Untamed Tropical Wilderness
Indonesia fascinates those who choose to visit. It is an untamed tropical wilderness and the largest island group in the world. The Indonesia archipelago offers so much coastline to explore and many miles to sail. Indonesia is huge! Hence, you will have many choices of areas to explore when on your Indonesia yacht charters vacation.
Location & Geography
The best season for an Indonesia yacht charters vacation is from May to October. The Indonesian archipelago comprises over 17,000 islands spread over ½ million square miles of ocean. These include Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Rinca, Komodo, Flores, the Banda Islands, Raja Ampat, Sulawesi and the Spice Islands. Komodo National Park and Raja Ampat are considered some of the last unspoiled areas in the world. Both have spectacular natural scenery on land and underwater.
Indonesia is the site of numerous volcanoes and frequent earthquakes of Southern Asia. Indonesia has at least 150 active volcanoes, including Krakatoa and Tambora, famous for their devastating eruptions in the 19th century.
Flora & Fauna
Lying along the equator, Indonesia has a tropical climate and supports the world’s second highest level of biodiversity (after Brazil). Its flora and fauna is a mixture of Asian and Australasian species. Large species such as the tiger, rhinoceros, orangutan, elephant, and leopard, were once abundant as far east as Bali. Recently numbers and distribution have dwindled drastically. Papua New Guinea was part of the Australian landmass and is home to a unique fauna and flora, including over 600 bird species.
Indonesia’s 80,000 kilometers of coastline are surrounded by tropical seas and it is one of the”Coral Triangle” countries. These have the world’s greatest diversity of coral reef fish, with more than 1,650 species in eastern Indonesia alone.
Indonesia’s cultural diversity is very large and colorful, with about 500 languages and dialects spoken. On your Indonesia yacht charters vacation, you will certainly want to stop at the romantic ports of Ambon, Makassar, Jakarta, and Bali. This area has a rich seafaring history dating back to the spice trade and beyond. If you want sanctuary, see Flores and Irian Jaya with their thousands of undisturbed remote and tiny virgin islands. These will seem very distant from the busy tourist crowds that travel to Java and Bali.
The entire region offers a truly rich diversity of ancient temples, music that ranges from the traditional to modern pop. Live music, dances, and rituals are the ways of daily life and vary from island to island. Yet everywhere, visitors are welcomed by the warmth of the Indonesian people and their gracious innate friendliness.
