Kakaban Lake : Swim With Stingless Jellyfish
Adventure Travel

One of the most famous sight in Derawan islands. The island is located in Berau Regency, East Kalimantan Province. When you touch down on Kakaban you will be greeted by a fairly long pier and an entrance gate.

On the gate and written in Indonesian is a welcome message that translates as something like this: “Welcome to the Tourism Attraction Kakaban Island, Berau Regency.” I remember it was almost lunchtime as I walked down the long pier.


Though my tummy rumbled for food, the beautiful view of Kakaban island couldn’t be missed. I took a while walking along the pier and admiring the beauty of Kakaban island. The real highlight though was hidden in the shaded lake at the centre of the Island; thousands of stingless jellyfish! To get onto the island we had to pass through a small gate and pay a registration fee.

Then you walk along a wooden bridge that leads to the forest and eventually to the Kakaban Lake It’s a 300 meter walk with great views of the forest under the dappled shade of the trees. (please always remember to be extra careful when you are climbing up or descending down the wooden bridge or stairs as it is really slippery, especially when it is in wet. I almost fell on the way back from the lake to the jetty).
