The Anambas Islands: Indonesia’s tropical hideaways, just a hop from Singapore

The Anambas Islands offer the perfect tropical escape without the kilometres a journey to Indonesia-proper would entail. This small but perfectly formed archipelago, clustered in the South China Sea, is accessible via a short ferry ride and private seaplane from Singapore. The majority of its 250 islets are uninhabited, and those with a permanent population remain largely unspoilt; palm-fringed beaches, lush jungle and sparkling blue waters beg you to explore. 

Thanks to its position amidst a protected marine area, the Anambas Islands are ideal for snorkelling and diving. Don your wetsuit and flippers to explore the ocean depths and the technicoloured marine life, which calls this place home. Alternatively, try your hand at some motor-free water sports – surf, paddleboard or kayak until your heart’s content. On dry land, you can take to the hiking trails by foot, spotting the diverse wildlife that creeps, climbs and soars around the forests as you go. 

For a combined city and beach break, why not top or tail your stay on the Anambas Islands with a night or two in Singapore? This modern city-cum-country offers a wonderfully cosmopolitan contrast to the far-flung islands. Visit the iconic Gardens by the Bay, wander around the impressive museums or enjoy the vivid blooms in the botanical gardens.
