Welcome to East Indonesia

Adventure seekers in search of something truly remote will delight in the little visited islands strewn throughout East Indonesia. Discover Flores in the Lesser Sunda Islands. Meaning “flowers” in Portuguese, this large island is laden with beaches, active volcanoes and ethos. See the enormous and fearsome komodo dragons, the world’s largest lizards at the nearby UNESCO World Heritage site Komodo National Park. The park spans across several islands including Komodo, home to one of Earth’s only pink sand beaches. This region is also highly regarded for diving.

Further east, soak in the Moluccas’ aromatic smells. Fondly called the Spice Islands, and famous for their nutmeg, cloves and mace, these lavish mountainous islands are filled with rainforests, sago plantations and rice paddies. Delight in the captivating views around the small volcanic Banda Islands. Home to the world’s richest marine life, underwater adventures await in Papua’s beautiful Raja Ampat Islands. Completely unspoilt, myriad bird species and reptiles live there. Be welcomed by Papua’s Asmat people, and witness their ceremonies, culture and way of life. Surrounded by towering peaks, the lush and fertile Baliem Valley is home to three main tribes: the Dani, Lani and Yali who dwell amidst breathtaking nature. Enrapturing isolated havens—East Indonesia.
