Seasky run by Jon, he was the only person on the island who replied my emails promptly when most of my enquires to other travel agencies went unanswered.
Jon is very helpful with information regarding Karimun Jawa. He can arrange most things you need. Snorkeling trips, island hopping or scuba. Recommends good places to eat. Only ask and he will see to it.
He is located not to far from the pier. High recommended.

Tanjung Gelam Beach

Reviewed By Randi M - Perth, Australia

We were here for sunset after snorkeling. They had some traditional food stalls alongside the beach selling deep fried food, noodles and beer mostly. It was too packed in the afternoon with lots of young people taking photos everywhere and invading most of the spots. They even caused a long queue for others who wanted to take some photos. The beach is actually beautiful with white sand and clear water. Sad truth is that there are much rubbish scattered resulted from the food stalls.

Menjangan Kecil Island

Reviewed By leonard_chia - Singapore, Singapore

A good place to snorkel around as the corals are not bleached and alive. You can see some purplish blue corals which i have not seen anywhere else in Asia. Water visibility is decent but not as good as island further away from Karimun Jawa Mainland. We stayed at Kura Kura resort and the snorkeling and corals there were nicer and water alot clearer, however, that is a private island so if stay there is your budget allows.

Karimun Jawa Love Hill

Reviewed By Mohammad A

Offers an absolutely stunning view of the island and the Sea. Well worth the entry ticket of 10,000 rupiah, which is usable on multiple entries and gets you a discount of the same value at the souvenir store.
Love hill also has the advantage of being well-located, with it taking only 10 minutes to get there from the village. Also has a nice coffee shop at the top.
Must see in Karimun Jawa!

We stayed at The Happinezz for four amazing days. We had bought boat tickets in advance through their boat ticket service, which was completely stress free and efficient. They also arranged transport to and from Jepara for us, again stress free and efficient. We also did their island hopping and snorkelling day, which was fantastic. It was an amazing four days amongst lovely people who could not help us enough.

Go there at night and enjoy barbecued fish and sea food. It comes in all shapes, sizes and colours. We tried the parrot fish, the tuna and the kakap merah. Delicious. Best place to eat on the entire island!

Geleang Island

Reviewed By Noni_Metta - Borobudur, Indonesia

If you visiting Karimun Jawa, you will join the sea tour for IDR 150,000-175,000/person/day. Please request to the guide to have lunch in Geleang Island.
The water was very clean like a crystal. Good place for sun bathing! Serene and lot of positive energy. After Geleang Island, usually they will take you to the Gosong Island to take selfies. Hohohohoho.... And of course hunting Nemo, Sea Turtle, and school fish!

Batu Topeng Beach

Reviewed By edwardorusfid - Jakarta, Indonesia

its surprising me that this beach not listed yet. i drive around karimun jawa by motorbike and found this is one of best spot at there. but if you around several island in karimun jawa archipilago, theres so many beautiful place.
this beach locate in the same way (if you go here using land transport. because mostly people come there using boat) if you go to Tanjung Gelam Beach, one of famous spot at karimun jawa Mainland. Tanjung Gelam Beach is more famous because its one of best spot for sunset. but its too crowd for visitor who want to see sunset. so but i personally more prefer Batu Topeng.
i upload several picture but believe methe real is more better.
and one more. if you go there in the right season, at night, you will see amazing view :)
just come and visit
