Under the bluest sky imaginable, on a sugary-sanded beach, sitting in front of clear, calm waters, sun-shining, soft breeze playing in the trees a little further inland, time slows down. You become aware of a million sensations at once, the warmth of the sun on your skin, the soft echo of ice shifting in your glass, the ineffable roar of the surf, the subtle taste of salt on your lips—suddenly, stress seems incomprehensible to you. What could possibly be so bad in a world where this exists?
If this sounds like part of the perfect vacation, you’re not alone. Each year, millions of people make their way to coastlines all over the world. There is something about the interplay of land and sea that mesmerizes us, calls us back again and again. The downside, of course, is when a place becomes too popular, too available, it loses that special charm of isolation and natural beauty. High rise condos crowding over a packed beach, the yells and screams of inebriated college kids, strange smells of pre-packaged meats grilling, garbage strewn across astringent sand—this isn’t exactly what you had in mind.
However, there is a place, with perhaps the most bountiful and beautiful beaches in the world spread out over thousands of islands, where there’s no over-development, no crowding, and no stress. Pristine, untouched, and vibrant with indigenous culture, Indonesia is paradise found.
Indonesia is largest island country in the world. It consists of an archipelago that is made up of over 13,000 individual islands, home to hundreds of unique cultures and an acutely diverse populations. Among these islands are some of the most beautiful and sought-after tourist destinations in the entire world. Java, the world’s most populous island, has about half of Indonesia’s population and is home to Indonesia’s massive capital, Jakarta. Despite the diverse population, many different islands, and vastly different cultures, Indonesia has developed a unified national identity around its shared language of Indonesian and an embrace of pluralistic society.
The Indonesian Archipelago is located between the Indian and Pacific Oceans on the East to West axis, and between the landmasses of Asia and Australia to the North and South. Its unique topography is due to the dynamism of the changing landscape, which is caused by volcanic activity. Indonesia has the most volcanoes in the world, which has resulted in some pretty amazing land formations, with volcanoes rising dramatically, sometimes well over 10,000 feet, directly over the sea. © 2016 Dave G. / J.

In 2015, 10.41 million international tourists entered Indonesia, staying 7 nights in the country on average. One of the best things about visiting Indonesia is that it has so much more to offer than just beaches. Indonesia has 8 UNESCO world heritage sites, including intact ancient palaces, beautiful buddhist temples, and stunning national parks. Whether your interest is in beautiful beaches, the vast and pristine nature and forests, diverse cultural heritage, or all of the above, Indonesia has what you’re looking for.
