Kei Dullah island sits next to Kei Kecil in the South Maluku Regency of Indonesia, complementing the main island of the pristine Kei archipelago. Kei Dullah hosts a city of Tual. Formerly known as the capital of Maluku, Tual’s territory includes Dullah, Tayando, and Ut Island. These excellent options allow vacationers to enjoy both the city and island area Tual has to offer. Promising enthralling beaches with powdered soft-sands that rivals the famous Bali and Raja Ampat of West Papua.
In the city of Tual lies a Rainbow Village called Wearhir. Its floating houses are covered with such a vibrant palette as a response to a neighboring village Kiom (or Kampung Merah Putih), brightly decorated with red and white buildings in the tone of the Indonesian flag. Different colors appeared a long time ago during the competition between the city council. It happened that it was split in two by the river marking the center point between the villages or Kiom of Wearhir. This creative arrangement by beautiful, patriotic, yet humble residents, is a truly unique sight of Kei Dullah. As you walk through both villages, you will see mind-blowing murals, colorful to the extreme, representing the spirit, unity, and national heroes of Indonesia.
Kei Dullah and Tual City is an astonishing destination that promises fun water activities, exotic marine life, and sites that are down to earth with the local people. One thing to put into mind is that Tual’s beaches are still considered hidden, peaceful, and perfect for those wanting to go off-the-beaten-path. You will hardly see any tourists there at all. The government of Tual also applies “Sasi Tradition,” which restricts the cultivation of natural resources like fishes and crops. Add Tual City to your travel itinerary and jump on a private boat with Islander to ensure you reach untouched nature, exclusively at Kei Dullah, Kei Kecil, and Kei Besar.
