The country's disaster management agency says 165 people were injured, and dozens of buildings were damaged. It says the possible cause of the tsunami were undersea landslides after the Krakatoa volcano erupted.
The Anak Krakatoa (Child of Krakatoa) volcano has reported increased activity in recent months.
Indonesia's geologic agency said that the volcano erupted for two minutes and 12 seconds on Friday, creating an ash cloud that rose 400 metres above the mountain.
It recommended that no-one be allowed within two kilometres of the crater.

Breaking news that at least 20 people have been killed and 165 injured as the coast around Indonesia's Sunda Strait has been hit by a tsunami believed to be related to the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano.
Thoughts with the people of Indonesia.
The disaster management agency has warned people to stay away from the coastline due to fears of another tsunami. Saturday's tsunami struck at about 21:30 local time (14:30GMT), hitting several beaches including the popular Tanjung Lesung beach resort in the west of Java island.
Deaths have been reported in the Pandeglang and Serang on Java, and Lampung province on Sumatra. Officials fear the death toll could rise further.
