Bandanaira Overview

Bandanaira is a realy nice place (old dutch buildings and forts, diving, snorkeling and a great landscape). As a daytrip you can go to Banda Besar or climb the Gunung Api, or more interresting go for a few days to the nearby islands Banda Ai, Banda Hatta or Banda Run.
Getting to the Banda Islands is sometimes not easy. First to Ambon by plane from Jakarta, Surabaya, Makkasar, Kanada, Sorong and some smaller islands. Planes from there to Bandanaira fly so far only in nice weather 2 or 3 times per week and not in December and January, they are also not online bookable. There is a "speed" boat from Ambon, Tyler, 2 times per week, might also not run in bad weather or December, January..., and a boat from PELNI every second week coming from Surabaya. Makkasar going to Tual, Kaimana, Fak Fak and back (is sometimes late but running all year.
Internet so far only in Bandanaira.
