West Java Surf Trip, Pelabuhan Ratu
Dining in Lombok
West Java holds a special place in my heart, I’ve been living in Jakarta for the past 9 years and every once in awhile I take a trip down to the coast for a surf. On this occassion I had a friend join me and I took him down to the coast for a surf for his birthday. To get from Jakarta to Pelabuhan Ratu you have to go via car and it takes about 3-5 hours depending on what time you leave Jakarta. There are many waves available in Pelabuhan Ratu, from beginner to experienced. We stayed at a place called Cimaja Beach Club which is literally right on the beach and you can watch the waves break from your rooms or from the dining area. On this particular day, a wave by the name of Indicators was beaking due to the large swell that had arrived. So it was a perfect time to take my friend surfing, it was the best birthday present he could have asked for. If you would like to find out more about exploring West Java, send me a message and I will be happy to share my knowledge.
