Experience an unforgettable one-day adventure from Jakarta to the legendary Krakatoa volcano. Krakatoa, known for its historic eruption in 1883, offers visitors a unique blend of natural beauty and historical significance. In the early morning at 6:00 AM, your driver will pick you up from your hotel in Jakarta. From there, embark on a 3-hour journey to the west coast of Carita beach. Upon arrival, breakfast will be served before boarding a boat to cruise to Krakatoa volcano, a journey that takes approximately 1.5 hours. Upon arrival at Krakatoa, begin your ascent of the volcano's child, which typically takes around an hour. The scenery is breathtaking, featuring pristine seas, lush green vegetation, and striking red volcanic rocks cascading into the ocean from the crater. The trek itself is relatively easy, starting in dense, healthy jungle before transitioning to volcanic ash slopes. After descending, return to the boat for your next destination. Next, cruise to Rakata Island, home to the Legon Cabe coral reefs, also known as 'big' Krakatoa, just a 20-minute boat ride away. Here, enjoy excellent snorkeling opportunities, with stunning views of Anak Krakatoa's peak in the distance. Lunch will be served on the beach of Rakata Island, providing a picturesque backdrop for your meal. Afterward, cruise back to Carita, arriving around 4:30 PM, before transferring back to Jakarta, marking the end of the tour.
