Amazing beach + waters
aug. 2020
TL;DR:
Beautiful Beaches, Crystal Clear Water, Facilities / Room: Outdated / Smelled, Service: Poor, Food: Poor Indonesian - Recommended & will come back more prepared.

-----

We booked a 3 day 2 night stay through a thousand islands tour agent. Left Marina Ancol at 8am, took us about 1.5 hrs in the sepa speedboat. They X out the middle seats for social distancing. Hot/Warm in the boat as the AC was broken both ways.

We had an amazing time swimming in this crystal clear blue waters. The clean white sanding beaches and waters were the best part of Sepa. We snorkeled near the piers and on both sides of the islands. There are fish everywhere even a few meters from shore especially when you attract them with bread. Snorkeling gear is available for rent from the dive office (100k / day). There are a few rocks in the waters near the shore but after that all sand other than the reef.

My family stayed in 3 Penyu cabins. The room ACs are very weak so it takes a while for the room to cool down. The rooms were relatively clean except for the bathroom. The bathroom smelled like sewage, which seemed to be coming from one of the drains. Unfortunately, the bathroom smell would leak into the bedroom. We couldn't tell how clean the bedding was so we use a lot of mosquito spray and slept on top of the bedding. The facilities in general need updating. None of the buildings have been renovated in 20+ years.

The overnight stay includes lunch, dinner and breakfast. The food provided was passable buffet style indonesian food. We brought some additional snacks in case the food was inedible. Additionally, they offered to contact local fishermen to bbq lobster and crab for dinner (additional charge). The island has a little market selling cold drinks and different crackers / cookies.

We hired a boat for a fun 3 hour snorkeling trip to about 4 nearby reefs (250-500k/hr). We also used their jetski (only 1 working) (300k / 15 mins) a few times during our stay.

4 of us also did an introductory dive, which was fun but unfortunately the water was a times murky.

For the most part we were alone on the right side beach. There were 20-30 visiting divers but we didn't see them often other during meal times.

We did have a few incidents with small jellyfish that were hard to see and left a surprise sting but didnt last long.

Overall, great time at the beach and loved snorkeling in water. We spent most of our time other than eating and sleeping in the swimming / snorkeling in the water. Recommended and will come back more prepared next time with food, etc.

Sepa岛周末之旅
mar. 2020
周末闲来无事,一个人打卡听说了很久的sepa岛。 雅加达北面港口之间大船过去,早上八点半开船,二个半小时的行程。
到了sepa岛去了民俗安顿下来。中午民宿便餐,下午就开船出去浮潜。 回来后岛上可以骑着自行车四处转一转,漂亮的五颜六色的房子,原生态的环境,朴素的民风。可以去海滩上拍拍照,吹吹风。如果有太阳好的天气可以欣赏一下日落。晚上bbq,不过品种只有烤鱼烤香肠椰汁。 海滩边有沙滩排球,室外ktv,百分之九十九都是雅加达来的印记本地居民。第二天一早可以去欣赏日出,再骑车在整个岛上转一圈,感受宁静安详的气氛。 大概早上十一点左右赶大船返回雅加达,继续两个半小时船程。
总之,整个一天半的假期,非常的放松,享受远离雅加达城市的喧嚣,海水也还算干净。 周末小憩,不错的选择… 温馨提示,晕船的同学自备晕车药,上船后尽量躺着睡一觉就到啦…:)

Boring
feb. 2020 • Venner
We used a company called ( UNIVERSAL INDOJAVA TRAVEL ) they were unprofessional as the trip should be 1 hour and 30 min as they told us before and it turned out 3 hours to reach SEPA island because the company took us on boat not direct to SEPA which he stopped 6 time to drop another passengers to different islands. I called the company to complain they said we are sorry and refunded 10% of what we paid and it’s not enough for lying to us.
After we arrived we were shocked the island was too small and boring nothing to do except few water activists.
The Restuarnt food not that nice also.
I would never go again.

Definitely would recommend - try to go overnight if you can
nov. 2019
Going to the Thousand Islands was probably the best thing to do in Jakarta. It was so relaxing to swim in that nice warm water!! Clear water. Actually we had the entire beach to ourselves for the most part, it was amazing!

