The less well-known Banda Islands are attractive as an escape off the beaten path despite the fact that Bali and Lombok are tried and tested vacation destinations for a reason. At the edge of the Banda Sea, which has depths of more than 6,500 metres, is this group of ten tiny islets.
Due of their abundant nutmeg supply, the Bandas have long been a target for people in the spice trade. The Bandas, often referred to as "Eastern Indonesia's best kept secret," provide divers and sailors in particular endless thrills.
A possibility to see sharks, sea turtles, whales, the endemic Ambon scorpionfish, lobsters, and a variety of other animals can be found at pristine dive locations.
You can choose a live-aboard boat that makes stops at numerous excellent diving locations across the islands, or you can arrange your own lodging and excursions.
