Jack Tar Superyacht Charter Destination – Bali and Lombok

Lombok-Island

Lombok Island

The Indonesian island of Bali and its neighbour Lombok are attracting more superyachts to visit and is this week destination focus from Jack Tar.

Bali TempleBoth islands are very similar though Bali is the more livelier of the two if its night life and entertainment that you are seeking. But the beauty of a superyacht is that when you tire of one island you just move on to the next. The only problem you will have is trying to see everything and juggling your time to make sure you experience the best of both!

The islands are amongst the most popular tourist destinations Rice-Paddy-Terraces-in-Bali-Indonesiain the world with travelers arriving to enjoy the islands for many different reason. Most of the the coastline is fringed with beaches that are clean and safe but the island is much more than just a beach holiday. Venture inland and discover the amazing flora and fauna. Exotic plants to many of us such as hibiscus, bougainvillea, jasmine, water lilies, magnolia, frangipani and orchids are found in many front yards and gardens. Take time to wander through the forests, climb a volcano (some are still active), paddle through mangrove swamps, stand under a waterfall and learn about the rice terraces.

The rich culture of the islands is very important to its people and they are only to pleased to help you understand what it means to them. It seems that there is a temple on every corner and many are open to the public with guides that will not only point out the beautiful architecture but also explain the religion and history.

Another big attraction to Bali and Lombok is its waters and the superb diving that they provide. Ghostly wrecks, exotic fish and colourful coral make this one of the worlds most popular dive destinations. Scientists have found the prehistoric Coelacanth fish, a “living fossil” fish, predating the dinosaurs by some 400 million years but we cannot guarantee that you will see one of these!
