The Secret Life of Borneo
Rumour has it that Lankayan in Borneo is not a superyacht destination
Some consider the passage there too risky, with no reliable charts; others say that the locals are less than trustworthy. But as one of our favourite captains regularly assures guests, reality couldn’t be further from the rumour. For an experienced captain, navigating is a cinch and as for the local people, well they couldn’t be friendlier or more charming.
Discover charming local cultures
Places like Lankayan offer so much more than sun, sea and sand. For families it can be as much about learning as relaxing. Being welcomed into the local culture is so much more than tourism.
Get up close and personal with a disappearing species
And of course, seeing the island’s orangutans up close is an experience that cannot be matched. Orangutans are considered some of the most intelligent primates and as an endangered species are an increasingly rare sight found only in Borneo and Sumatra.
Be the envy of everyone
The best bit of all is the feeling of discovery. Chancing upon a place that others fear to go makes it your own private, tropical paradise. It is a rare luxury indeed to experience one of the world’s best secrets from the comfort of a yacht, knowing you’ll be the only one of your friends to have done so.
