The Lease (pronounced Lee-AAH-say) Islands lay to the East end of Pulau Ambon in the Maluku region of Indonesia.

I spent a week there while waiting for a Pelni boat in Ambon. I took a look at spots in Saparua, Molana and Nusa Laut

It will be a while before I get to write this up.  The best spot I could find was on the East coast of Nusa Laut, at the North East corner (in the town of Ameth). Here is a snap of the big reef there.


The reef is 1km long and has lots of diverse, mostly healthy, corals.  You should see a turtle or two and some big  Napoleonfish.

There is one small, friendly, homestay in Ameth, Nusa Laut.

Boats go from Ambom to Saparua daily and then from Saparua to Nusa Laut two or three times a week.

Give it a try 🙂


More later…..
