Kapotar Island, a Paradise of Delicious Coconuts in Papua

goodmorningpapua.com – Coconuts are generally always fresh and so thirst quencher. However, this coconut from Kapotar Island in Papua is unique. Kapotar Island is also known as Panjang Island and is located in the Moora Islands, southern Cendrawasih Bay area or off the coast of Nabire, Papua.

However, tourists prefer to call it Mowirin Island. In fact, Mowirin is the name of one of the beaches on this island.

Almost the entire island of Kapotar is overgrown with coconut trees. This coconut tree grows naturally on the beach, some have been cultivated intensively by residents.

Kapotar Island itself is an uninhabited island. The resident’s village is on Mambor Island, which is located south of Kapotar Island.

The people of Mambor only occasionally come to Kapotar Island to pursue sea cucumbers at low tide, clean their gardens or harvest coconuts.

Coconut trees on Kapotar Island are generally tall. Uniquely, the tree trunk is not made of footrests for climbing.

Coconuts on Kapotar Island are only taken from old fruit. The way take it is very unique, no need to climb. The owner of the coconut garden only collects old fallen coconuts.

After peeling the bark of this coconut, it is then sold to Nabire City or by collectors it is sold to Moanemani which is located in the mountains of Papua.

Usually per coconut is priced at 3 thousand rupiah. Only when it reaches the mountains of Papua, the price can reach 10 thousand rupiah per grain because coconut trees cannot grow there.

Kapotar Island coconuts are known to have thick flesh, are harder and have less water content. The young coconut fruit also has a unique taste, perhaps because it grows on a small island in the middle of the sea and is supported by fertile soil so the taste is different.
