Village of the Seafaring Bajo People
Mola is located in the western part of Wangi-Wangi, one of the largest islands in Wakatobi District. Kapota island, the village is located just 1,5 km from Wanci, the capital of Wakatobi District, and 28 km from Matahora Airport.
Mola is inhabited by the Bajo, a seafaring people, who have setled on Wangi-Wangi island since 1958. As descendants of sea nomads, Mola’s people have passed down their bajo culture from generation to generation, including knowledge and skills about living on and from the sea.
A visit to the largest and densest Bajo settlement in Wakatobi –perhaps in the world- offers a maritime experience to complete your trip to Wakatobi.
