Spice Islands

Up until the 18th century, the Maluka Islands (then known as the Moluccas) were the only place in the world where mace, nutmeg, and cloves grew. The valuable spices attracted Indian, Chinese, and Arab merchants, followed by European colonizers. Although the spice trade has long since been surpassed by fishing, logging, and other industries, centuries of colonial rule have left the islanders with a diverse mix of cultures and ancestries. The geography of the region holds as much variety as its people. The archipelago contains about 1,000 islands (many tiny), including several active volcanoes. Landscapes range from green-clad mountains to lowland swamps, with many idyllic white sand beaches and teeming coral reefs sprinkled liberally throughout. In a dozen trips to the Maluka Islands, you would still not run out of dramatic scenery, lush tropical vegetation, and rare wildlife to discover. When using our Indonesia vacation builder to make an itinerary online, Maluku Islands holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
