As stepping on Kaledupa Island after a 2-hour journey from Wangi- Wangi you will directly recognize the difference between the two islands. Kaledupa Island got its name from “Kauhedupa” which means incense wood, has a more quiet and calm environment and the whole island is greener compared to the others, surrounded with mangrove forest and coconut trees along the coast. It is the most fertile island in Wakatobi.

Getting around the island, you will see beautiful wooden stilt houses dominating over modern houses in the villages and green hills with unexplored areas soothing the eyes on a sunny day.
