5 Islands in Indonesia for a Dreamy Honeymoon
Paris or Maldives for your honeymoon? That’s too cliche! How about spending your honeymoon discovering an island in Indonesia?
Indonesia is a cluster of 17,000 islands, each one proving to be unique, mesmerising and beautiful. Picturesque beaches are a given but you will also get to spot volcanoes (active and dormant), hidden waterfalls and hot springs, and much more! Check out 5 Indonesian islands that you can consider for your honeymoon:
It was the centre of powerful Hindu-Buddhist empires, the Islamic sultanates, and the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies. From the glorious wonders of nature to the enthralling man-made landscapes, Java has much to offer for newly married couples to enjoy. Java is also home to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia (no, Bali was never and is not the capital).
When you think of Indonesia, Bali is obviously the first thing that comes to mind. Undoubtedly, it is blessed with gorgeous sunny beaches, lush green terrains and architectural beauties that perfectly preserve the local culture and heritage.
Sumatra is the largest island of Indonesia and has a wide range of plant and animal species. For the couple who loves to live life on edge and enjoy the surge of adrenaline that comes from indulging in an adventure on this island.
If you want to stay away from the urban life and stick to the countryside and rural appeal of Indonesia, make sure to pay a visit to Lombok. South Lombok surfing is considered some of the best in the world. What most people are unaware of is that the island is known for its pearls. You can take a tour to know more about the pearl cultivation and even purchase some pearl items.
Have you ever wished for catching a glimpse of a dragon? Komodo is home to the largest lizard on Earth, the Komodo dragon. The stunning island also has a beach with “pink” sand, one of only seven in the world. The sand appears pink because it is a mixture of white sand combined with red sand, formed from pieces of Foraminifera. You wouldn’t want to miss that!
