Bira Besar Island is one of the islands in the Thousand Islands which is quite famous for those beach lovers and underwater scenery hunters. This island is not as famous as Tidung Island or others, so there aren't too many visitors. This tourist destination was once even one of the island hopping destinations or island cruises on the island of Hope. Though the island is in fact very feasible to be a major holiday destination besides the island of Hope.
As noted earlier, Bira Besar Island is located quite far from Ancol Jakarta Bay and to reach it you have to use a fast boat for about 3 hours. If you depart from Muara Angke using a ferry crossing, the travel time is even further, which is about up to 5 hours. But you don't need to worry because all your efforts will pay off when you arrive at the tourist site.
Once set foot on the pier, the natural scenery of the island will definitely immediately amaze you. Because the waters are still very clear and natural, you can even witness firsthand the underwater scenery and its various marine life by sitting on the edge of the pier. Do not forget to capture the beautiful underwater scenery.
The atmosphere around the deserted island will make you like a vacation on a privately owned island. This is because the bira besar island is a resort island, so there are no residents who live here as it is on Harapan Island or Tidung Island. Thus, if you want to stay on Bira Besar Island, of course you have to rent transportation, accommodation in the form of cottages or hotels, and also a private tour guide, but don't worry, because Java Private Tour can provide everything for you, but considering the number of rental rooms and guest houses which is very limited, it requires you to make reservations in advance of your arrival, especially during the holiday season.
