Indonesia Luxury Yachting Guide

From the restlessness of the sea to the tropical-vastness of the islands, Indonesia is truly stunning in size, scenery and variety. A diverse land of culture, language and tradition, a yachting vacation to this boho surf haven never seems quite long enough.

Indonesia is a country where one day you might witness a celebratory parade of such brilliant colour, sound and passion that it will leave you in awe, while the next you won’t spot a soul for miles. It is a place where Asian tradition blends with Western comforts and sprawling rice paddies give way to heart-lifting beaches and spiritual temples.

Scattered with over 17,000 islands, the world’s largest archipelago spreads its sultry mass for over 5000km between Asia and Australia. With only an estimated 6,000 being inhabited, yacht is the perfect way to explore these remote and undiscovered hideaways. There is great adventure to be found in voyaging to one of the many little-known islands where you might discover a remote village and be fortunate enough to witness ceremonies and celebrations that date back to forgotten times.

The brightest, boldest and perhaps most well-known island is Bali; a long-time holiday favourite where life centres around the pull of the ocean. This tiny slice of Indonesian perfection is home to elegant temples and picture-perfect landscapes that provide an exquisite backdrop for the top surfing beaches and market-laden streets. Sprinkled with a fine mix of party towns and subdued seaside escapes, discerning travellers can experience the thriving nightlife or simply relax in five-star luxury.

Outlying Islands
East of Bali are the collection of enchanting islands where a trip ashore from the yacht can bring the discovery of gorgeous beaches on Lombok, the world’s largest lizards on Komodo, excellent surfing locales on Flores, and grand ceremonies and intricate fabrics on Sumba.

Indonesia is blessed with some of the very best diving conditions the ocean has to offer; from spectacular underwater scenes and fascinating marine life, to invitingly warm waters and striking visibility, this Asian archipelago draws serious scuba enthusiasts from around the world. Temperatures are constantly warm in this island paradise, although cooler breaks can be found by taking a hike into Indonesia’s mountainous interior or seeking refuge in a tucked-away lodge.
