As a country with a lot of beautiful places, Indonesia has more than enough to offer to the world. This time, Jebraw, Naya, and the crew of Jalan2Men will take you to one of Indonesia's outermost islands which is often referred to as the most exotic place in the country, namely Anambas!
Anambas Islands is located at the northern part of Sumatera and is bordered by several neighboring countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. It is a regency in the province of Riau which consists of several islands. The capital of Anambas Islands is Tarempa.
To complete your Anambas Islands journey, Jalan2Men suggests you to visit Nongkat Island. This island has a natural beauty that is far from inferior to other beach destinations in Indonesia. Not only it is able to spoil tourists with its natural beauty, but also provides a comfortable place to stay.
When you are visiting Anambas, don't forget to visit Temburun Waterfall, which is often referred to as a multi-layered waterfall. The location is in the eastern part of Tarempa Island. Temburun Waterfall offers you more than beautiful panoramas, due to its position that faces directly to the sea. Because of that, you can get two views at once.
Because it has many islands, Anambas can be accessed by sea and air. Specifically for airplanes, Anambas Islands has 2 airports to choose from, depending on the island you wish to go to.
Start your journey by departing to Hang Nadim Airport, Batam, then continue the trip with Wings Air to Letung Airport at Jemaja.
If you want to go to Matak Island, you can fly with Xpress Air from Batam or Tanjung Pinang. The schedule from and to Matak Island is only available one flight per day with an alternating destination of Batam or Tanjung Pinang. So pay attention closely to the flight schedule and availability. As for the trip to Nongkat, you can hop on a car to a jetty and take a 30-minutes speed boat trip with the fee of Rp250.000/boat.
