Nusa Kambangan Island, Cilacap
(3.5/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
Indonesia's infamous Nusa Kambangan Island, also known as "Execution Island" or "Alcatraz of Indonesia," has since the mid 1990s been open for tourists interested in exploring the mix of stunning nature and notorious history. The island is biologically diverse and home to wildlife extinct elsewhere in Indonesia, but is sadly more famous for its maximum-security prisons and executions of death row inmates. If you decide to visit the scenic beaches and lush protected rainforests, you will need to obtain a license in Cilapap, after which you can join a guided tour of the island. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Cilacap holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Nusa Kambangan Island and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
