Serbat Beach, Dullah, Kei Kecil

Serbat Beach, Dullah, Kei Kecil

Dullah_ton

The third largest island in the Kei archipelago, Dullah is where the islands’ original capital, Tual is located. Like neighbouring Kei Kecil, it is a flat, largely deforested island whose main attractions are its beaches are surrounding off-shore islands. However, as it offers just one beachside place to stay, it tends to be ignored by many visitors. Still, it can easily be explored in a day or two out of Tual.

Dullah Village

On the way to Difur, it’s worth stopping at the village of Dullah to see its kora-kora “war” canoes housed in sheds right by the side of the road. Also from Dullah village, speedboats cross fairly frequently to the village of Dullah Laut on the island of the same name.

The stunning white sand beaches of Kei Islands!
Let me introduce… Ngur Bloat and Ohoidertawun..

Ngur means Pasir and Bloat means Panjang.
Pantai Pasir Panjang (Ngur Bloat) is soooo amazing. Lonely Planet describes it as “3 km of white sand so powdery it feels like flour”. So lovely.. so ‘white’.. so beautiful : )

We slept on the beach that night. With thousands of stars looking after us from up above. Wow!
The morning sunshine woke us up the next morning. Hahaa.. it was my first time sleeping on the beach till morning : )

Ohoidertawun. This beach is also an amazing one. White sand everywhere..

The small island of Ambon was the centre of Dutch administration in Maluku, and today bustling Ambon city remains the main city of majority Christian southern Maluku province, even though a new provincial capital has been designated on Seram in 2013. Ambon has a mixed Christian-Muslim population and suffered from horrible communal violence between 1999-2002. Now that peace has returned, its excellent transport connections and facilities once again make it the common gateway to Maluku, and its colonial forts, green hills and pleasant beaches can also make it a worthy destination in its own right.

The island is made up by two “peninsulas”, which are almost separate islands, joined by a narrow isthmus. Leitimur, the smaller, more densly populated half is majority Christian, and is also where Kota Ambon, Maluku’s capital is situated. Leihitu, the larger peninsula is more sparsely populated and has a majority Muslim population. Due to its relative remoteness from Kota Ambon it recieves fewer visitors and has preserved its traditional culture better. While many visitors only ever see the city itself, they are missing the best of Pulau Ambon. Everyone should visit the beautiful rural parts of the island, and those with a few days to spare should also make an effort to visit the delightful, nearby Lease Islands: Haruku makes an interesting day-trip, Saparua is the best relaxing getaway for an overnight stay, while tiny, unspoilt Nusalaut is totally off the beaten track. With a week or so extra time, you could also consider visiting the large island of Seram.

Ora-Beach-Saleman--800

As the country with the second longest coastline in the world, Indonesia is home to countless beautiful beaches, and has won numerous awards for such. One of these beaches is Ora Beach, carefully hidden away on the North Coast of Seram Island. An exotic and extremely remote destination, Ora beach is perfect for Eco-travellers and honeymooners alike. A row of cozy, wooden cottages line the sandy, white beaches, overlooking the crystal clear waters of Sawai Bay, and with a backdrop of limestone cliffs and majestic mountains, covered in lush, tropical greenery. Seram island is most famous for its abundant bird life. Of 117 species found on the island, 14 are endemic to Seram.

Seram is the largest island in the Maluku province, measuring approximately 16,000 square kilometers, yet is home to a population of only about 170,000. It lies just north of the smaller and more historically renowned island of Ambon. Maluku Province is located between Indonesia’s larger islands of Sulawesi and Papua. Seram’s geographic location amidst several tectonic plates, gives the island a remarkably complex terrain. A central mountain range runs across the island, its highest mountain, Gunung Binaya, peaking at just over 3,000 meters. The island is covered mostly in dense, tropical rain forests, bordered on one side by towering cliffs and the other by sandy white beaches, and finally encircled by a crystal blue sea.
