Between Sulawesi and Papua, Maluku is very, very away from the usual. They are also known as the spice islands, for obvious reasons. There is an airport on Ambon, a beautiful, untouched island. Most people visit Ambon on a dive-trip from nearby islands. These islands are home to beautiful, green dormant volcanoes and several amazing beaches. Accommodation can be quite sparse, especially outside Ambon.Other islands in Maluku: Halmahera, Ternate, Obi and Kei Islands.
