Raja Manta - itinerary

Inquiry

Revel in a magestic array of superb natural attractions - unspoiled coral gardens, volcanic landscapes and unexplored turquoise cays. Straddling the equator, Indonesia is a tropical island paradise made up of 14,000 islands, many of which are noted as world-class diving destinations. The stunning natural wealth of this archipelago, even when considering itsindividual attractions, is enough to make most other travel spots green with envy.

If you are looking for an idyllic tropical setting with great diving right at your doorstep and unforgettable natural wonders, a trip to Indonesia is a must. Even though there is no way for this website to touch on all that Indonesia has to offer, here is a brief glimpse at some of the highlights There is truly something for everyone. Indonesia can rightfully boast of landscapes consisting of palm-fringed tropical islands, heavenly white-sand beaches, majestic wildernesses, towering mountains, an impressive chain of volcanoes and the world’s best underwater spots.

For those with an itch to explore, you can search for the legendary “Komodo Dragon” on the island of the same name, explore the lush habitat of the “Bird of Paradise”, enjoy kayaking and bird watching in the coastal mangroves or trek through superb national parks. The Cenderawasih natural reserve offers both iridescent corals underwater and great trekking opportunities as parts of visits to fascinating traditional villages.

But if your idea of a holiday is pure relaxation, you can also just relish the wonderful warmth of the sun on the legendary beaches on Bali after a drift dive through exquisite coral gardens. Nusa Tengara and North Sulawesi are famed for their underwater landscapes and the breathtaking beauty of the remote Maluku Islands can be enjoyed from our beautiful sundeck.

And, of course, for those happiest in the underwater realm, you will not be disappointed! The uniqueness of West Papua, a largely ignored region which is home to the world’s highest and most species-rich island, will leave you with fantastic memories to last a lifetime. The reefs and beaches of the Togean Islands provide spectacular diving amidst a perfect tropical island setting. Komodo of course is considered the quintessential dive destination but you shouldn’t overlook the opportunity to discover the natural marine richness and the unusual rarity of places like the Raja Ampat Archipelago, which has been called a “Lost World”, a jewel both on land and at sea.

And this is only a brief glimpse at the country’s charms! Indonesia still has many areas waiting to be discovered. Come join us in our explorations of the hundreds of untouched islands surrounded by enchanting coral reefs that await you!

The marvelously rich culture of Indonesia boasts a unique and remarkable assortment of cultural traditions, vibrant arts and many individual ethnic groups. The rugged mountainous terrain and the fact that the country is made up of many islands, many of which remained isolated from each other, resulted in groups of people with distinct traditions and an extraordinarily diverse differentiation of languages and cultures across the archipelago.

The islanders did not in fact become “Indonesians” until 1945, when a line was drawn to incorporate the former Dutch East Indies, a group of islands bringing together an astonishingly varied collection of peoples.

Examples of this heterogeneous development can be seen in the fascinating temple complexes of Borobudur and Prambanam, or during a visit to Sumba, home to some of the most traditional cultures in East Indonesia, where you can see spectacular ikat and massive megalithic tombs. You can also visit centers of contemporary art and culture on Bali, or discover South Sulawesi and the area of Toraja, where elaborate funeral rites are a central part of their society. To experience a living example of Indonesia’s rich culture, visit the Minangkabau region of West Sumutra, known for its architecture, and where music and dance thrive. Is it any surprise then that “Unity in diversity” is Indonesia’s national motto - Photos of Raja Ampat diving - Komodo diving photos
