Where to stay in Batu Karas!

Villa Monyet (www.villamonyetjava.com) is hands down the pick of all accommodation available in Batu Karas. The rooms were fantastic, really quite affordable and best of all, located just across the road from the main surf break. More importantly however, after just a week long stay I felt like I’d lived there my whole life. My vocabulary isn’t broad enough to convey how great Villa Monyet and Batu Karas was as a whole! To put it simply, everyone was just beyond welcoming and super friendly.

   
         
Getting there…

I believe most visitors to Batu Karas fly either domestically or internationally into Jakarta and from there fly with Suci Air to Pangandaran before taking a short taxi ride to Batu Karas.

Alternatively, you can do as I did by flying into Yogyakarta before enlisting the help of a quality driver in order to tackle the 8-9 hour drive to Batu Karas through some very remote areas.
