Always wear footwear

Always wear our footwear while in Karimunjawa Islands, because there are many sharp coral debris and sea urchins that can hurt our feet. Corals containing mocus substances which when scratched leave small amounts of animal protein and calcareous material in the wound.

Seafood tasting

In Karimunjawa square, there are a variety of fresh seafood dishes, ranging from lobster, crab, squid and super large shrimp, to shellfish. We can choose a variety of spices for the menu, there is rica sauce to spicy sweet soy sauce. We can also choose the processing method, fried or burned according to our tastes.

Electricity only lights up at night  NOW 24hrs

Electricity in Karimunjawa only lights up from 5pm to 6am 24 hours. When the electricity is on, you should immediately charge your handphone or power bank.
(Update: Now you dont need to worry, Karimunjawa have 24 H electricity on the main island and Kemujan island)

When the electricity goes out during the day, we can use the time outside with a variety of fun activities on the beach. At night, there is usually a bonfire party held in several homestays. This will add to the sense of community among tourists, both local and foreign.
