Welcome to Pasir Panjang
The Kei Islands’ most famous tourist draw is Pasir Panjang, 3km of highly photogenic white sand so powdery it feels like flour, fringed with swaying coconut palms. Despite its beauty, the beach is often quiet, except on local holidays and weekends when karaoke outfits crank up the volume near the beach’s access points: Ngur Bloat (south) and Ohoililir (north).
Like many beaches on Kei Kecil, Pasir Panjang is very shallow. At low tide, the water recedes a long way. Snorkellers will find more joy at the reefs of the nearby islands.
