10 Best Beaches in Indonesia

INDONESIA with 17,504 islands holds the record for the state with the longest coastline in the world version of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Not fair that I should only choose the 10 best beaches in Indonesia, as many other nice beaches that I had never visited, such as in Maluku and Papua.

I also do not include the island of Bali and the island of Belitung to this list, because I consider as 'normal'. Understandably, I am not a fan of the commercial. My tastes have deserted beach, without waves and can diberenangi casually.

The following list is based on the distance from Jakarta, not in order of level of beauty.

Gangga Island, North Sulawesi
Gangga Island is located at the northern tip of Sulawesi island. Go to the Sangihe Islands. Most tourists to North Sulawesi, go to Bunaken Island. But not far from the island there are far more beautiful Ganges. Fine white sand, clear water, and quiet. Gangga island covering an area of 5 hectares is actually a resort run by the Italians. Can be reached by car for 1 hour from the city of Manado and 30 minutes by speed boat from the village of Likupan. Diberenangi delicious sea early in the afternoon-evening and night because not choppy. The view at sunset is spectacular. The whole sky was orange-red is reflected in the ocean water becomes golden.

Apart from woven and horses, nature is very beautiful Sumba. The beach was nice, clean and quiet. But my favorite beach is located in the District Ratenggaro Kodi, about an hour drive from the city of Waikabubak. White sandy beaches and blue sea is surrounded by low stone cliffs and stone megalithic remains grave. Uniquely, the beach is right in the mouth of the river a watery blue and bare sand.

Cubadak Island, West Sumatra
Cubadak island located in the province of West Sumatra. From the city of Padang, is 2.5 hours drive to the Village Corocok, then 10 minutes by speed boat. The island is also an area of ​​7 acres of land from a resort which again managed an Italian named Cubadak Paradiso Village, which means "village in heaven". Behind lay the forest and cliffs, being in front of white sandy beach surrounded by mountains. It's like not being at sea, but on the lake with emerald green colored water and very quiet. If tired of swimming at the beach, could be trekking to the woods or picnic on the other islands.

What's interesting about this one island, a beautiful lagunnya called Segara Anakan. Located at the tip of the island, the water that goes into a giant pool is derived from the waves hitting the reefs periodically through holes, from the notorious Indian Ocean. On the side there is a soft white sand. Lagun water is crystal clear with color shades, ranging from dark green, light green, to blue, plus safe to swim because the water is shallow and not choppy at all.

Pulau Peucang, Banten
Pantai Pulau Pecang
Island Coast Pecang Peucang Island is located in Ujung Kulon National Park. The name 'Peucang' itself means deer in the local language, so there we could see the deer roam.

One hour walk to the north there Copong Reef, a reef off the big hole (copong) and the most beautiful places to enjoy the scenery at sunset.

Kep. Seribu, Jakarta Thousand Islands, one of my favorites because of its access is easiest from Jakarta. Stay to the Ancol or Muara Karang, then climb aboard for 2-3 hours. If less than that, the islands are less clean. But many other island choice because the Thousand Islands has 110 islands with an area almost 11 times greater than Jakarta. Some island populated, in part created the resort, some are left blank uninhabited. If you want cheap, go to the Scout Island or Pulau Tidung. If you had a pocket more, can stay in Pulau Macan, Pulau Sepa, or a quieter Kotok Island. Rent a boat for island hopping to the islands are inhabited. White sand and blue sea is pretty calm for a while escaped from the hustle and bustle of Jakarta.
