When visiting Peucang island, you'll agree that it has the most beautiful beaches in Java. The water is so clear and blue and the sand so white and soft.
The island is still a hidden treasure: not many Indonesian people know or visit this place the number of visitors is restricted due to the limited accommodation, so you'll mostly find yourself alone on the beach which make it feels like you're being in a private island.
Another great part of the island is its striking natural habitat.
The only activities on the island are swimming, snorkeling, trekking & island hopping, there's night life/pub/café, etc.Therefore I highly recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a quiet, hidden and beautiful place around Java.
