Fort Duurstede is a fortress Dutch heritage and built in 1676. From the top of this 20-feet-height fort, the tourist can see almost the entire Saparua and Nusa Laut island located on the East side. Most of foreign tourists who visit here come from the Netherland, especially those that still have relatives with Saparua residents. There are also tourists come from Britain, France, Switzerland and the United States. Because of the Netherland people often come to Saparua, Garuda Indonesian Airline opens direct flights from Amsterdam (Netherland) to Ambon. Since mid last year, the Indonesian government is actively promoting tourism in Saparua associated with the festival at the Fort Duurstede and Sail Banda in Maluku Province.
