The Penyu (“Turtle”) Islands lie in the middle of the Banda Sea in Indonesia. They are part of the Molucca Islands, south of the larger islands of Buru and Maluku, and 180 km south of the smaller island Ambon. The Maluku province is mainly Christian. All these islands were at the centre of the spice trade dominated by the Dutch East India Company in the 17th C. There are 1027 islands in the province, comprising some of the most geologically complex and active regions in the world. Fifty kilometres to the west of Penyu are the Lucipara Islands, and 250 km to the east are the Banda Islands.

As with all these islands, corals are the star attraction. The surrounding corals drop off steeply making anchorage impossible. Penyu consists of three small coral islands – Mai, Kadola and Bingkudu. Pulau Mai is the largest at about 3km long. The islands are uninhabited , and turtle fishermen from Buru and Ambon fish there in the last quarter of the year. The islands are covered in beach forests, hence seen from afar. Today fishermen have cleared some beach forest and planted coconut trees; then burn off forest to provide ash fertiliser for the coconut trees, particularly on Bingkudu. So the ecology is changing.

Many countries have their ‘Turtle Islands’. These in the Banda Sea will be the least visited, as they will only be sought out by intrepid divers looking for magnificent coral forests.
