With a total of nearly 17,000 islands, Indonesia has a coastline of approximately 109,000km encompassing a total of 21,000 sq km of coral reefs. The archipelago is a haven for travellers where, far from the crowds of Java and Bali, thousands of undisturbed small islands are waiting to be discovered.
There are few airstrips, so the remote eastern Indonesian islands are mostly accessed by sea. Sail between the islands on board wooden sailing schooners, built in the tradition of the twin mast phinisi boats, and visit the various islands of the area. Whether in search of Komodo dragons or snorkelling in the colourful reefs, you will find astonishing natural beauty and a land where traditional life has changed little over the centuries.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
