7D6N Singapore to
Badas Islands, Indonesia

 
 

The Badas Islands are a cluster of islands 230 nautical miles from Singapore, located far east of Singapore in the midst of South China Sea. The archipelago of Badas Islands is so remote that it is still uncharted on our navigation system and inaccessible to most tourists, as there are no ferries that travel there. When we first visited in 2017, locals excitedly mentioned that we were the first foreigners they have welcomed to their islands. 

Due to the lack of tourists, the Badas Islands boast of abundant marine life and untouched, colourful corals, which literally feels like you're diving in a massive aquarium with 20 metres visibility. We highly recommend this itinerary as we have never experienced such amazing underwater scenery in our lifetime.
