Welcome to Kalabahi
Kalabahi is the chief town on Pulau Alor, located at the end of a spectacular 15km-long, palm-fringed bay on the south coast. Travellers come here to explore its coasts and nearby islands, using the town as a base that pales in comparison to the beaches and promise of diving. Other than some impressive banyan trees that make great points of reference, there's not much to see in the town’s dusty main drag, unless you happen to be passing by – expect locals to yell out and stop for a chat. Keep an eye out for school children and government officials wearing woven ikat vests over their uniforms on Thursdays to upkeep tradition.
