Backyard Travel, the online boutique Tour Operator specializing in unique, insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new 5-day tour – Secret Indonesian Islands – that takes travelers to a remote cluster of islands off the coast of East Kalimantan, Borneo.
This unique 5-day, 4-night tropical island trip showcases serene paradise islands, featuring an open itinerary so travelers can spend their time as they wish. Starting from Berau, the tour provides transport to and from the airport and piers, and includes all boat transfers, so travelers don’t need to organize anything other than their free time.
On Derawan Island, the main attraction is diving. It’s one of the only places in the world inhabited by stingless jellyfish, so divers and snorkelers can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming amid these beautiful creatures. There’s also the option of diving underwater caves, sea walls and fringing reefs, and joining any number of dive expeditions in the Derawan Archipelago. Travelers also have the option to spend their days ashore, taking cooking classes, beach-combing or just relaxing in the shade of coconut trees.
After two days on Derawan Island, the tour continues to Nabucco Island – another idyllic destination off the Kalimantan coastline. Diving, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming in crystal blue seas and relaxing on tranquil tropical shores – Nabucco is the perfect island for travelers who want to escape to a pristine natural environment.
“The perfect tropical holiday is one where travelers have time to relax and unwind and explore their surroundings at their own pace,” says General Manager of Backyard Travel Maeve Nolan. “This tour of Derawan and Nabucco Islands gives visitors the flexibility to tailor their tour to be as active or as laidback as they like. It’s great for travelers who want the maximum amount of freedom, while still knowing their travel arrangements and accommodation are all taken care of.”
