Umang Island, situated in Banten province, is a small island perfect for your tropical getaway. Especially when you've done some business in Jakarta, since Umang Island is only 4,5 hours away from the bustling city.
The five-hectare private island is maintained by a single management, Umang Island Resort and Spa, which offers the same comfort as a star-rated hotel with relaxing ambiance.
The location is also very strategic for nature trekkers as it's near the UNESCO heritage site Ujung Kulon National Park. Umang Island is also well-protected from the West Java sea storms as there's Tanjung Lesung beach to the north and Panaitan Island to the west.
So whenever you feel like lazying around a white sandy beach overlooking the crystal sea water, you should try Umang Island, where the beauty of nature may give you peace and tranquility.
The resort provides two choices of transportation:
- Car Rental/Tourism Bus (Jakarta - Umang)
- Free Shuttle Boat (Mainland - Umang)
The island is reachable via a five-minute speedboat ride from the shores of Sumur, Pandeglang, which is about four hours away by car from the bustling city of Jakarta. You can even bring your own car because the resort provides a free 24-hour secure parking lot in Sumur, plus an accomodation for your driver.
To get to Sumur from Jakarta, you can choose one of the two options below:
Route 1 (via Pandeglang) 183 Km
