“Water Pollution Hazzard”
Review of Ancol Beach Pool

Ancol Beach Pool
Ranked #125 of 301 things to do in Jakarta
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Ancol is probably the most popular attraction in the 1960-1980. But the beach, in particular, is basically gone.

Despite having other attractions, such as Dunia Fantasy [Fantasy World, Indonesian version of Disneyland), a water park, floating music stage, some good restaurants, and sea animals show, the water quality at its beach is no longer clean.

Ancol is located in the Jakarta city's estuary area. The city has bad water management / sewage, so you can imagine yourself what kind of water you have at the mouth of a city with 10 million population. This is a simple hint for you about the water: you can not see fishes or living sea creatures at Ancol the beach, although You may see some boats taking tourists around for a very short trip or some people who play water sports.

A used-to-be wonderful beach that needs a rejuvenation. I play drone here instead of swimming.

Protected from the sea by breakwater, this artificial pool is a great place for kids. Vendors are ready with everything you may need to maximise your fun in the water.

It’s free to swim or play sands on this location.

Also there’s another floating obstacle play area nearby, you have to pay extra for it. It called Aqua Fun. Went here yesterday and it was fun for all ages. Gotta go with a group for maximum laughter & memories. Playtime about 1 hour and they provide 1 person to supervise, help out and play (especially with a young one). He was patient and encouraging smaller kids in our group. Tips will be nice since he didn’t make much money. You can save a bit by finding a deal on the internet before heading down there. Our group was the only one playing there so feel like a private play date. The equipment looks quite dirty and fading but they did maintained it quite well. It’s a sea water so the calcium were forming on the bottom creating “rock sharp” edges so be careful when you climb back up from swimming/falling off water. Some kids in our group got long scratches at different location on their body. Other than that, be adventurous

Pack your picnic basket, rent a picnic mat and enjoy your day at the beach. It's quiet and peaceful, clean sand! There are a few fast food restaurants around the area. Need not pay to enjoy the beach.

Ancol including the beach that the city community in Jakarta, precisely in jl. lodan no 7, Jakarta utara, DKI Jakarta. There are so many rides games in ancol, one of them is a fantasy world or often called dufan. There are many games or rides in dufan. But unfortunately now Ancol dream garden is not maintained anymore, has a lot of garbage everywhere especially around the ancol beach. But even so Ancol dream garden remains a favorite choice of citizens of Jakarta for recreation
