There are few places on earth quite like Indonesia. Indonesia is a vast country of more than 17,000 volcanic islands – one filled with plenty of hiking, beaches, rainforests, underwater gems and natural habitats scattered throughout.
It is home to 20% of the world’s coral reefs, touted as some of the best dive spots in the world, and across its landscapes, yacht charter guests will find wild orangutans, Komodo dragons, exotic birds, tigers, Sumatran rhinoceros and more.
As cultural as it is beautiful and exotic, Indonesia has plenty to do for every type of yacht charter guest. Anchor your yacht, and take in the beautiful views of Bali, go surfing off of Sumbawa, or head to Komodo dive or explore. The latter of the three is not only a UNESCO World Heritage site, but it’s also a dazzling place to dive. If history excites you, explore Indonesia’s old temples and abandoned palaces, and after a long day of hiking, head to one of the country’s relaxing spas. Rumor has it they’re famous.
