It is said that Carita Beach is the closest decent beach to Jakarta, but this is misleading on several fronts. Firstly, it isn't a decent beach. Despite being some 120kms from the capital, the water is murky and full of garbage. It attracts enormous numbers...More

Carita is no longer a beach resort, and possibly never was. The beach is lined with decrepit, abandoned condo buildings. The beach is long but the water and beach are dirty and littered with rubbish. If you are white you will pay 10x the amount...More

The authorities should take control about this because the beach was very beautiful, and it was not that far from jakarta. Lots of "pungli" around the beach
