If you love to escape the typical touristic places and try to look for a quiet destination (for now), then the Karimunjawa islands are perfect. The best thing about the Karimnujawa islands is that they are still not very known among travelers. For instance, Lonely Planet just recently started to mention them at all.

SNORKELING AND ISLANDS HOPPING FULL DAY TRIP WITH SUNSET IN KARIMUNJAWA ISLANDS

Karimunjawa, Jepara Regency, Central Java, Indonesia

Our hosts from Ayu hotel organized an awesome snorkeling trip for us. This trip was my absolute highlight on Karimunjawa.
The snorkeling tour started at 9.00 AM and we came home after sunset, around 6.30 PM. We were on the boat with another couple, so we had plenty of room and paid 220.000 Rp. The trip was amazing. Island hopping around Karimunjawa islands is a truly breathtaking experience.

Incredible place. Because we left early in the morning, we were alone there. On the left side of the beach there is a very little bay and this is where we spent the whole day. We were completely alone, surrounded by palms and rocks. We enjoyed this place so much that we even came back the next day.

Warm water and beautiful turquoise water with incredible surroundings will make you come again. As we came in the morning, the water was very beautiful. However, in the afternoon, around 3 PM, more and more locals and tourists from Java come to the beach.

I choose this place as it was mentioned in Trip Advisor with the highest ranking. Also travelfish.org mentioned this place as a lovely hotel. And with a happy smile I can say that the ranking is definitely justified. Amazing hosts Eryl and Marco made our stay in Karimunjawa even more enjoyable. They were very attentive and caring. They have several cute huts which are very specious and nicely designed. I really loved the bathroom which had no roof, so showering and looking at the palms kept me there for a long time. The tasty breakfast every morning boosted our energy even more. Every morning we had a different breakfast (different types of pancakes, omelettes, fruits etc. Further, people who worked there are very kind, lovely and customer oriented. Marco and Eryl also organized for us an unforgettable snorkeling tour for us and you can also rent a scooter at the property (70.000 Rp). All in all, I highly recommend this place and I would stay there again.
