The Alor Archipelago is very difficult to reach. Therefore, tourism on this inhospitable piece of land is still pretty under developed. Diving occurs primarily from live aboards.
Maratua is an out of the way island off the coast of Borneo. You have to make a little effort to get here, but the moment you set foot on the island you feel as though you are in paradise.
