10 Epic Places in Indonesia Even Locals Don't Know About
With more than 17,000 islands, countless mountains, expansive coastlines and an endless list of natural wonders, Indonesia will never run out of travel destinations. From a mysterious lake to remote islands, discover epic places in Indonesia that even the locals don’t know about.
Komodo Island, the land of the mighty komodo dragon, is well-known, but not many people know about a similar island off Indramayu, West Java. Giant monitor lizards roam free, along with other exotic bird and fish species. The island is also home to a majestic lighthouse built during Indonesia’s colonial era. Pulau Biawak, or Biawak Island, is characterized by dense mangrove in the middle and stunning beaches with rich corals around the edge.

Parangkusumo Sand Dunes
It might be surprising to learn about such sand dunes on a beautiful tropical archipelago like Indonesia. Even many locals don’t suspect that Yogyakarta hides massive sandbanks. Located near a more popular destination, the Parangkusumo Beach, this sandbank attracts travelers and adventurers to try sand-boarding in a natural landscape so rare in Indonesia.
Pulau Pombo, or Pombo Island, is a hidden tropical paradise in Ambon, Maluku, in the less-traveled east region of Indonesia. This small island is inhabited by pombo birds, two-colored pigeons unique to the region. As a remote pristine island, Pulau Pombo has clean white sand, lush greenery, and sparkling blue water. But the area is as beautiful underwater as it is on land, with flourishing coral adding vibrant colors to the brilliant blue ocean.
This lake in Kakaban Island, East Kalimantan (Borneo) is also known as the jellyfish lake for an obvious reason. Danau Kakaban (Kakaban Lake) is home to at least four different species of jellyfish with one thing in common: they do not sting. So, the hundreds of jellyfish floating underwater is more of an attraction for tourists than an annoyance. They live in the rather peculiar habitat of a semi-salt-water lake trapped inside a small island. Therefore, the species living in the lake show atypical behaviors that have captivated scientists and adventurers alike.
Hallo diver , jumpa lagi dengan PusatDiving, kali ini saya mau share Spot Diving yang keren banget yaitu Spot Kakaban – Kalimantan Timur ,Danau yang satu ini memang unik karena merupakan danau purbakala yang menjadi tempat hidup para ubur-ubur yang jenisnya sangat langka, karena tidak menyengat dan tidak beracun. Terletak di Pulau Kakaban, pulau ini juga sering didatangi bersamaan dengan Pulau Derawan, Maratua, dan Sangalaki karena sama-sama memiliki palung yang dalam. Di kawasan ini juga dapat ditemukan hiu white tip dan hiu tutul, dan sering dijumpai pula gerombolan baraccuda. Spot paling favorit adalah Blue Light Cave #kakaban #danaukakaban #pusatdiving #diving #divingindonesia #snorkeling #snorkelingindonesia #pulau #pantai #laut #kalimantan #kalimantantimur #pulauderawan #maratua #sangalaki #underwater #bawahlaut #uburubur #biotalaut #wisatabahari #wisatabawahlaut #wisataair
A natural pavilion from which to enjoy a picturesque view of the coastline, cliffs, ocean, and jungles, Tebing Lamreh is a hidden paradise in the Special Region of Aceh. From this cliff, tourists can see Weh Island, the westernmost point of Indonesia, and other small islands scattered in the ocean. The cool fresh breeze and sunset views are further reasons to visit this place.
Tebing Lamreh, Surga Yang Tersembunyi Di Ujung Barat Pulau Sumatera Bila di Bali ada Uluwatu, maka di Aceh ada Tebing Lamreh. Anjungan batu karang yang terjal dan tinggi serta menjorok ke laut ini pantas disamakan dengan Uluwatu yang ada di Bali. Betapa tidak, Anda akan takjub melihat hamparan laut luas yang biru yang menyegarkan mata, di tambah lagi degan desiran angin yang tenang.

Air Terjun Laguna
Air Terjun Laguna (Laguna Waterfall) is a remote attraction nestled in the middle of dense pine woods. Not many eyes have seen this place, but those who have could have sworn that this is the most beautiful waterfall in Indonesia. Surrounded by lush vegetation, exquisite birds and butterflies, and epic cliffs, this waterfall is certainly worth the long journey through the woods.
Beji Guwang Canyon
Also known as “the hidden canyon of Beji Guwang”, this beautiful spot has managed to escape Bali’s bustling tourism scene. Some people who have been lucky enough to witness its beauty have said that you can observe various human expressions in the canyon’s curves. Located near the popular Sukawati Market and the temple of Pura Dalem Guwang, this place is considered sacred by locals.
Edelweiss Garden of Pananjakan
Most locals (and many international tourists) have heard or witnessed the captivating beauty of Mount Bromo, an active volcano in East Java. But few have traveled the extra mile to reach the carpets of edelweiss flowers, framed by the beautiful mountain. The beauty of this savanna matches the world-famous sunrises, and tourists can actually enjoy both in one visit.
This magnificent cliff complex remains unknown to many locals. On weekdays, some of the cliffs are occupied by the training military, proving that this is not an adventure for just anyone. In fact, you have to be a certified rock climber to even attempt to ascend to some of the cliffs. But once you do, you’ll have an unrestricted view of the city. Located in Padalarang, Bandung, this spot is near the better-known Pawon Cave and Stone Garden.
Located in the middle of the Jayawijaya ridge, the beauty of Danau Idenberg (Idenberg Lake) is reserved for those who are fit and adventurous enough to reach it. This lake is considered mysterious because sometimes the water overflows, while at other times it appears to be dry. Some mountain climbers have also reported sightings of black swans, considered odd due to the height and atmosphere. The surrounding white-flecked mountaintops are a rare sight in a tropical paradise like Indonesia.
