It is the ideal spot sea destination in term of distance from Jakarta that people would not mind to spend their weekend. The Island got range of infrastructure and lots can be done. Would be more interesting if government could upgrade the facility, cleanliness etc ... It would be favorite people destination..

I planned to visit several islands and finally just ended... More

I went here to dive primarily. It's a nice place to get out of Jakarta and be at sea. The islands themselves have a range of infrastructure so you can choose what to do. Diving wise there is a lot of bleaching and dead corals. Visibility about 15m
