Anyer is a place to chill! if you're looking for nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for some peaceful, relaxing and solitude you should visit Anyer.
And the food there is heaven. We tried a few local shop and we were intoxicated with seafood..:D The shop i highly recommend are Wareong Elbe somewhere along Markassar & Markassar which is located right in front of Mambruk Hotel. Overall we preferred Waroeng Elbe. We had so much of Cumi-which is squids in their language & Kepiting(crab). The prawns are really fresh too! Overall we loved everythin!
it was just ok if you are trying to escape from the busy jakarta....but don't expect the beach would be stunning, the sand were clear white etc they were not.
Anyer is famous for the beaches and if you want to go to the Beach near Jakarta ... Anyer is one of the beach near Jakarta
Recommend Tanjung Lesung also..but not the beach around Anyer, since it's too crowded..choose Carita instead
Anyer overall is a nice place to visit with group of friends or family. You can find white sand beach all along the road, outdoor activities like banana boat is also available.
For those who drives there your own, its easy to travel because there is only one road there and in a very good condition. What lack of Anyer is not many food stall / restaurant available outside the hotels, and if there is, the prices are very expensive and doesnt taste that good. For those who likes shopping, they have several souvenir stores that sell local products such as t shirts, etc.
Traffic is quite bad towards the city. Should've think about the accessibility to grow the city into tourism area.
I find it a quiet town since we went their on a weekday with less cars or tourist on the road which was certainly a great way to go around and we had the pool and beach head all to ourselves.
Anyer is good city for holiday specially for the beach lovers, if you had been goes to bali you can get different experience at anyer.
The environment more quietly so it is god for family or couples travelers. It took 2 hours from Soekarno Hatta International Airport, you can use DAMRI Bus or taxi but for the best value i recomended for using DAMRI Bus as a shutle bus.
Many beaches and hotels, nearest place from jakarta, be compared than others in West Java. sometimes get traffic jam since the road is not width and not a good condition
Anyer is a small town with a great beach, it located not far from Jakarta busy town. To go to Anyer, it only takes 3 to 4 hours driving from J-town, depends on the traffic and quality of the road.
But basically its a great place to get away for a while from the busy J-town. Anyer also has many nice with a reasonable price Seafood restaurants. Highly recommend this place :)
Beaches, sun, friendly people, seafood are all enjoyable. Bring your bikes so that you can sightseeing along the kong sea-side or the road and find nearby restaurant easily.
When traffic is good, it's very close to Jakarta for a good weekend getaway. I suggest minimum stay of 2 nights for doing water activities and a bit of relaxation time.
If you are more adventerous you can try canoeing, jetskiing and parasailing. In Marbella Hotel, there's a water activities center where you can find various activities including snorkling in some surrounding islands using motor boat. Riding ATV is also cool, for Rp50,000 you can ride for 25 minutes. You can find some quite good food in Anyer. But I dont recommend buying seafood from stalls on the beach unless you are expert in examining the raw ones. Otherwise you will be disappointed because it's not that fresh. There's Sup Ikan Tatakan, it's clear sour broth is nice. They also have very good beef satay. There are some chinese food restaurant too, we ate at 9 Sembilan and it's quite good value for your money.
