The Dutch deported the first Vice President of Indonesia (Hatta) in 1627 and forced him to work in chain gangs in the teak forests of this island, as a lumberjack. You can visit Hatta House, where he spent most of his time in exile reading books and teaching locals. Today, Hatta Island is known for its crisp, white sands and crystalline waters brim-full of sea life – ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. Goa Hatta dive site in the north has a sink-hole at the reef entrance that forms a breathtaking archway to this aquatic paradise. Diving in clearest deep waters of the Banda Sea is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that no diver should ever miss.
