5 Best islands in Indonesia

Ultimate guide (April 2018)


Indonesia, Kai Kecil island, fallen palm
Kai Kecil - island with the best beaches in Indonesia. White sand, high palm trees and almost no tourists, - it's a best recipe for a tropical paradise. Keep in mind that in 1999-2003 there was a civil war between Muslims and Catholics. Now only segregation reminds about that. There are purely Muslim or purely Catholic villages. Almost all of the best beaches are located near the Catholic settlements. / read more » /

Indonesia, Bali, temple on the lake
Bali is a popular tourist island in Indonesia. However, the beaches are not so good here. The main problems are either strong waves, or a long walk to the depth. Therefore Bali beaches can be recommend for surfers only. Island is popular mainly due to a large number of cultural and natural attractions (temples, mountain lakes, etc.), as well as due to a good tourist infrastructure. Many tourists usually go to the neighboring Gili islands in search of a good beach. / read more » /

Indonesia, Lombok island, Tanjung Aan beach
Lombok is an island in Indonesia. Unlike the neighboring Bali, it has a lot of excellent beaches with white sand and palms. However, all other things are not so perfect. You will find volcanoes, mountain lakes and surfing. But definetely it can't compete with those in Bali. / read more » /

Indonesia, Biak island, Wari beach
Biak is an island in Indonesia, located just to the north of West Papua. Good beaches can be found on uninhabited islands only - far from Biak. It is best to hire a boat with an overnight stay on that small island (from US$100 per boat). In Biak itself, you will find authentic Papuan culture, waterfalls, diving and spectacular ruins of abandoned five-star resort. / read more » /

Indonesia, Gili Islands, water edge
Gili Islands - a group of islands to the east of Bali island, which are positioned as a place with excellent beaches suitable for swimming (in contrast to Bali, where beaches are very bad). In fact, local beaches are rather mediocre. The main advantage of Gili is eco-vacation, as the island has no cars or motorbikes. / read more » /

There are more chances to meet dragons in Rinca. But Komodo has more beautiful nature. My advice in to visit both islands and spend there 2 days.
