Other destinations


Previously well and truly off-the-beaten-path, more and more adventurous travelers are discovering the delights of this remote island group.

The key attractions are water-based, with world-class diving and fishing leading the way.


The archipelago consists of the following main islands:

  • Alor - the largest island in the archipelago which is located at its eastern end. The vast majority of the infrastructure of the archipelago is either based here or run from here.
  • Pantar
  • Kepa
  • Buaya
  • Ternate (Alor) (not to be confused with Ternate in Maluku)
  • Pura
  • Tereweng


Get in

By plane

Kalabahi airport on Alor Island has daily flights to and from Kupang in West Timor on TransNusa Air Services [1]. A one way ticket costs about Rp 500,000 and the journey takes 45-50 minutes.

By boat

The Indonesian national ferry carrier Pelni [2] services Kalabahi from many points in eastern Indonesia. Two ferries have schedules stopping here: MV Awu [3] and KM Sirimau [4]. The distances involved are huge, so be prepared for long journeys and frequent delays.
