Welcome to Pulau Banda Besar

Most boats from Bandaneira arrive at Walang. A 25-minute walk west of Walang is Lonthoir, the largest village on the island. A long stairway from behind the Masjid Al Taqwa mosque in Lonthoir leads to the Kelly Plantation and Benteng Hollandia. In the northwest of Banda Besar, the secluded white-sand beach of Timbararu, a short walk from the village of Selamon, offers great snorkelling. There is also fine snorkelling off the east coast, although you'll need a boat to visit.
