Visiting Pari Island, is taking about 2 hours from Ancol via a speedboat. You can find a beautiful perawan beach, a little mangrove sites, a LIPI center and a small county of locals. I love the local snack, seaweed-based food, which is manisan and dodol. What the good things is you can find some good spot in Pari Island. What... More

Pari island: 2 hours journey in tradition boat slow moving journey. Journey was not good at all. Pari island has home stay everywhere. We changed home once due to AC not working properly. If you expect hotel type comfort then strongly not recommended pari island. Server only Indonesian food and fruits. Snorkeling is the only best part in island.

There are three main beaches in Pari Island. However, one of them only for sea creatures preservation. My favorite beach is Virgin Beach since it's the cleanest one among all. However, if you want to go here, it's better to go during the day to avoid sunset time because it will be very crowded during sunset. If you want to... More

If you're too busy at work and dont have much time to do holiday stuffs, you might consider to have a trip to Pari Island in the weekend. It probably more crowded, but the sunset is worth it. Good enough to refresh your weekend. Tip: More persons, low prices.

The sunset view was totally amazing. Dont like to much about the snorkeling. Coz, the water was not too clean. No fish after all. Just a bunch of seaweed. But really love the fresh air. And they having white sand too. After all, the beach view was awesome.

Only 2 hours from Jakarta and you're in a totally different world. Locals are friendly and often want to take pictures with you. The beaches are very nice but there isn't a lot to do. So for a quick get away from the busy jakarta it is perfect. But for the backpacker it isn't
