand Islands, but nevertheless a nice place to stay for a while. There´s an amazing beach and you can go diving here.

To get to this island need to go to Ancol beach park, they will charge money 5 USD just to enter the beach park. And then you pay for about 75 USD for round trip cruise from marina to the island. They said full day but actually we will spend only 4 hours in the Island.

The thousand islands are a number of islands that are 1-2 hours away from jakarta city.
We went to Putri island as part of the thousand islands tour.
WE arrived at Ancol harbour at 6.30am and took the boat to Putri which is the furthest island.
It took 3 hours on boat but it was worth it,
The island was so clean, the water is so blue and the sand very soft.
My daughter loved swimming,
We went to the pool and swam in the beach,
Included was lunch, an aquarium tour which was not the best and underwater boat ride.
Very different to Jakarta and was nice to see

We had a good weekend getaway here. Everything is cheap and not as polluted as Jakarta. The boat ride took 3 hours but it is worth it
