Cost for non locals was 20$ If we would have known that we would not have gone. We though it was 5$, what locals pay. The trip comes with a guide who brings you to all the hot spots and explains everything good. He was quite comical. The beach at the end was so windy we could not enjoy it.... More

We checked out the park with a guide. It was pretty cool. We seen a few different types of monkeys, scorpions, porcupines, WWII bunkers, deer and lots more. It was a nice tour and a good way to spend half a day. The cost was a little more then we usually pay at $20 each (200,000rp) and it was borderline... More

Great for a day out in the fresh air. Incredible scenery, waterfalls, etc. Bring insect repellent and water- few shops around. You may want to bring a waterproof bag too as you'll be doing a lot of swimming. Don't wear flip flops- you'll be sliding around all over the place.

Pangandaran takes around 7 hours drive from Jakarta if you go early in the morning . But its paid when you arrive there. Good beach and easy to find food and hotel. Don't miss to visit Green Canyon and try body rafting. Fun and enjoying. Be careful when you swim at the beach as the wave suddenly come higher bring... More

At the moment with good weather conditions, Pantai Pasir Putih is very comfortable to swim or snorkel during the day and enjoy the sunset in the evening. Cleanliness within the Nature Reserve should be maintained. In the region should be provided adequate bins. Awareness tourists to dispose of waste in place still to be repaired. For example, White Sand Beach... More

After paying a rip off £12 each the £3 price of a guide was a bargain. Without him we might have missed the bats and porcupines in the walk through the cave to the other side of the isthmus. He was full of useful info. You wont do the caves without him and his torches.

My girlfriend and I went with the Tourguide of our guesthouse (Mango guesthouse). Toto, the guide, told us everything about the wildlife, the plants and showed us an amazing spot with a natural infinity pool looking out over the cliffs. He took us along a less official path, so I would advice trying to get him to guide you by... More

Many people here confuse the national park with the green valley and/or green canyon. So be careful when you read all the raving reviews. The park is at the end of the island, and the locals don't really advertise for it that much. The entrance fee is 200.000 and seems decent enough. Walking through the forest, you can smell and...

We hiked through the National Park with 5 People and a Guide from one of the Homestays. It is really a wild walk, because the track is not like a stomped road but a track over trees and stones and through small rivers. You will get your shoes wet so be sure to get the right shoes (no flip flops,...)... More

The only thing i like about this place is that they set the animal free, so u will find deers, peacock on the road... The locals are used to with this so they dont disturb the animals...
