No other holiday destination in Indonesia has managed to surpass Bali in terms of popularity. Indonesians love it and foreigners obsess over it. As the center of the Indonesian tourism industry, Bali is the perfect gateway to access Indonesia’s over 18,000 islands. Bali’s longstanding reputation as “Island of the Gods” has never waned. If anything, the island continues to thrive with new culinary, wellness and shopping hotspots cropping up at a frantic pace.
Nusa Lembongan day trip
The closest destination for a leisure day-cruise is Nusa Lembongan with so much fun onboard and in the water. Embarking from Serangan harbor, after a 2 hours cruise, Salila anchors in front of Lembongan island where divers and snorkelers guided by our dive crew can explore the marine life around the big coral boomies. Surfers will have the chance to ride on Lembongan’s surfs and those who seek for more fun can ride the banana boat around the bay, before relaxing with drinks and selected canapés on the sundeck on the way back.
Lombok and the Gili Islands
For extended stay onboard, cruising to Lombok and the Gili Islands provides a nice leisure trip spiced with water activities and cultural land tours. Lombok is famous for its hand-made pottery and pristine landscapes.Heading towards the NW corner of Lombok, three small islands line up: Gili Air, Gili Trawangan and Gili Meno surrounded by beautiful reefs provide great place for diving and snorkeling. Beachcombers can wander around the white sand beaches and sunbath by the turquoise sea. To explore the islands, horse-cart is the unique way of transport on land or just ride a bicycle around and enjoy the light breeze.
Over the recent years, the Komodo islands in East Nusa Tenggara have gradually attracted a growing number of visitors. Solitary adventurers flock to this region in search of the kind of experience that can only be found in remote locations. In Komodo’s case, its relative lack of infrastructure is a blessing in disguise. It is blessed with hundreds of pristine, secluded beaches. The waters are so clear you can literally see through to the bottom.
The Komodo National Park is a designated World Heritage Site and voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders. It is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores. During trekking in Komodo or Rinca islands, park rangers will escort your hike up the hills where you will get to spot wild boars, water buffalos and of course, the Komodo dragon.
Located in East Nusa Tenggara, Flores is an up-and-coming travel destination for those seeking an island getaway without the cliché tourist traps. The island has a volcanic topography, which divides it into fascinating valleys and ridges that were impenetrable until recent years. On the bright side, this has helped preserved the island’s many indigenous tribes and their cultural heritage. Flores is the perfect destination for nature lovers and culture seekers alike.
One of the most notable highlights is definitely the tri-colored Mt. Kelimutu. This site is considered sacred by the local people due to the many myths surrounding its formation. Over the years, the three crater lakes have often changed color. It’s a 30 minute, 15 kilometers trek up to the peak where you can witness the sunrise, which is the best time for you to soak in the view. The Kelimutu area is also a good place where you can see traditional houses, dances and local textiles. East Nusa Tenggara is one of the best producers of local ikat and each district in Flores usually has its own unique motif.
When Christopher Columbus set sail in the 15th Century, it was not the Americans that he had hoped to find. Columbus, like many other European explorers, went after the promise of spice to be found in the Moluccas, now more commonly referred to as Maluku. Located in the eastern deep seas of the Indonesian archipelago, these islands were the sole producers of nutmeg, clove and other precious spices that fetched their weight in gold in Medieval Europe.
As the capital of Maluku, Ambon possesses a rich and diverse natural and cultural heritage. It is located North of the Banda Sea, off the Southwest coast of the much larger Seram Island.
The Banda Sea is one of Indonesia’s deepest oceans at over 6500 m below sea level. In the center lies a string of small volcanic islands surrounded by beautiful coral reefs and inhabited by a large variety of marine life. Relatively untapped, this area is a haven for divers.
To put it bluntly, Raja Ampat is not only Indonesia’s but the world’s marine treasure trove. Raja Ampat is often called the last paradise on earth and became well known for its spectacular, sometimes bizarre biodiversity, breath-taking islands and natural resources. Thousands of bigger and smaller islands form its spectacular scenery surrounded by crystal clear water. The high mountains and lush tropical jungles of Papua give home to rare birds and flowers, clear rivers and pristine cultures.
Raja Ampat is located in West Papua, the eastern part of Indonesia, a territory dominated by four main islands, namely Waigeo, Salawati, Misool and Batanta. The wealth of marine biodiversity in this region is simply astounding, attracting researchers, conservationists and divers alike.
In addition to the fabulous setting, as being part of the coral triangle, the Raja Ampat reefs are the richest in – almost 1300 fish and 500 coral – species among which numerous are endemic in the region. Without doubt, these colorful virgin reefs are favored by divers and underwater photographers but the sparkling white sandy beaches and azure blue bays provide peaceful and undisturbed time for snorkeling and other water activities as well.
The suggested best time to visit Raja Ampat is during wet season from October until March.
An ecological experience of diversity you will not forget if you join us to follow the great 19th Century naturalist, Alfred Russel Wallace’s travels where his observations led to develop a theory about how species of plants and animals gradually change through a process known as natural selection and had his malarial vision of the Evolution of species.
The wallace line runs through the fascinating cultures and spectacular landscapes of North Maluku, Temate, North Sulawesi and Borneo. This itinerary combines both the fabled Raja Ampats as well as the volcanic’ spice Island’ of Ternate and the trip ends in North Sulawesi.
The Raja Ampats lie at the heart of the Coral Triangle, which is defined as a region of by far the greatest marine-species diversity than anywhere else on earth.
Ternate is an island in the Maluku Islands of eastern Indonesia. It was the center of the powerful former Sultunate of Ternate and the biggest clove producer.
The natural wonders of North Sulawesi make it well suited to land and underwater adventures. We engage with scuba diving along walls of fishes and underwater volcanoes to rarely seen critters. Land-based activities focus on rain forest hiking in Tangkoko Nature Reserve.
Located in the east coast of Lesser Sunda Islands, East Nusa Tenggara faces the Indian Ocean in the south and Flores Sea in the North. The waters surrounding Komodo Islands also countains rich marine biodiversity. Komodo Islands is also a part of the Coral Triangle, which countains one of the richest marine biodiversity on earth. One of the world’s best diving spots and excellent visibility of underwater life make snorkelling a real treat. And it has been included into the controversial New 7 Wonders of Nature List.
Raja Ampat is an archipelago of over 1,500 small islands located off the northwest tip of New Guinea in Indonesia’s West Papua province. Raja Ampat Islands are truly beautiful paradise and one of the best enticing scuba diving destination in the world with the largest marine park, the water in this region are unbeatable and the spectacular marine landscape in Indonesia. Sailing through Raja Ampat promises a lifetime experience you won’t forget.
