Welcome to Cimaja
Cimaja is an attractive, low-key surf resort some 100km south of Bogor, with a good choice of accommodation and several decent and reasonably quiet surf spots (though none attain the epic standards that can be found elsewhere in the archipelago). There's also a mystical quality to the place. After a long sunset session, as you wander back through the rice fields along the canals, you'll hear the ethereal calls to prayer filter through the palms and feel far from Java's teeming cities. All up, the slow pace and oceanic air makes for an exhilarating change that will appeal even to non-surfers.
To get here, you have to pass through the large, unlovely resort of Pelabuhan Ratu; Cimaja is 8km further west.
