Do you want to have beach vacation but too bored with just the same location? As an archipelago country, Indonesia has so many beaches. Until now, many foreign tourists who want to travel to Indonesia are curious because of the beaches.
Actually, in Indonesia there are also some beaches that are not yet well-known or untouched, although those beaches have exotic and charming views. It is maybe because the beaches are hard to access or too expensive to go there.
Anyway, Authentic-Indonesia has summarized 7 exotic unspoiled beach in Indonesia and here are the list.
1. Ora Beach
Ora Beach is one of the beaches in Maluku Province and has been quite familiar to international tourists. The beauty of nature around the beach has been widely known even equated with Hawaii beaches and the Maldives. For locals, the beach is popular as Honeymoon Destination in Indonesia.
However, what you need to know is that access to the Ora Beach can only be reached by boat. This is the reason why the experience of going to this place is very expensive.
In this beach area there is only one famous resort, the Ora Beach Resort, but if we want to stay somewhere else, there are several alternatives such as in the Sawai and Saleman area which are located not too far from Ora.
Ora Beach has beautiful and soft white sand. Also, the beach protrudes into a shallow sea that contains hundreds of thousands of beautiful coral reefs and their inhabitants.
2. Red Island Beach
Pantai Pulau Merah (Red Island Beach) offers white sand beach with beautiful green hill beside it. Is is located in Banyuwangi Regency, East Java Province.
Red Island Beach is similar to Kuta Beach in Bali but the waves are more curled (up to two meters high and 300 meters long). The waves are certainly fit for beginners, amateurs and professionals surfers.
In front of the beach there is a small island called Pulau Merah. It is only about 100 meters from the beach. The blue sea of the southern coast of Banyuwangi also adds the beauty of Pulau Merah Beach.
3. Adonara Beach
If you travel to Flores, don’t forget to visit this tourist attraction. One of the exotic beaches in Indonesia is the Adonara Beach. It has a stretch of clean white sand and incredible view of the sea.

7. Green Bowl Beach
It seems hard to find a quiet beach on the island of Bali. Therefore Green Bowl Beach, which is located in Badung Regency, is like a hidden treasure that many people look for.
