The Maluku Islands, also known as the Moluccas or theSpice Islands, are a region of Indonesia lying betweenSulawesi and Papua. This region is largely very off-the-beaten track for travelers. In the Dutch era, the Moluccas were known as the Spice Islands and were the only place on earth where nutmeg, mace, cloves and several other valuable spices were grown. The over 632 islands Maluku are sprawled across a vast expanse of ocean, sitting astride one of the world’s most volatile volcanic belts. Maluku is blessed with incredible sea gardens, idyllic, tropical beaches and rugged, forest-coated volcanic mountains.
