This trip was an accidental trip. My uncle asked me to go with his family to a beach. I didn’t think much and said “okay” because i had free time.
And, off we go!
My uncle had appointment to go fishing with his friends. His wife, me, and my cousin stayed overnight in a small-comfort resort. The day after, my uncle invited us to went to some place, but we need to took speed boat. So off we go!
I didn’t really think much because i didn’t really fancy beach as much. The reason was i grow up on a beach island and i didn’t really think beach was something new. Also, there were beaches behind our small resort, so i wasn’t really exciting about it.
BUT I WAS WRONG.
After an hour on the speed boat, we arrived at an island. Named Peucang island. AND I WAS SHOCK.
Look. I know there’re a lot of beautiful island like this one, but… the ideas of somewhere near Jakarta have something like this… i just can’t think about it.
I know there’s Pulau Seribu island (never go there yet), but it wasn’t that close to Jakarta.
This island, though i was three night two days on the resort, only need an hour with speed boat to went there. Also, my uncle went to the resort to went fishing so… If we cut those concern, we only need two days one night or even a day a night. We went on friday night with my uncle’s cars and went home on sunday night.
This island is near Ujung Kulon National Park (home for Javan rhinocheros) and Krakatau volcano.
Peucang Island is an island located in the Panaitan strait of Pandeglang Regency, Banten or east of Ujung Kulon National Park.
This island along with Panaitan Island and Handeuleum Island are included in the Ujung Kulon National Park area so that not a few tourists who visit Ujung Kulon Park, also visit this white sandy island.
Because in the Ujung Kulon National Park area, Peucang Island is also accepted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with Panaitan Island and Handeuleum Island.

So.. i took some picture with my camera (yes, fortunatelly i bring my camera because my uncle told me to. If he didn’t told me, i wouldn’t bring it. Thank you!)
So sad i only took some, the other was my photos with my uncle’s family. Also, there’s an incident, one of his friend’s children got stung by jellyfish.. so.. yeah… we were a little bit aware lol.
But, that’s okay actually.
Also, i really want to enjoy the beach. It’s really beautiful. I mean… really beautiful. There’re some people life on that island. There’re monkeys too. But they’re not that wild.
People went there for snorkeling, diving, and fishing, as for me… i was just…. dipping my foot into water and took pictures. Glad i said “okay” that day, because though i lived near those place, i’ll never know if i can go there ever again.
I’m very lucky to have that opportunity, seeing that kind of beauty.
I think it was 2011.
How about you? Do you like beach? Or what kind of destination do you prefer?
