In our opinion, the most obvious choices for a beach break at the end of your Indonesian trip would be the islands of Bali or Lombok: places like Tembok, Lovina or Senggigi.
Our Indonesia country specialists have picked out places that will not only prove to be relaxing retreats, but where you will be spoilt for choice with the vast array of high-quality accommodation available.
Beaches in Bali
The beaches of southern Bali do not have the black sand of the other coasts of the island and they have therefore become more popular.
Our favourites are the surfing beach of Seminyak; the great value resort of Sanur, which is popular with families; and Jimbaran Bay, known for its stunning sunsets.
The east coast, on the other hand, is less developed than the south. It offers some of the best snorkelling in the area, which can be enjoyed either directly off the coast or on boat trips.
Beaches in Lombok
Forested mountains and an imposing volcano form a dramatic backdrop as you relax on beautiful beaches, sip a drink by the ocean or laze by the pool.
Venturing from the shade of your palm tree, spend a day cruising and snorkelling the coral reefs around the Gili Islands.
Seeing turtles is all but guaranteed if you are there for a couple of hours.
