Kakaban Island is a part of the Derawan Islands in East Kalimantan, famous for a large fresh water lake full of jellyfish that have lost their stings from a lack of predators around them. Swimming among these usually dangerous creatures is quite a novel experience. A great way to spend your downtime from scuba diving (which the area is also famous for) before flying home, though it takes a bit of a trek to actually get to this lake.
