"Paradise islands an hour from the city"

There aren't many cities that can boast such beautiful tropical islands so close to their ports. Pulau Seribu is Indonesian for Thousands Islands (yes, as in the dressing) and although that's a bit of an exaggeration, there are over a hundred of them. The drawback is that most are owned by the Jakarta elite and hence aren't open to the public. Those that are are owned by hotels, who generally will only sell you a package, including ferry, food and everything bar snorkel hire on the island. They're very expensive, especially by Indonesian standards, but if you can afford it well worth the trip. Accommodation on the one I went to was fairly primitive, especially for the price, but it was bliss to be able to escape the city and stay somewhere so clean and quiet. All we did was swim, snorkel, eat and lie about in the sun and it was magic.
