This triad of islands includes Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan. These destinations have taken over the fame and admiration of Bali by providing visitors with a ton of natural beauty. The islands are perfect for diving, snorkelling and water sports. More adventurous tourists swear by the cliff diving experience which is said to be the best way to experience the island. Seeing these islands from an aerial perspective allows you to take in the incredible natural formations of the island which leaves an indelible memory to anyone who witnesses it.
A place that requires no introduction. From backpackers to luxury travellers, Bali has made its name as the destination for tropical paradise seekers. Bali is known as the Land of the Gods and enchants visitors with its natural beauty –from looming volcanoes to lush terraced rice fields. A lot of people go to Bali to experience surfing. Undoubtedly, the strong Bali current has brought many surf enthusiasts to its shores hoping to conquer these famous beaches. The Balinese culture is also a major deciding factor when choosing between the many destinations in Southeast Asia that offer similar experiences.
Lombok is a place for those who want to enjoy the offerings of Bali without the herd of tourists. It is home to Indonesia’s second-largest volcanic peak, Mount Rinjani and an array of island experiences that are comparable to or better than what you find in Bali. As it is a newer destination, most of Lombok is untouched. This allows visitors to experience the raw natural offerings of the island while exploring in quiet luxury.
Flores stands out for its uniqueness, scenic beauty, and friendly people. Despite the fact that Flores is predominantly Catholic, mysticism, spirits, and spiritual beliefs continue to have a strong influence on daily life. The mystical volcano Kelimutu, the ancient Komodo dragons, stunning traditional villages where dated cultures are still alive today, a diverse underwater world and uninhabited beaches, traditional markets, and picturesque fishing villages are among Flores’ sights and highlights.
Located in the southeast of Sumatra, Belitung Island is an island destination for tourists looking to experience the unbridled force of nature Indonesia has to offer. It’s difficult not to be captivated by its pristine beaches, blue waters, and natural granite rock structures. This island is now determined to become one of the world’s top Geoparks. A Global Geopark is a UNESCO-designated area that contains natural sites of special geological significance and is intended to be preserved because of its heritage.
