UNTOUCHED ISLES: Raja Ampat, Indonesia

Beautiful or not, Bali’s days as “the new black” in travel are long gone—this year, travelers seeking a truly unspoiled island experience will be turning elsewhere for inspiration. At the heart of Indonesia’s Coral Triangle, the Raja Ampat archipelago is composed of 1,500 tropical islands offering the same kind of “stranded in paradise” vibe that first drew tourists to Bali decades ago.

Though the archipelago does offer more than its share of adventure (surfing, snorkeling, diving, sailing and more), Raja Ampat is also brimming with excellent places to lie on the sand doing absolutely nothing. In fact, hidden beaches are such a driving force of the area’s rising tourism industry that many resorts offer pinisi (traditional two-masted Indonesian sailboats) to help guests find the perfect sunbathing spots.
