I'd been snorkeling in Nusa Lembongan and Pulau Penyu already and Thousand Island (Pramuka Island) is a way much better for than the Penyu Island. The coral, sand and water is amazing pure. Only the island itself very bad. The sewage from the houses are directly to the small river on the beach. I talk with the officer from Ministry of Forest that local government will build a street surrounding the island for jogging and bike track which is will remove the white sand as i could see they start to embank some spots with trash to build a new street.

Avoid going at the beginning of the wet season after Jakarta's first 'flush' after the dry season. We stayed at an island some way out of Jakarta, Tiger Island. Sea was full of rubbish.

We hired a boat from Ancol, and travelled to Pulau Sepa and Pulau Putri. We did enjoy Pulau Sepa the most - great beach and the kids enjoyed snorkeling for the whole day. Its a hidden gem - right outside the city

Used to be pristine and exotic, but now polluted and overcrowded. Especially on the more popular islands. Essentially, the further away the island from Jakarta and the tourist crowd, the more probable that it is cleaner.
