You know a place is really untouched when there isn’t even an internet connection! These islands are a paradise away from emails, meetings, and deadlines. This really is the perfect place to power down and take a break from life and all its stresses.
When left to its own resources nature really does do some pretty amazing things. Peucang is a perfect example. With its thick green canopies home to deer, boar and even the exotic one-horned rhino, this island is like stepping into a pre-industrialised Indo.
With Bora Bora style bungalow accommodation built over crystal clear waters rich in coral and marine life, Ora beach really is everything a tropical paradise should be, and more.
This lesser-known Gili has serenity in spades with a peace and quiet that’s quite unmatched. This tiny island only has one resort and restaurant taking away the stress associated with making even the tiniest of life decisions. This is the ideal place to really switch off and live a little slower.
Weh Island, Aceh
With some of the most beautiful beaches in the area, this island is definitely worth the journey. Just make sure to time your ferry as arriving on a whim will lead to a long wait between boats. But with a bit of planning this untouched wonderland is an easy 45-minute boat ride away.
