Exploring Anambas: Guide to an Exciting Indonesian HolidayThe Anambas are a chain of remote castaway atolls in the Riau Archipelago, Indonesia, known for their pristine beaches, thriving marine life and untouched tropical forests. With that said, the area is gradually becoming one of the most sought-after hot-spots for travelers from both Southeast Asia and further afield. If you're the slightly more intrepid kind of tourist, who thrives in the few places that remain that are off the beaten track, then consider Anambas.
The exotic islands are an ideal place to go off-grid for a unique discovery and sun-soaked holiday. But how do you get to Anambas and how do you travel around this hidden idyllic paradise? Read this article for a few valuable tips to max out your Anambas exploration
Getting There, Half the FunThe easiest way to get to Anambas is by airplane, with a flight available from major Indonesian cities like Jakarta and Batam. Ok, once you arrive in Anambas, you'll have several options for getting around, including speedboat taxi, ferry shuttle, as well as a moped for your overland treks. Now, one thing to note is that motorized water transport isn't really efficient, in terms of fuel consumption to miles covered and obviously this also applies to Anambas. Additionally, all fuel the islands use is shipped in, so sharing your speedboat to lower your cost is advisable. Moped rental, however, is very cheap.
Twelve Months, Two SeasonsAnamabas's fair weather season runs from April to October. From about November, the so-called northeast monsoon starts creeping in. This is the wet, dreary and windy season and the area is generally less suitable for outdoor and beach activities during this spell. If you're planning a trip to Anambas, it's best to avoid these months. For an ideal time in a sun-kissed sanctuary unlike any place you've been before, opt for the southwest season, which runs from April to about September.
Snacking on the GoAnother little tip is that it's important to keep your energy levels up throughout your days of trills and spills water fun and nonstop exciting impressions. It can be a bit a bit tiring. That's why, in order to make the most of your once-in-a-lifetime discovery, we recommend bringing along a tasty and wholesome snack, like Eureka Snacks.
