The densely populated island Ambon lies southwest of the island. North of Seram is the Seram Sea and south of it the Banda Sea.
Nusa Ina was the name of the island as given by the original inhabitants of the island. 'Nusa' means 'island' and 'Ina' means 'mother'. This name refers to the tradition in Moluccan oral literature that all Moluccans originally descended from the island of Nusa Ina.
It’s one of the greenest islands. In its central part is the difficult to travel Manusela National Park, where we can organise trekkings for especially bird watchers. Here also live the traditional Alifuru tribes, which are still feared by many Indonesians because of their magic forces.
In the North lies the village of Sawai, which is mainly built above the water. From Sawai you can make beautiful trips on the Sawai rivier in a pirogue. Life is easy here and from the beach it is wonderful snorkelling.
