In the far-flung volcanic islands of Indonesia, it’s all about uncharted adventure.
When people think of vacationing in Indonesia, Bali often comes to mind. But delve beyond this famous holiday spot and you’ll find a fantastically diverse archipelago, made up of more than 17,000 volcanic and jungle-clad islands. A stunning variety of cultures, languages, food, wildlife and landscapes entice visitors ashore, while its clear waters contain more than 20% of the world’s coral reefs – as well as a shipwreck or two. Get the sand between your toes on the unspoiled beaches of Banta Island, set eyes on the impressive crater lake at Satonda Island and check out Komodo dragons in their natural element.

Highlights of Indonesia
Come face-to-face with Komodo dragons
At the centre of the Indonesian isles is one of the few remaining places where you can see Komodo dragons in the wild – Komodo National Park. While the park is spread over three major islands (and numerous smaller ones), Rinca Island provides a prime setting to spot these fascinating dinosaur-like creatures.
Take a dip in Satonda Island’s crater lake
Take an ancient volcano, flood it with water and there you have Santonda Island, one of Indonesia’s stunning hidden gems. Lush forested hills surround an impressive crater lake that covers most of the island. Whether you opt to cool off in the lake or climb to a hilltop lookout, just be sure to bring your camera.
Explore Bali’s less-visited neighbour
Boasting many of Bali’s natural spoils but with the volumed turned down, Lombok is known for its beautiful beaches, lush forests, waterfalls and traditional Sasak villages. After snorkelling among reef teaming with fish and turtles, hike the foothills of Mt Rinjani to gorgeous waterfalls and jungle-clad hills. For a taste of rural life, tour rice paddies and traditional villages.
