Located in the South-China Sea, about 300 kilometers off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia and about the same distance west from the northwestern-most tip of Borneo, the breathtaking and mostly still unexplored Anambas Islands are an Indonesian-owned archipelago whose natural beauty is frequently compared to that of the Maldives.
Like the Maldives, the Anambas Islands are not only mostly sheltered, but also blessed with crystal-clear cobalt-blue waters that are peppered with extensive coral gardens, swathes of virgin primary forest and wildlife, both below and above the waterline, that in many cases is unique to this area.

But unlike the Maldives, the Anambas Islands have till now remained off the radar of mass tourism. It is this that makes the Anambas Islands so unique.
Remote, yet fairly accessible, this somewhat surreal and mysterious territory is an ideal paradise destination for those keen on venturing off the beaten track. Best of all, the Anambas Islands are safe, affordable, as well as versatile.
Welcome to Amazing Anambas.
