Located in southeastern Indonesia and within the Coral Triangle, Alor has both well preserved marine and topside environments. The island’s volcanic history provides a beautiful and rich underwater base for marine life to thrive, stunning jungle covered mountains and smaller extinct volcano islands throughout the Pantar Strait.
While still new on the tourism radar, traveling to Alor is relatively simple and once here, it is a wonderful experience to dive on untouched sites and interact with local people who have still not had much opportunity to meet others from different parts of the world and are very excited to do so.
The Alor Archipelago lies in the southeastern section of Indonesia known as East Nusa Tenggara. Alor is approximately 1000km due east of the resort island of Bali and just north of Timor.
The Archipelago is made up of multiple islands, with Alor being the largest and containing the only town, Kalabahi. The other large island in the group is Pantar, with small islands Buaya, Ternate, Pura and Kepa located in the Alor/Pantar Strait.
Alami Alor Dive Resort is located just inside Alor’s Kalabahi Bay on the southern side and at the edge of Wolwal Village. This choice of location provides guests with quick access to both muck and coral reef dive sites while still keeping within close proximity to a small local village for those who like a bit of cultural interaction during their visit.
