Finally, I happened to make a visit to Karimunjawa Islands. A little archipelago just on the north of Central Java, belong to Jepara City. Actually my purpose wasn't for vacation. My Conservation class is requiring a field trip to do monitoring, social-economic survey, and a coastal clean up. But after the whole schedule was finished it's time to go back home, suddenly there's an announcement that we had to extend our stay in the island. There's no ferry to bring us back home for the next two days.
I immediately rented a motorbike and cruised to the entire island from the harbor to the very north part of Kemojan. I can say the road was terrible and not well-maintained. But their beaches? They are magnificent. Absolutely breathtaking. And what I meant by 'breathtaking', it has a long white soft and white sandy floor, clear water, and coconuts on the edge. If you're a summer-worshiper, Karimunjawa might be your truly paradise. With the sun came out no less than seven in the morning until twelve hours ahead, coconut water being sold in little warungs, and fresh sea foods for your daily dinner, I really could find any other words to describe how comforting the island really is.
