Transport in Kei
Round Kei Kecil.
Coaster – Calvaria - Debut - Goa Hawang – Evu – via East Coast Ohoidertutu or Matwaer - Coaster.
This is a full day trip requiring an early start. We suggest taking a picnic lunch as there are no rumah makan in the south of the island. The trip includes Kei Kecil’s main attractions. Ohoidertutu beach is particularly dazzling – no reef so when the wind is right it should be possible to surf: be the first on Kei.
Coaster – Dullah – Coaster. This is a three-four hour trip taking in the distinct muslim villages of Dullah, Kei’s new industrial park (more interesting than it sounds), beaches and inlets and the forest/bush of the east coast. Picnic lunch recommended.
Ojek (motor bike with driver)
These are very handy if you are on your own. Prices are negotiable and they are also the only way to see many places ‘off the beaten track’, not least the Wap peninsula - the long finger of land which is only just and so joined to the west coast of Kei Kecil, and still in pretty much pristine condition. The trip to Wap involves either a ferry from Debut or crossing a couple of rather dodgy bridges where locals exact Rp 5000 tolls.
if they can, you can.....
Kei’s roads/traffic are a challenge even for experienced riders - we are not responsible for accidents etc. Also note that bike hire in Kei operates on a ‘you bend it, you mend it’ principle and some quite extortionate claims have been made on guests who have had the misfortune to ding a bike. That being said, if you want to hire ask Johannes/Bob. Price typically Rp 100.000 /day.
Afraid we are down to one public bemo a day Ohoililir-Langgur-Ohoililir: around 7am from the village football pitch by the beach return from Langgur market terminus around 2.00 pm - R10,000 each way. There are local bemo connections to/from the Terminal to Tual.
