Description

Remote and blessed with stunning landscapes and seascapes, the breath-taking Anambas islands are still fairly inaccessible and mostly undiscovered. They are still not as touristic at other Indonesia islands. According to CNN, the Anambas Islands are one of Southeast Asia's most spectacular coastal spots, with good snorkelling and diving spots.

The green islands are really beautiful. Their beaches are covered with soft white sand and surrounded by clear blue seas. The water is so clear that you could see the beautiful corals from the boat. You will be amazed by the colourful underwater life whereby it is a common view of schools of fishes swim pass you. Words are unable to describe the spectacular scenes. Let the pictures show you the experiences.

Let’s island hop to a couple of islands and beaches in this 5-6 days holiday. You could snorkel, swim or even picnic at the islands, visit a fish breeding village and Temburun waterfall. One of the night we could also stayover at the Pahat Island to wait for the long-time resident, the Hawks-bills and Green turtles to come onshore to lay eggs. An adventure you will not experience in Singapore.

The streets are quiet and clean. You could take a slow walk along the walking path and enjoy the sea view.
