SPICE ISLANDS

EXPEDITIONS

Sail to the wonders of the Spice Islands and the Banda Sea on an exclusive yacht with Flagship Luxury Expeditions

Four and a half degrees south of the equator, the beautiful Maluku Islands were once the world’s only source of nutmeg, mace and cloves, earning them the evocative nickname, the Spice Islands.

Sleepy, seldom-visited and seemingly lost in time, it is hard to imagine that this chain of idyllic islands in the Banda Sea between Celebes and New Guinea was once the centre for a highly lucrative spice trade. During the 16th and 17th century cloves, nutmeg and mace were worth their weight in gold and European traders battled fiercely to gain control of the aromatic spices that proliferated here. Remote, pristine and well and truly off-the-beaten path, these fascinating islands rife with scented nutmeg plantations, crumbling colonial mansions, historic forts and white sand beaches are best discovered by luxury yacht. Visit friendly villages and vibrant local markets, hike an active volcano, swim with manta rays and don a dive tank or mask and snorkel to discover stunning coral reefs teeming with marine life.
