KEI ISLAND TOUR
4 days - 3 nights
The Kei Islands belong to a group of islands situated south east of Ambon and Seram; including Kei Besar, Kei Kecil, Tanimbar Kei, Kei Dulah, Dulah Laut, Kur, Taam and Tayandu.
The most popular island is Kei Kecil, which is connected by a bridge to the neighboring island of Dullah. The bridge also connects the twin towns of Tual and Langgur. The Kei Islands have the most beautiful beaches of whole Indonesia with a great diversity of marine life with many different sea turtle species and exotic fish types. Pasir Panjang on Kei Kecil is the most famous beach, with a dazzling white sandy beach and seawater as blue as the sky.
In contrast to the flat island Kei Kecil, Kei Besar is mountainous and heavily forested, and therefore more attractive for the active type of tourists. Northern Kei Besar has some of the finest and most accessible rainforest of southern Maluku, where birdwatchers can have rewarding forest walks. Altogether a good choice for the nature and adventure seeking tourists.
