Trip Pulau Bira (21-22 March 2015)

At this moment i want to share about my trip to Bira Island.

I go to this Island on 21-22 March 2015, because of invitation from my friend.
Before the story begin, I'll start with short introduce about Bira Island..

Enjoy reading and view the video (at the end of this story)

Bira Island (Pulau Bira) is an Island that located at Thousand Island (Kepulauan Seribu), Jakarta.
There's many famous island around Kepulauan Seribu like Pramuka Island, Pari Island, Tidung Island. At this time I go to Bira Island.

As we can see on the information board when arrived on this island, Bira Island actually belongs to PT. Patra Jasa, it's a company of Pertamina that have business on hospitality and property. (

But when I came to this Island on March 2015, it seems that the company not yet managed this Island, cause the building on this island is abandoned by the owner before since 2005.

Bira Island have 20 "luxury cottage", but at this time only 8 cottage that utilized by island guard for rent to the public, because only this cottage that have feasible condition for rent. the electricity on this island powered by generator set and only available from 5 pm till 7 am.

why I called "luxury cottage"?
it because the cottage have parlor with mini bar (now used as bedroom), 2 bath room, 1 bed room with 2 bed include mosquito net, 1 refrigerator (broken), 1 sofa at parlor, 2 Air Conditioner (broken) and using wooden floor.

Maybe some of you after read what i write above thinking why I go there? didn't i looking information about this island before?
and the answer is YES... I'm not doing research on the internet before go there, I just trust my friend that invite me to join the trip. 

But... after going back from this island i can say that... I'm not disappointed going here, but I can say.. Lucky i'm going here at this time... 


1. Because when i go to this Island while the resort still good, I'm sure the cost will very high. The cost 2 day 1 night at Bira Island when I go is 475.000 Rupiah (around 40USD)
2. The underwater view were good.
3. We can enjoy the beach any time.. because the beach located in front of our cottage.
