Setting sail from Ambon
Ambon is one of the Maluku Islands, or the Spice Islands as they were known during colonial times, when nutmeg, cloves and mace grew nowhere else. Ambon was the seat of Dutch power in the islands, but little colonial architecture remains; visit one of the mountain villages instead, or snorkel amongst colourful reefs offshore.
Indonesia: Pulau Saparua
Indonesia: Banda Islands
The Banda Archipelago is a group of ten small volcanic islands, better known as the Spice Islands thanks to the nutmeg and mace produced here. The only significant settlement is on Banda Neira, with its hotchpotch of European colonial buildings, while off the coast you can enjoy some fantastic diving and snorkelling.
Indonesia: Banda Neira
Banda Neira is part of the Banda Archipelago, often known by the more evocative name of the Spice Islands thanks to the Myristica trees that produce nutmeg and mace. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to arrive here, later supplanted by the Dutch, and the streets are still home to an eclectic mix of colonial architecture.
Indonesia: Pulau Manuk, Run Island, Pulau Molana
