Visit the World’s Largest archipelago…Indonesia!
Don’t miss out as ISLA & Lifeguards Without Borders embark on their 1st project in Indonesia! With thousands of square miles of coastline, the splendors of Indonesia are as many as its countless islands.
We’ll arrive and discover Jakarta, a huge sprawling metropolis and Indonesia’s capital located on the northern coast of Java, where the team will meet up. The following morning, we boarding a public bus and we’ll be meeting our friends from Surf Lifesaving Pangandaran, who will be waiting to pick us up from the Pangandaran Beach bus stop. During the bus ride, the ISLA team will be preparing for our 3-day ISLA Basic Open Water Course.
In Pangandaran we’ll meet our ISLA course participants and learn about Indonesia’s beaches, operational sites and lifeguarding resources to share ideas and techniques. Between training courses in Pangandaran, we’ll be sure to wander the fine sand beaches and journey through this remote town of beach resorts and lush natural park wonders.
On our final day in Pangandaran, the team will take some time to explore the best kept secret of Pangandaran, “a piece of heaven on earth” known as Green Canyon.
You will meet lifelong friends, experience the beauty of Indonesia, and have the adventure of a life-time!
