Alor Island is the largest island of the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia, between the Flores and Savu seas which is home to indigenous tribal groups renowned for their Moko drum culture. This is a stunningly beautiful island with its smouldering volcanoes reaching down into crystal clear waters fringed with pristine coral reefs, coconut palm beaches of pure white sand and traditional villages built half way up mountainsides.
It is 2,330 square km (900 square miles) in area and features two major mountains which are both old volcanoes and a platea broken up by steep ravines. Land at the capital, Kalabahi, set inside a peaceful bay embraced by white sandy beaches. Festive occasions on the islands involve the exchange of pigs, gongs, and mokos, cast-bronze kettle drums of unknown origin.
