Where is Kei Kecil Island?
Beautiful Kei Kecil island lies in Kei Archipelago and is part of a group of islands in the southeastern part of Maluku Province. When I told my sister we should go to Kei Island for Eid Holiday, she had no idea where it was LOL. She thought it was an island not far from Java island and didn’t realize it was actually closer to Papua.
How to Get to Kei Island
- Fly Jakarta-Ambon with Garuda airlines and Ambon-(Langgur) Kei with Lion air/wings air
- Fly Jakarta- Ujung Pandang- (Langgur) Kei with Sriwijaya Air.
We like the second option if you just want to visit Kei because transit time in Ujung Pandang is only 2 hours.
