The astonishing and incomparable Indonesia is the largest archipelago nation in the world with over 17,000 tropical islands fringed with pristine white sandy beaches, including the world’s "best island destinations” of Bali and Borneo (the latter now known as Kalimantan). Straddling the equator between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans and stretching from Thailand to Australia, Indonesia has a total population of more than 253 million people from more than 200 ethnic groups. The Capitol Jakarta is a bustling city of over 10 million people, but it is perhaps the island resorts, with their lush rainforests and unique wildlife (including the Orang Utan and Komodo dragon), the beaches and ocean surf, the ancient temples and up to the minute spas, and the friendly culture and laid back living that Indonesia is best famed for.
With nearly 100,000 km of coastline and a warm tropical climate Indonesia is basically a year-round surf destination. This ultimate surfer's paradise has literally thousands of islands to explore (including 6000 that are uninhabited). The main surf beaches are located on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Timor, and topping the bill with its glut of world class surf spots and some awesome breaks is the beautiful island of Bali..the epicentre of Indonesian surfing.
Because Indonesia is one of the premier surfing and jewellery making destinations of the world it is no surprise that their skilled crafts-people produce some of the most authentic surf jewellery in the world, with quality designs in leather, coconut, wood and metal featuring Pacific Ocean designs blended with typical Balinese intricacy.
