Remote Island Vacation
The castaway will have to build his/her own shelter using what can be found on the island. However, there is also the possibility of enjoying a more comfortable experience with a tent, camping gas, kitchen equipment, etc
On this remote island the castaway will eat and drink whatever nature provides. On this secluded island there are a variety of coconuts, crabs, hermits and small fish on the reef. If required Docastaway can supply a spear gun for underwater fishing and fishing tackle. For drinking there are coconuts and any rain water that the castaway collects – usually there is abundant rain – however, the castaway can always take provisions to the island and simply enjoy a vacation on their remote island.
Amparo Island is approximately 20 Km away from the nearest coast. There are chances of seeing boats light in the distance, especially at night
The feeling of isolation at this remote island vacation is generally HIGH
Contact with outside world
For this experience there is a choice of the following two options:
1 – WITH A GUARD
A Docastaway guard will guard the only entrance to the island so as to be able to assure that the castaway won’t be bothered by fishermen while enjoying the stay on the rest of the secluded island. In this mode the docastaway won’t coincide with the guard throughout the whole stay unless he/she should go to visit him at the entrance. There is also the advantage of immediate help in case of emergency
2 – WITHOUT A GUARD
In the case of not having a guard at the entrance our team will stand by for the client at the nearest village 24/7. There is the possibility of a fisherman landing on the beach in order to eat or sleep. This desert island is private and only the castaway has the right to be there so, therefore, the fisherman can be asked to abandon the island
The castaway will have a walkie talkie + a cell phone. In case of emergency we would be able to reach the island in 3 hours. In case the client need water, food or new tools our team will go to the remote island to provide the items. In case the castaway get’s to be alone or just cannot handle it, our team can go fishing with him in a fisherman boat.
On this isolated island there are not dangerous animals. There are some small and harmless pyton snakes and previous clients have spotted centipides. In the sea there are some harmless blacktip sharks who are scared of humans. Only stepping on a stingrays with bearfoot could be a problem if you are alergic to its venom. Therefore we recommend to walk on the water with shoes. However we have never heard of anyone having a problem with stingrays so far. Only swimming could be a threat as the currents could be strong if you go far away.
What we love
High level of isolation at a good price
The beauty of the island’s beaches
Quick and easy access
How to reach
This isolated island is located in a remote part of Indonesia. First the client would need to fly to Jakarta (flight booked by them but we will assist during the process). Once in Jakarta they will need to take a domestic flight to a remote area in Indonesia (thi flight will be booked by us). Arrival at the local airport, our team will welcome the client and bring him by private car to the harbour where a boat will be ready to sail to the island. The client will probably need to overnight in Jakarta on the first day but on the next day it’s possible to reach the island in the evening and start enjoy the perfect getaway.

Previous Clients on this island
Amparo is one of our most popular remote island getaways. Since 2013 many clients have choosen this secluded island vacation due to its easy and quick access. Despite our clients are normally keen of keeping their own privacy. Some of them were happy to share their photos or videos with us. Reikko Hori, the first of our castaways, spent 19 days here, surviving only with what nature provided, whose experience became famous all around the world. You can find more previous castaways at Amparo on our Blog and also on our Facebook page.
*Our price is valid for 2 people travelling to the island and staying at least 9 nights. If someone go alone (SOLO) he/she would need to assume most of the cost of the second person. For SOLO castaway we recommend other islands we have available which are more economic.
The price per person and per night on this island is 170 Euros.
For a experience of 5 nights for 2 people the cost would be around 1500 Euros per person.
For a experience of 5 nights alone (SOLO) the cost would be around 2200 Euros per person.
(we do not recommend to stay for less than 5 days on the island)
Bear in mind
This remote island is ideal for solo female castaways
Due to the strong tides it is not ideal for swimming outside of the reef
This island is perfect for lovers of unending, white, sandy beaches
