Bali Yacht Vacations: Book Your Luxury Yacht Charter Bali

The “Island of the Gods” is worthy of all the praise that is so often heaped upon it. There are few places in the world that have remained so completely true to their culture in the face of such an influx of tourists. Having said that, even today you don’t have to go far off the beaten track to find timelessly traditional villages and tropical valleys rife with jungle vegetation.

Cruises starting in Bali would cruise past Lombok, along Sumbawa & Flores to Komodo National Park.


Yacht Charters Bali


Bali is an island of great contrasts with a heady reputation for spiritual pursuits, natural wonders and wild nightlife. The active volcano Mount Batur rises from the heart of the island, shrouded by dense rainforest that reaches up towards the volcanic black sand beaches of Bali’s undeveloped northern coastline.

In Bali, visitors can lose themselves in the booming nightlife of Kuta, shop in trendy Seminyak or surf perfect waves on the southern beaches. There are family-friendly sights in Sanur and lavish villas in Uluwatu, and then there’s the spiritual capital of Ubud, where the soul of the island is perhaps most powerfully felt.

Off the southern tip of Bali, Nusa Lembongan is a tiny, mellow island surrounded by great surf breaks and clear turquoise water ideal for snorkelling, not to mention a myriad of low-key beach bars and boutique hotels. Bali is a great tropical location for a yacht trip.

Bali is the perfect place to start your adventures in Indonesia before travelling further afield for your luxury private yacht charter in Indonesia. Most international flights arrive into Bali, and from here, you can explore sights on land before catching an internal flight to Komodo, Sumbawa, Lombok or Sumba.

One of the wonderful things about the reefs surrounding the Komodo region is that around 60% of its dive sites are also suitable for snorkelling with their shallow, fringing reefs. Surfers can aim for the surrounding islands of Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba and Rote for perfect waves. Exploring Bali and the surrounding islands by yacht will allow you to visit areas that aren’t commonly seen by most visitors.

The coral triangle’s currents attract schooling fish in large numbers, while pinnacles, walls and gardens are heaven for drift-dive enthusiasts. Divers and snorkelers alike can expect a wide variety of topographies and magnificent marine encounters. When you travel by yacht, you will have ample opportunity to dive, snorkel and swim with the fish.



Bali and the surrounding islands in Indonesia are best visited between April and October during the dry season of the year. You can either opt for a one-way yacht cruise starting in Bali and finishing in Komodo, or fly from Bali to Lombok (Praya airport), Sumbawa (Bima) or Moyo (Sumbawa Besar airport) for a shorter one-way itinerary.
