6. Take a trip to Pulau Seribu
Did you know that Pulau Seribu, is still part of DKI Jakarta? One day trip to pulau seribu is possible but can be exhausting. We recommend heading out and picking a resort in one of the nicer islands out there. The key to find good snorkeling or diving spots in Pulau Seribu is: the farther, the better. Don’t even bother stopping over to the overly visited Pramuka or Tidung, but opt for Pulau Macan or Pulau Harapan, which would take a little longer to get, but will have better beach and underwater view.
