Our first week in the Maluku region, near the city of Ambon. We had time to kill for 6 days before the boat left to the Banda Islands. Not a bad place with swimming and coral right outside of our guesthouse room so we could easily go snorkelling in the waters.

Busy tourity area?
Yash, the place looks beautiful. Is it as peaceful as it looks? Are there many tourists in the area or do you pretty much have the beach to yourself?
