Driving around Kei Island

On our last day we asked Pak Sofian, Bu Lucy’s husband to take us around the island. It was raining on-off and cloudy the whole day. We were so lucky that we have gone to Bair and Ngurtafur when it was sunny the last two days.

Matwaer Beach

Driving to the south of the island take us to Matwaer beach, 1 hour drive from Ohoidertawun. 

Matwaer beach is the most beautiful white sandy beach in the whole island. The weather is not friendly today so the beach looks less stunning. But when the sun comes out and the sky is blue again this beach will stand out. The sand is so soft it felt like baby powder. Matwaer beach is located in the south, at the other end of the area where we stayed. There was no phone reception at the time of writing but I was sure this would change in the future. 

Yeer Teran at Leman

Back to the city we went to visit Yeer Teran at Leman. We took a boat to the small island where we could climb the tower to see Kei from above

Pasir Panjang Beach

Pasir Panjang Beach is the famous beach in Kei Island and there were many guesthouses around the area. As we came on weekend, the beach was crowded with locals and there was even a live karaoke on the beach lol. Pasir Panjang Beach reminds us of our Ancol Beach in Jakarta where local goes on weekend but Pasir Panjang white sand and crystal blue water would make Ancol super jealous.
