Carita is located in Banten, around 4 hours from Jakarta. The beach is not as good as Bali or Lombok, but this got me reminiscing about my childhood memories. When I was a kid, most Jakartans family spent their summer vacation here (or Anyer), especially circa 1990 to 2000. Well maybe because it's the nearest one from Jakarta. Nowadays Carita is no longer the 'it' beach for vacation. Since Carita is part of Banten (not West Java anymore) the province doesn't provide good infrastructure and the road was terrible, it's bumpy all the way.

Well last month, I went there for 3 days and 2 nights trip along with my husband, Hanna and Arif. The private villa was awesome, and yes we got our own swimming pool, so no need to worry if somebody is trying to ruin our holiday. Anyway it was my trip during pregnancy, hope our baby likes it.
