Asia Pacific Superyachts (APS Indonesia) has announced that Bali, Indonesia has entered Travel+Leisure magazine’s ‘World’s Best Award (WBA) Hall of Fame’ after being voted onto ‘The Best Islands in the World’ list consecutively for the past 10 years.
‘The Best Islands in the World’ is rated by reader experiences – sharing their opinions on islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value.
When announcing the honours, the APS Indonesia agency agreed that “Bali continues to attract tourists and both sail and motor yachts from all over the world. This is due to its rather eclectic mix of beautiful beaches, stunning forests and active volcanoes, all existing alongside the vibrant traditional culture, charming hospitality and delicious cuisine for which the island is famous.”
Captains Jimmy Blee and Thomas Taatjes, APS Indonesia agency directors, further commented, “Our superyacht clients are treated to a magnificent sight when rounding the north eastern tip of Bali, the classic volcano cone-shaped Mt. Agung, every sailor’s welcome to the Island of the Gods.”
Among the 2019 list of ‘The Best Islands in the World’ was Santorini, Galápagos Islands and the Maldives, with Bali awarded third place.
