The best time to visit the islands is during the dry season, generally from April to October. The islands are influenced by the northwest monsoon during which winds from the west-northwest predominate and ocean currents are in an easterly direction. During the monsoon, rainfall averages 40 mm/day. During the southeast monsoon, dry winds from the east-southeast predominate and the ocean currents are in a westerly direction bringing water masses from the Flores Sea. Upwelled water masses during the southeast monsoon from the Flores and Banda Seas provides lower sea surface temperatures than during the northeast monsoon. The shallow slopes (5° to 15°) of the island shelves in the Java Sea (which rarely exceeds a depth of 55 m), provide environments for extensive reef development.

Jalan2: Karimun Jawa, Indonesia, September 2011
Beautiful beaches, white soft sand, tamed sharks, and of course, gorgeous corals 🙂 I went to this island of Karimun Jawa with some college friends and it was awesome. We stay for 4 days with 2 days of snorkeling (2 times each, before and after lunch), breakfast and lunch for 2 days, for only Rp.375.000 (about $40, prices may be different for foreigner), including ferry tickets.
