One more attraction of Pari Island is the abundant availability of fresh water that cannot be found on all the islands in the Thousand Islands.

When viewed through google earth, Pari Island is located in a group of islands in Jakarta waters which line from South to North with coordinates 6 “0’14” North Latitude and 106 “46’44” East Longitude.

Through the map, it can also be seen that the location of this island is not far from Pramuka Island which is the seat of the Thousand Islands government, as well as several other islands such as Tidung Island, Lancang Island and Rambut Island.

Based on information collected from several tourism sites such as tripadvisor, traveloka, disdus, pegipegi and others.

Also from several general websites such as Wikipedia, Kaskus, Tempo, Kompas and others, the island with an area of ​​around 43 hectares is named Pari Island because it has a shape like a stingray.

The island is divided into two areas, namely Pari Island in the East and Pari Island in the West. The eastern area is a coastal area and tourist attractions, while the western part is a residential area occupied by no less than 700 residents.

Administratively, Pari Island is a sub-district that is part of the South Seribu Islands District, Seribu Islands Regency, DKI Jakarta Province.

Before being known as a tourist place, Pari Island during the colonial period was a place of refuge for residents. During the independence period, the island’s waters became a place for fishing by residents living on Tidung Island and Pramuka Island.

Furthermore, Pari Island is used as a village for fishermen who is also used as a research location for marine life.

Therefore, in the west of the island there is the LON LIPI (Oceanographic Institute LIPI) office which until now is always visited by students and researchers who will conduct research on marine ecosystems in the island’s waters.

That is why, it is not surprising that currently Pari Island is also known for its eco-tourism.

Pari Island was introduced to tourists around 2010. Initially, only tourists around Jakarta, Tangerang, Bekasi, Bogor and Bandung came to this island.

Along with the incessant promotion carried out by the Thousand Islands Regency Government and the complete facilities for visitors plus the number of tourist agencies that make it easier for tourists to travel to this island, Pari Island is never devoid of visitors including tourists from abroad.

Interestingly, the number of tourists visiting here is limited to only 500 people per week, in order to maintain cleanliness, beauty and comfort in the Pari Island area.

That’s why during big holidays such as Eid, Christmas and New Year and during the holiday season, many tourists are forced to queue to enjoy the beauty of Pari Island.

Head for Pari Island

Similar to a trip to other islands in the Thousand Islands, there are two places to visit Pari Island to find means of crossing transportation.

Namely at Marina pier on Ancol Beach and Kaliadem Harbor in Muara Angke, North Jakarta.

For travelers who have more budget and want to get to Pari Island quickly, they can go to Marina pier and rent a speedboat for IDR 250,000 – IDR 300,000.

Travel by speedboat only takes about 1 – 1.5 hours.

As for backpackers who want to save money or want to feel more of an adventure, they can take a ferry or barge at Kali Adem Harbor at a rate of IDR 50,000.

Traveling by ferry or barge takes about 2 – 2.5 hours.

Before crossing, make sure you bring a sufficient amount of cash for your needs while on Pari Island, because this island does not have an ATM machine.

You also have to prepare yourself to be isolated from the outside world, because cellphone signal in this island area is very difficult.

Apart from these two things there is nothing to worry about, because there are many stalls in the island area to fill the stomach. In fact, when visiting this island, it’s good to taste the special culinary delights of Pari Island, namely sea urchin dishes.

This poisonous animal, which also has the name Hedgehog, has yellow flesh which at first glance looks like fish eggs. With the taste of soft, sweet and savory meat, it is sure to spoil your tongue.

As a place for seaweed cultivation, Pari Island also has a unique snack, namely candied seaweed that can be enjoyed while exploring the island area or used as souvenirs when returning home.

Apart from candied seaweed, other typical snacks are pickled squid, breadfruit chips and candied ceremai fruit.

It’s not just a matter of eating, even for lodging matters, even though there isn’t a single hotel on this island.

Lodgings on Pari Island are residents’ houses that were transformed into inns or homestays, although there are also inns that are made separate from their residence.

The accommodation is equipped with various facilities, such as air conditioning, dispenser, refrigerator, bathroom inside, and others.

The rental price for each room varies, depending on the facilities and your bargaining skills because the room rental price is negotiable. However, the average price for lodging rental is between Rp. 500,000 – Rp. 700,000 per night.

One thing to note when staying on Pari Island is never to memorize street names but memorize house numbers and RT numbers. Because the streets in the township area are like a labyrinth that is narrow and boxy.

Attractiveness

No different from other islands in the Thousand Islands, the attraction of Pari Island is the beautiful panoramic view of the beach with its white and soft sand.

To enjoy the panoramic beauty of the beach, you can go to Virgin Sand Beach and Kresek Beach.

At Perawan Sand Beach, there are unspoiled scenery along the coastline which has a length of about 500 meters. This beach facing north is surrounded by mangrove forests so that the atmosphere it presents is cool and fresh.

There is also a lagoon here that shows its clean white sand at low tide. Among the stretch of sand, you can sometimes find shells and other sea animals that are carried by the waves.

Beauty

The same beauty can also be found at Kresek Beach with its turquoise sea water. It’s just that this beauty is tarnished during the West monsoon, because the coastal area is often used as a berth for rubbish from other islands.

Fortunately, local residents and cleaners on this island are always on the alert, so that the rubbish that litter the coastal area never piles up.

One more favorite place for tourists when visiting Pari Island is Bukit Matahari, which is located next to a pier on this island.

It is named Bukit Matahari because this place is ideal for enjoying the moment the sun rises and sets, as well as for capturing the surrounding scenery in a photo frame.

Besides enjoying the beauty of the natural panorama and looking for beautiful spots for photo backgrounds, there are many other interesting activities that can be done on Pari Island.

You can rent a wind bike to explore the area, or enjoy the clear sea water with calm waves by bathing and swimming.

A number of rides and watersports are also ready to pump your adrenaline and drain your excitement via banana boats, donut boats and canoes.

If you want to explore the water for fishing or looking for snorkeling spots, there are fishing boats available for rent.

One more activity that is a favorite of tourists when visiting Pari Island is holding a barbecue party, both on the beach and in front of the inn.

Through this activity, intimacy can be built between tourists in one group, or can get to know each other with other tourists, and build closeness with local residents.
