Pulau Kelapa

kelapa.jpgLooking south-east from Longgar-Aparra, 2 long, narrow atoll islands can be seen. Named Jin and Jeud on the maps, they are aptly called Pulau kelapa (Coconut Island) by the locals. They are the closest islands of the SE Aru Marine Reserve to Workai and an easy day-trip. Don’t expect too much in the way of snorkelling possibilities though. Much of the coral in these parts has been damaged and the waters aaround here also tend to be somewhat murky.
