Pulau Untung Jawa

Pulau Untung Jawa is one of bunch Pulau Seribu. You may reach the island from Marina Pier or from Tanjung Jawa (near Soekarno Hatta Airport). I suggest you to reach from tanjung jawa, because it's only take about 30 minutes to the island with a sailboat. From Marina Pier, you could spend 3-4 hours (even with a boat) depending to weather. To use sailboad, you need to pay about IDR 5,000 - 15,000 (about US$ 1). In this island, you may stay on homestay. I want you to keep in mind, this is not a hotel standard. It cost IDR 100,000 (US$8.33)/night for ingenuous - IDR 450.000 (US$37.5)/night with air conditioning facilities. Or, you could try a camping for free ones.

In this island, I and my familly stay for a couple days. This is small island with +/- 100 people. We could enjoy sea and beach panorama here by swimming, diving, circling, night fishing, or rent a sailboat.

If you rent a bicycle, then you could island-circling for 30 minutes only. Rent a bicycle cost IDR 5.000 (US$ 0,4) for one hour.

You could rent a sailboat from local citizen for travelling to near islands such as Pulau Rambut, Pulau Cipir/Khayangan, Pulau Bidadari, Pulau Onrus, and Pulau Kelor.

Pulau Cipir (also called as Pulau Khayangan)
In this island, we could see beautifull long beach. There no homestay and electrical, usually brave journer would stay here by camping and fishing for a view day. Very awesome and challengging!

Pulau Onrus
An island with lot of fortress. In this island we could see graves of the first founder, dutch soldier, and first family of the soldier. Indonesia used this island for hajj quarantine until 1970's. Hajj quarantine here before and after they went to Makkah from Jakarta. There was a hajj hospital here.

Pulau Bidadari
This is a well developed tourism place. There is a three star hotel with natural beach side. On this island, we could see a fortress that build by Dutch on +/- 1500 A.D.

Pulau Kelor
There is only one fortress here, nothing resident nor anchorage. I couldn't go there because of beachcomber. But, it is awesome to see this island from sailboat.

Well, for 3 day, you might be sent about IDR 4,000,000 (US$333.3)- IDR 6,000,000 (US$500) for 5 people. But, that's depend on your activities:)
