Where to go to the most exotic beaches in Indonesia? This is the country of islands to find beach paradises. But it is a country of 267 million people. Here I can reveal that one of the famous islands is Bali, but I also want you to try to visit the more mysterious Karimun Jawa, the virgin island.
Karimunjawa is an archipelago of 27 islands in the Java Sea, Indonesia, approximately 80 kilometers northwest of Jepara located in Central Java.
The islands name means ‘a stone’s throw from Java’ in Javanese. They have a total land area of 78 km2. The main island is known as Karimun (2,700 ha), while the second largest island is Kemujan (1,400 ha). The islands’ population is 6,632 (as of 1997) who inhabit seven of the islands.
