HomeBlogs Selaru: The Second Largest Island The southernmost island in the Tanimbar archipelago, Selaru is also the
second largest one after Yamdena. Just south of Saumlaki, it is also
relatively accessible, although it totally lacks visitor facilities of
any sort. It definitely does not lack attractions however. The native
Selarunese ethnic group are the most traditional in the Tanimbars, and
are known for their traditional ikat weavings, often still using
handspun cotton thread. There are also fine beaches and interesting
off-shore islands around here.
