A yacht charter to Indonesia is like sailing into a prehistoric world – endless tropical jungles and smoldering volcanoes cover the islands that sit like gems in jade. With a territory that is more water than land, Indonesia offers the best diving on the planet. Huge coral reefs, unseen species, giant manta rays, and incredible submerged landscapes are an otherworldly paradise. As you cruise through the islands, drop anchor and head ashore to discover your own private beach to sunbathe, have a barbecue and watch the sun set.
A breathtaking destination is the Raja Ampat National Park, which is as remote as it is magnificent. Located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, its waters are a haven for divers. You can sail here on your luxury yacht charter, exploring the 1,500 islands that boast lush jungles filled with some of the rarest and most exotic birds on the planet.
Set sail through the Komodo National Park in total luxury onboard your yacht. These magical islands are famous for its population of giant lizards. A UNESCO World Heritage site, a cruise through these volcanic islands is unlike anywhere in the world and will create lasting memories for everyone on board. The nearby Nusa Tenggara archipelago is also renowned for some of the best diving in the world.
A luxury yacht charter is an ideal way to experience the region – development here has been carefully considered to maintain the unspoiled exotic landscape, creating the unique style of luxury that is felt in wood and bamboo huts overlooking exotic landscapes. From the luxury and hedonism of Bali to the tranquil greens hills of Lombok, covered with tumbling rice paddies, in Indonesia, you will find tropical escapism and will never want to leave.
Best Time To Visit: With no real seasons, Indonesia offers perfect sailing conditions almost all year round.
Key Cruising Areas: With over 18,000 islands Indonesia is one of the world’s best cruising grounds, with endless sailing options. The huge area of Komodo National Park or 1500 islands of Raja Ampat could be explored for weeks.
Don’t Miss: Indonesia is home to the best diving and snorkelling sites in the world. With miles of reef, millions of square metres of sea and species of coral and fish that are not found anywhere else on the planet, visiting the landscapes beneath the waves is a must. The beautiful Wakatobi Resort was built after an extensive search for the ideal dive location, and created one of the world’s largest private marine reserves to offer incredible diving and snorkelling experiences.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Bali is well-known for its beautiful luxury resorts, and with this comes excellent dining. Kerobokan is one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Bali’s restaurant scene. For a sophisticated night out and a creative taste of Balinese flavours order the tasting menu at Sangsaka.
Best Local Dish: The cuisine of Indonesia is based on wonderful blends of aromatic spices. Sail to the gorgeous harbor town of Labuan Bajo and stop in at de’flo Café for a cup of organic Ruteng coffee accompanied by local delicacies or a lunch of nasi goreng.
Local Culture: The art, religion and tradition of Indonesia blend with the influences of colonists, creating an intriguing fusion. Java is the cultural heart of Indonesia, where art, dance and music fill the city. For an awe-inspiring experience of the spiritual side of south-east Asia, visit Borobudur. Visit the monument at dawn for a magical experience.
Best Beach: The beaches on the south of Lombok are some of the best in Indonesia. The whole island can be walked around in a day, giving you plenty of options to explore the pristine coastline. Gili Meno is particularly spectacular, where stunning blue corals tint the water, and a short snorkel off the beach will bring you nose to nose with turtles.
IYC recommends: Sail to the heart of the Raja Ampat islands and wake up to the sound of waves lapping below you and look out to impossible colors – bright green hills, cobalt blue skies and crystal-clear water that belies the most pristine reef on earth.
