Jumadi Islands

Set in the middle of emerald green waters, with coconut palms bowing to greet you, the gentle sea breeze carrying a bird song, a handkerchief sized beach – so private that you could dare to take a skinny dip,  a pathway lined with peacock quills, over 16 varieties of birds that pay a shy visit and an old restored house that will be your home in the wonderful picturesque setting.

Jumadi Islands

An island preserved to let you enjoy the nature in her honest beauty.
