Indonesia yacht charter
Indonesia is still a rather new area for yachts to charter. However, having been a very popular tourist spot for many years now, many yachting professionals are confident this area is next on the radar.
Indonesia is a sprawling country made up of over 17,000 islands spanning an area of 735,358 sq miles making it an ideal cruising ground. Some, of course, are more inhabited than others but each offers something new, exotic and exciting to its visitors.
One day you could be visiting the temples of Bali and the next cruising through the Ring of Fire, or past steep rainforest cliffs with the jungle canopy looming overhead fringed by pristine beaches in the Raja Ampat islands off West Papua.
One of Indonesia’s biggest selling points is the diving, with Raja Ampat in particular ranking at the top of many people’s world best dive sites. The area is blessed with year round warm temperatures and crystal clear waters, and the Raja Ampat archipelago boasts the greatest marine biodiversity on Earth – close to 550 species of coral and more than 1,300 species of fish have been recorded here. Many of the islands are uninhabited allowing any explorer to enjoy an undisturbed paradise above or below the water.
Jakarta or Bali are the most accessible airports from international flights, and from here you can take an internal flight to your start point. The best way to connect to your yacht if she is moored in one of the more remote islands is via private jet.
