5 Perfect Beaches In The Jakarta Area
This beach stretches across the north coast of Jakarta and has both the natural charm of a coastline and the continuous development of an urban area. The charming beach is lined with restaurants, shopping malls and various amusement parks for the city dwellers. That means a full day of fun in Ancol can include a fantastic ride in Dunia Fantasi, lazing with your feet in the sand the day, shopping for locally made crafts at the art market, enjoying a delicious meal on the pier and enjoying the sunset view, and more.

Anyer Beach has been the number one choice for a quick beach vacation for decades, especially on weekends. The coastal region has been transformed into a well-developed beach town with luxury resorts, hotels and leisure activities. Reachable in less than a three-hour drive or bus, Anyer is close enough for a comfortable getaway, but enough distance to escape the busy metropolis for a while. Groups, couples, and families can enjoy a wide variety of activities such as diving, snorkeling, water sports, getting a temporary tattoo, or a massage on the beach.

In the constellation of 110 islands in Jakarta's Thousand Islands, Bidadari or Angel Island is one of the easiest to reach from Jakarta. Just 30 minutes away by speedboat, tourists can find themselves on an exotic little island with powder-white sandy beaches and clear, transparent water. Bidadari Island is a perfect destination for a short day trip or a long weekend in one of its waterfront vacation homes. Beyond the idyllic beaches that surround the island, Bidadari Island also offers a fun exploration on land, where tourists can cycle around the island or find colonial-era war ruins.

Pari (Stingray) Island in Jakarta's Thousand Islands is known for its vibrant and well-preserved marine life - coral reefs, fish, seaweed and much more. Despite its short distance from Jakarta's coastline (about an hour's boat ride away), Pari Island is home to some of the quietest and most pristine beaches, including the prized Virgin Sands Beach, which delivers exactly what the name suggests. This island can be visited on a day trip, but if you choose to stay the night don't miss the exquisite sunrise from Sun Hill.

Tanjung Reading Beach
This beach is named after a traditional device for grinding grains of rice (reading), which represents the shape of the indented coastline. The 15 km long, pristine white sand coast is now preparing for a major renovation led by the government as this beach has been named one of Indonesia's "New Bali". Between pristine shades of blue, breathtaking serene lagoons, and tall shaded coconut trees, tourists can also immerse themselves in the local culture by interacting with the fishing community and watching traditional performances.
