The Banda Archipelago

The Mutiara Guest House, entrance
View from Gunung Api

The Banda Archipelago consists of about 12 islands ranging from Banda Besar - the largest - to tiny specks with only a few trees on them. 6 of the islands are inhabited. These islands are all that remains from what was once one of the world’s largest volcanoes. Each island has its own special ambiance and attractions. All provide magnificent snorkeling and diving from white sandy beaches fringed by swaying palms.
