Discover the neighborhoods of Jepara


Located on the coast of Central Java, Jepara is a city at the center of the country’s teak furniture and wood carving industry. The city is also the gateway to Karimunjawa, as the ferries and other boats all depart from Jepara.

Getting around in Jepara is best done by the local transportation system known as Becaks, which are like a public bus. Being a coastal city, Jepara is a great place for exploring beaches and enjoying a sunny day by the sea. Kartini Beach is a great choice for a relaxing day in the sand or an active day of water sports. The beach is named for the national heroine Kartini, who fought for the equal rights of women in Indonesia. If traveling with kids or a family, a day spent at Kura-Kura Ocean Park would be very well spent. Hotels in Jepara are spread out across the city, with several options available near the waterfront and within easy reach of the city’s popular attractions.
