Karimun Jawa

Marine Paradise of Java Sea


The Karimun Jawa archipelago, located in the Java Sea, across the capital city of Semarang, has everything to offer for divers and backpackers who enjoy trekking and snorkeling along a gorgeous beach. The Karimunjawa National Park (not to be confused with the Karimun Islands in Bintan, Riau) is one of seven marine national parks in Indonesia. Taking only a four to five-hour trip from Semarang, you will be surrounded by a natural beauty so stunning, you wish you could stay here forever.

Vibrant Marine Life in the North of Java

The sparkling beaches and pristine seas are home to healthy coral reefs that scatter around an 80 km wide area all the way to the coast of Jepara. Here, you can find two protected marine biota species. Namely, the black coral (Antiphates sp )and organ pipe coral (Tubipora musica). Others include the triton trumpet, the horned helmet, and the pearly-chambered nautilus. There are hawksbill turtles as well as common green turtles too. Above the surface, you can also witness the red-breasted parakeet and other tropical bird species.
