Where we are
Carita Beach EcoTravel operates all tours, brokered by Java EcoTravel, from its base in Carita. Where you can see the famous Krakatau volcano and also the main access point to the Ujung Kulon National Park. Situated around 150 km north-west of Jakarta along the clear Carita Beach and on the outskirts of the tropical rainforest, Carita Beach is known for the best bay beach of Java. But Carita Beach has much more to offer beyond our red-haired cousins. Only 3 hours far from Jakarta it is an amazing stop for traveling in Java with lots of possibilities for outdoor activities as rafting, tubing, biking or motorcycling. But also for people who are not addicted to trekking or other activities it's nice just to relax a few days in guesthouses close to the beach. Unique nature and friendly people in Jakarta let everybody get adjusted to Sumatra before further travels.
This beach is about a three-hour drive along the highway to the west of Jakarta, and has a great beach for swimming, as the waters are relatively calm on this side of the island. A great place for for adventure tour at Krakatau and Ujung Kulon : swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, fishing, and underwater photography, this resort offers a complete set of facilities including restaurants, accommodation, motorboats, and diving equipments. This beach is located in West Banten, Labuhan district, Padeglang regency, which is accessible by any land transportation and takes about 3 hours drive from Jakarta. The parlous state of conservation in Indonesia, and in Java in particular means that this small, degraded forest behind this busy beach resort is one of the best places to find some of Java's lowland endemics. The forest has heavily used both by tourists (more high school students) and by local woodcutters and trappers. All the forest on the ridge tops appears to have been recently logged and this forest would appear to have a limited future - another victim of Indonesia's economic woes.
vast stretch of white sandy beach decorated with rows of sheltering trees and the magnificent view of the Krakatau volcano on the horizon, that is what awaits at Carita Beach. Situated pleasantly on the shoreline facing the Sunda Straits at the western end of Java Island, in the Pandeglang regency, in the province of Banten, this indulging beach is only a three hours’ drive away from the bustling capital city of Jakarta.