We didn't buy a ticket online ahead of time. We just took a Grab taxi early morning to the Marina Ancol Pier 19 (entrance fee into the marina is 25 000 pp into the marina but free to get out of the marina). Just showed up and the guy selling tickets for the day was sitting there. He speaks English. They have the standard package - speedboat return ticket, beach, 1 hour canoe, and lunch. Does not include towels, so good thing we brought our own. Of course, you can bargain him down. We paid 850 000 rupiah pp. Buffet lunch is not bad, it's ok, but we brought a few snacks and water with us from the city (they give you water on the speedboat too.) Lady at the hotel counter on the island speaks English well. You don't really interact with the locals because they have their section of the island walled off. If you are Muslim and you want to pray, there is a mosque on the island and you may see some locals there.

I would definitely recommend Sepa Island, as the other reviewers said, the further you get out of Jakarta, the less pollution there is. We only had time for a day trip, but if you have time, I would suggest going at least for 1 night because of the 1.5hour boat ride each way takes a toll. We found the speedboat seats to be small and hard/uncomfortable. We went early November so the waters were a little choppy in a few sections on the way but nothing too bad. On the island though, waters were very calm. Also, boat leaves 8am sharp and picks you up 2pm sharp. Lunch is served 12:00-1:30pm I believe.

Beautiful island! Clear blue water all around and white sandy beaches. It’s so sad I only stumbled upon this island instead of staying there. Part of the island is occupied by a resort but the rest of it is empty. Spent the whole day reading, doing yoga etc. Will definitely be back. Entrance fee of 100 or 200 rupiah I can’t remember.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER - EASYBOOK.com
aug. 2019
On 7 August 2019, i made a booking for 2 ferries tickets from Singapore to Bintan via through easy book.com.
I only released that I was charged twice for 2 separate booking reflected on my bank statement.
Immediately i contacted your customer service yesterday, 26 September 2019 telling me that there are no refund based on your company policy.
I wouldn’t have known until i checked my statement. It is not a small amount to pay a total of $430.00 for Ferry tickets. I could have taken a flight instead with it. Why would anyone purchased duplicate tickets for the same trip, aren’t there any notification in place to inform the consumers.

It was my first time booking and had this bad experience with Easy Book.com. This is a complete dissatisfaction and unacceptable response i would have expected from Easy book. I am requesting to speak to your Manager or Director for this matter. As a consumer, i believe i have my rights under Case trust - consumer’s act, Rights and protection for this instance.

This island its one of several islands at a thousand islands area. Less people living here and not a village island so this island quite empty and serene. This islands could be one of your destination to hoop from several island surround of a thousand islands

Don’t bother booking ferry tickets online on easybook
mai 2019 • Par
Operator was unable to locate booking even we paid in advanced and we were forced to join tours at the end paying more than double the cost of the ferry ticket

Advice: only book tours directly don’t bother buying ferry tickets online

“CITY ESCAPE OASIS” “PARADISE FROM JAKARTA HUSTLE AND BUSTLE”
okt. 2018 • Par
Part of “A THOUSAND ISLANDS”, this idyllic resort island is set amongst lush trees, open sandy areas and white beaches.

TRANSPORT

We departed by speedboat from Marina Ancol Pier 19 at 8am for the island 1.5 hours away and returned 2pm. The full day package included return trip, welcome drink, lunch, a 1 hour canoe ride and insurance.

RECEPTION

There is a reception counter where one can obtain a locker key and swim towel. Change rooms and toilet facilities are behind reception.
The convenience kiosk sells various items such as sunscreen, swim wear and anti-motion sickness pills.
There are beach cottages for those who will stay overnight.

LUNCH

Buffet lunch was served at the restaurant with a live band on the Sunday we visited. The band singer was very talented, as he sang popular local songs, then English, Chinese and Indian songs to the delight of every member of the audience.

BEACH

Scattered are recliners along the beautiful beach with clean, clear waters and jellyfish drifting with the currant. There is a great beach vibe, perfect with a good book, live music and drinks. The soft, cool breeze is a relief, unlike the stuffy, hot city temperature.
Snorkeling, boating (canoe), swimming and diving activities are available.

SUMMARY

GREAT GETAWAY from Jakarta pollution, congestion and city pace.
Fantastic hideaway/hideout….
