Avoid the hustle and bustle of Jakarta and cruise out to this beautiful location. Avoid the chaotic city and relax on an island and enjoy a fresh beer

Had a lovely lunch on the Island, if we knew more before hand we would have spent at least one night there. Beautiful little bungalows to stay in, just a very peaceful and... More
