If you come from Jakarta, then you better go straight to Kampung rambutan bus terminal. There's direct shuttle bus from the airport (DAMRI) pay for IDR 20K. then from Kampung rambutan bus terminal, take bus to Pangandaran. But latest bus is at 8PM. the cost will be around IDR 60-80K. Or another option, take bus to tasikmalaya and from there, there's small bus to Cijulang where the bus will lead you closer to batu karas.
If you need further information and direction, you may inbox me, and i would be happy to help you.
Happy traveling and enjoy Indonesia :)
from jakarta airport take a "Blue Bird" taxi (cap) to Bekasi bus terminal or kampung rambutan
it`s cost around 200 000 Rp but it`s the most comfortable way.
if you leave from bekasi ,take the Bis Budiman for around 50 000 Rp
all buses leave frequently.
from kampung rambutan is more dangerous,because there alot of thiefs.
since 2008 is although posible to fly from jakarta and bandung to pangandaran,by Susi Air.
the price one way 500 000 Rp.
1times per day from jakarta and 2times from bandung
take a look on the website www.susiair.com
the new fee from 2010 is 350 000 indo Rph from bandung to pangandaran
from jakarta to pangandaran 600 000 indo Rph
Pangandaran lies more or less halfway between Bandung and Yogyakarta or Dieng. Banjar is the turn-off point on the Bandung-Yogya rail and road route. Coming from Central Java, an alternative is by train and bus all the way to head for Cilacap and make the very nice backwater trip by boat (prahu) from there to Kalipucang, 17 km north of Pangandaran.
From Jakarta you can bus directly to Banjar (via Bogor and Bandung). Buses depart every hour until about 11 pm (from Bekasi bus terminus). It's a good idea to take the night bus (less crowded and faster). Watch your gear at this night run. By train showing your Student Card to the stationmaster you might get a cheaper ticket plus a reserved seat. Getting a minibus expect bad road conditions and bridges down!
it's a night rider [not knight rider a.ka. kitt for david hasselhoff :) ] journey that i choose due to the limited time. so, take a sleep on the way to pangandaran and night sleep in the other bus after reach the destination.
so my itinerary as follows:
19.00 leaving jakarta [from bekasi bus terminus]
03.45 reach pangandaran, west coast
04.00 - 18.30 enjoy sunrise is east coast, visit nature park, traditional and fish markets, beaches, green canyon, surfing area and countrysides
19.00 leaving pangandaran [to kampung rambutan bus terminus]
for me, it's still enjoyable since take aircon buses and there's no cigars smokes around. and opportunity to try local food at the buses' rest area. i bring my lovely saroong to feel like home. also one of my teddies ;)
Despite the picture , this is no joke...
For no money you can rent a bike or a
The advantage is that you are in no time on
a more relaxed and desolate beach. :-)
40 000 Ir is the standard price for a day ,
but you can bargain if it is very quit that
period. (for a motorcycle)
