Go to Depapre harbor, and rent a boat. It is a bit expensive (450,000 for drop-off and pick up), and also the pondoks on the beach have to be... More

You want to see Indonesians walking all over coral reef and breaking bits off to take home? Don't go. The next bay around to the north is way nicer.

I found that this beach is the best place I visited during my Jayapura trip. To reach here, you need to drive about 2 hours heading to west of Jayapura or Tablanusu district. The road was not that good, small road and a bit bumpy. Once you get to Tablanusu dock, hire a boat to Harlem Beach. About 15mins of... More
