If you’re looking for a place to test out your snorkelling gear, Bunaken Island is the place to be. Its surrounding bodies of water have over 58 different genera of coral to explore, with over 2000 different species of fish in the marine park. It’s a cornucopia of splendour for under the sea viewing. It’s a place you have to see to believe, not even the Scratch Map® Oceans has this kind of detailed coral depictions.
Kepulauan Seribu (Thousand Islands)
The Kepulauan Seribu is another name for the ‘Thousand Islands’ in the bay of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. These islands have become a go to weekend spot for locals and with approximately 128 different island formations, there’s much exploring and adventuring to do. Between the national parks, beaches, and resort life Thousand Islands gives all the local flavour and is a great stop if you’re having trouble deciding exactly what you want to see and do on your Indonesian adventure.
This island known for its tin production (great if you’re celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary!), kind of looks like a dream oasis. It has dozens of different beaches, meaning you could go to a different beach every hour and have a full day planned. This Indonesian gem is also home to the Dendang hot spring, Maras Mountain, and 7 other islets to explore.
If you’re a fan of large lizards, you’ve probably heard of Komodo Island. Home to the largest lizard on the planet, it also has some less deadly assets. One of the highlights is the Pantai Merah, or Pink Beach, which is exactly how it sounds. This pink sand isn’t something you’ll see anywhere else in the world, it’s worth the trip to see it first-hand. Komodo also has a national park and variety of other beaches to sunbathe on, it’s just what that cloud induced complexion needs.
