Tourists who have come all the way to Jepara who want to travel to Karimunjawa are forced to return. They are not allowed to see the beauty of Karimunjawa because ships destined for Karimunjawa are prohibited from sailing by the authorities forbid. And as can be guessed, this will result in a decrease in tourist visits to the island of Karimunjawa.
As reported by the following online news sites:
“Jepara – Head of Karimunjawa Sub-district, M. Taksin, said that the flow of tourists visiting Karimunjawa Island, Jepara Regency, Central Java, during Ramadan decreased compared to before the Fasting Month.
“We don’t have data on the number of tourist visits. However, the decline can be seen from the level of tourist arrivals who use sea transportation, which tends to decrease compared to normal days,” he said in Jepara, Sunday (28/6).
Tourists who visit Karimunjawa Island, he said, are dominated by residents of Chinese descent. Usually, continued Taksin, entering Lebaran there will be a surge of tourists visiting Karimunjawa Island.
In fact, he said, the local area is full of tourists who come from various regions in the country.
He admitted that he could not confirm the factors that caused the decline in tourist visits at this time, whether it was due to entering the Fasting Month or weather factors.
During the fast, he said, it coincided with the change of season from the western season to the eastern season, which was followed by high waves.
In fact, on Saturday (27/6) shipping activities were also stopped due to high wave conditions accompanied by strong winds.
On Sunday morning, he said, the Maritime Express ship departed from Karimunjawa to Jepara. High wave conditions, he said, did occur repeatedly, although not continuously.
Based on weather forecasts from the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) of Central Java Province, the sea wave height of Karimunjawa on Saturday (27/6) averaged 1.25-2.0 meters with wind speeds between 11-16 knots, while maximum waves between 2-2.5 meters.
The height of the sea waves in the north of Central Java is on average between 0.5-1.5 meters with a maximum wave height of 1.5-2 meters with wind speeds between 5-15 knots, while the weather is cloudy.
