What are the most popular yacht holidays in Indonesia?
There are two island groups in Indonesia that are worthy of any yacht charter holiday. These islands are home to many uninhabited isles, remote villages, secret beaches, and hidden coves. Because of their remoteness, you will find fewer crowds and fewer tourists, seemingly leaving the seas and beaches all to yourself. In the summer, the most popular yachting destination in Indonesia is the Komodo National Park. In the winter season or months of November to February, the popular destination is Raja Ampat.
A preserved and protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Komodo National Park, and its protected group of islands are among the world's most biodiverse destinations. With a world of water sports activities like scuba diving, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and a world of inland itineraries, you can sail through its islands and explore for days and days on end. You can spot the world's largest lizard on Komodo Island, the Komodo, casually lazing on the beach and jungles. In Pantai Merah, you can lay all day on the famous pink beach, merely marveling at the natural beauty that surrounds. Found in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, Komodo National Park is to the east of Denpasar, Bali, approximately 744 km away, making it a far-flung yachting destination offering peace, tranquility, and an entirely different world to explore.
Raja Ampat is an even more remote yachting destination, where it seems like the tropical paradise was created just for you. With crystal clear waters, snorkeling's mere activity introduces you to the most diverse marine life on Earth. With 1,500 small islands, you can find 550 species of corals, more than a thousand different fish species, and a vibrant, healthy reef system that's out of this world. Located in the Coral Triangle, between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, its marine biodiversity is unrivaled by any other destination in the world. Offering tropical rainforests, volcanic mountains, and some of the friendliest locals you will ever meet, Raja Ampat offers a remote, secluded cruising destination that will make you feel like you're the only people on Earth in this tropical paradise.
