We have experience staying 2 days and 1 night in Pari Island. We paid 30 USD for the tour package. The cost is including ship, lodge, 3 meals, bike rent, entry pass to white sands beach. It is really amazing

These are the closest tropical islands to Jakarta, unfortunately the underwater landscape has been ruined by indiscriminate dynamite fishing.

We visited Pulau Pelangi as a work weekend trip from Jakarta. Read somewhere that if you want clean waters, you are advised to travel at least 90 minutes out of Jakarta. We booked with the resort directly which was an easy process. We met the resort's friendly English speaking guide at Ancol early in the morning who made sure we... More

If you want to having time at beaches, chilling, sun bathing, or even Snorkeling, you should try this one. You can choose one of the Islands to go and having a great time there. The most important thing is you have to find the best "guide" from the local citizen to company you. They can show you the great spot... More
