Indonesia’s Island Paradise
Wending its way along the equator, the Republic of Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago. A lush kaleidoscope of over 13,000 tropical islands-some still unihabited and unnamed-stretches thousands of miles from the Maylay peninsula to New Guinea in the east.
Beautiful Bali (also known as Land of the Gods) and its sister island, Lombok, are the jewels of the Indonesian crown. Sailing between the two, you’ll discover endless white sandy beaches and swim in flawless turquoise waters teeming with manta rays, giant ocean sunfish (called Mola Mola), sea turtles, colorful clownfish, and every tropical species under the sun.
You’ll also have the chance to visit an historic temple and mingle with the friendly inhabitants of traditional island communities that welcome visitors. Even in fairly isolated areas, you are likely to find a local who speaks at least some English. Hiking trails are common and allow you to bird watch and explore panoramic vistas featuring some of the most beautiful sunsets on earth.
Every day brings a new adventure. Cruising the waters of Bali, you’ll anchor at one spectacular port of call after another-Sanur Beach, Nusa Lembongan, the Gili islands, Senggigi, Gili Nanggu and Gili Gede, Nusa Penida and Pulau Serangan. Island hopping has never been so effortless or so much fun!
Nusa Lembongan’s Mushroom Bay is named for its mushroom-colored coral and renowed as a sheltered place to swim and relax in the sun. From a distance Nusa Penida may look deserted, but its Crystal Bay is one of the most famous and popular dive and snorkeling spots in Indonesia. Gili Meno, the smallest of the three Gili islands, has its own turtle sanctuary and pools on the beach that serve as baby turtle nurseries.
Traveling with Dream Yacht Charter offers you a unique experience not available to the average tourist: Instead of following the beaten path, you visit secluded, out-of-the-way beaches, tiny unspoiled offshore islands and other scenic spots that most travelers rarely see. Your catamaran comes equipped for snorkeling and sea kayaking. And all meals are included. Your only “job” is to sit back, relax and enjoy.
