There are 32 islands that surround the main island of Sumbawa, 24 of which predominately lay on its west and North West Coast. Moyo island, perhaps the most well known for its 6 star resort, diving and waterfalls, scenic beach and reputed to be where Lady Dianna stayed before she passed away. Surrounding islands make up the North West archipelago known for its pristine bays and pink sand. The South West corner is well known for A grade surf breaks such as Scare Reef, Super Sucks and Yo’Yo’s. This coast is protected from the prevailing south westerly trade winds making sailing and anchoring easy in pristine bays with abundant sea life and is surrounded by a Coast line built u by Volcanoes. This region has been only recently discovered by Indonesian Yacht Charter. We easily compare this regions beauty to the well known area of Flores and Komodo which have become crowded due to Tourism in general. Typically a 8 day charter allows ample time to discover both the North West region, the south west coast and circumnavigate Lombok. All our charter packages are flexible depending on your time available, interests and weather conditions, however as you can see, there are plenty of options to enjoy a safe relaxing luxury Indonesian Yacht Charter sailing Holiday Indonesia

  1. Cruising Guide to Flores & Komodo

Best Times: March to December.sailing Holiday Indonesia

 

Indonesian Yacht charter sailing Holiday Indonesia offers 12 night sailing charters to Komodo and Flores. Departing from Lombok Marina Del Ray we sail north along the top of Lombok’s North Coast overnight before arriving on the North west Coast of Sumbawa. We need to do 4 overnight sails to ensure we reach Flores and Komodo which are the two islands close to each other, known for the Komodo dragon and its diving, Flores is a Contrasting landscape of Barren Red Soil matched against Blue waters. It is known for its diving and sea life. Due to the currents that exist around the islands and the lack of wind, much time is spent motoring. While the bays are pristine, the region has become famous with many visiting yachts anchored in well projected bays. Komodo is 360 NM from Lombok so we urge our guests if they want to see a Dragon to be happy sailing at night so as to travel the distances required to arrive at the National Park. Your Charter fee will include entrance fees t the park. Diving there can be spectacular and we work in with a local Dive operation. There is a port called Lambuan Bajo with a airport and some guest elect to fly out from there and avoid the return sail thus breaking down the number charter days, Please contact us for more details as arrangements can be made. While Flores and komodo remains famous it is only because no other yacht charter companies have discovered Lombok and Komodo. sailing Holiday Indonesia
