KEI ISLANDS • INDONESIA
There are 3 main Kei Islands and Kecil contains the only airport. It is considered the most interesting of the three, with the best beach of the bunch – the astonishingly long and largely deserted Pasir Panjang. Connected to Kei Dullah by bridge and Kei Besar by a two hour boat trip, it jointly hosts the beautiful capital Tual-Langgur. Langgur (which contains the airport) is mostly Catholic and lies on Kei Kecil, while Tual (home to the seaport) is mostly Muslim – both are extremely friendly and welcoming of the few travellers who find their way to this exotic final frontier before West Papua. Kei Kecil (known to locals as Nuhu Roa) is the heart and soul of the Kei Islands and a must-stop for beach enthusiasts – prepare to be stunned!
