Banda Islands

The cluster of the ten Banda islands is only 44 km² in size and located 132 km south of Ambon. The marine environment around these islands is undoubtedly wonderful. The islands are surrounded by wonderful sea gardens, rich in decorative corals and fish, which make it one of the best diving sites in Asia. Facilities for sightseeing, snorkeling and skin diving are available, as well as clean and comfortable cottages.

The Banda group of islands is perched on the rim of Indonesia's deepest sea, the Banda Sea. Near Manuk Island, the waters reach a depth of more than 6,500 meters
