5 Jakarta Adventure Activities -Thrilling activities to experience in Indonesia’s capital city!

There are plenty of adventure activities in Indonesia to choose from. In addition to diving in the Java Sea, trekking in the surrounding forests, VR gaming, and sea kayaking, there are so many more! Let's take a quick look into the top 5 adventure activities!


Pulau Seribu Scuba Diving

Pulau Seribu, popularly known as the Thousand Islands, is the ideal choice for those short on time in Indonesia yet wanting world-class diving. It's a popular beach getaway only 3 hours from Jakarta's port, in the Java Sea. Pulau Harapan, Pulau Tidung, Pulau Macan as well as the Pulau Genteng Besar are renowned diving as well as snorkelling sites. Scuba trips to the islands typically include boat transfers. Night dive excursions are also available. You may also expect some amazing diving sites. They feature sweeping coral reefs, odd nudibranchs, sea snails, and schools of fish darting around. Larger creatures such as clownfish, sea turtles, and barracuda do frequent the area.


Wakeboarding and Flyboarding

Although Jakarta may not boast the finest beaches in Indonesia, there are plenty of locations to unwind and soak up some sunshine. To unwind, you don't necessarily have to be on a cool beach with a cocktail in hand. Another way to unwind will be to partake in adrenaline-boosting activities. Don't you agree? Yes, several water sports facilities in the city provide wakeboarding and flyboarding. These are definitely two ways to unwind and relax in your own way! What's better than partaking in water sports under the scorching sun! On a different note, if you're looking for a hotel in Pasar Baru Jakarta then there are a few budget options you can check out. For instance, hotels like POP! Hotel Pasar Baru Jakarta offer accommodation for a good price and is only a walking distance away from key attractions and activities.


Sea kayaking

Most individuals who go sea kayaking in Indonesia head out to Bali and Lombok. That does make sense. These are great places to relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. However, if you are not headed to the islands, you can try out sea kayaking in Jakarta which will be your ticket to the warm seas of the south just off the Equator.


Witnessing Krakatoa

The word Krakatoa typically gives goosebumps to geologists as well as volcanologists worldwide. If you are not among them, then here's an explanation: this was the location of the largest contemporary volcanic eruption. It blew up in the 1880s with such power that it was heard all the way in Australia! Krakatoa is now a shadow of its former self. But it is still erupting. It was opened in the 1990s, but due to increased volcanic activity, it has since been closed. So, you may go see the island from afar.


Hiking in Mt Pangrango and Mt Gede

When in Jakarta, you've got to experience Mt Pangrango and Mt Gede. The massif is divided into two enormous – fortunately mainly dormant – stratovolcanoes in the foggy slopes of Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park located just south of Jakarta. You will be able to do both the peaks in one day, but most people do it in two days, quite understandably.
