Climb the dramatic limestone peaks of Wayag, kayak through tropical mangroves, and relax on one of the many untouched white sand beaches.
Incredibly remote and almost completely undisturbed by humans, the islands and cays of Raja Ampat are considered by many as the most beautiful in the world. Renowned for its amazing diversity of marine life, the archipelago boasts some of the richest coral reef ecosystems on earth. The islands’ jungles are home to rare birds of paradise, with treks to watch their early morning dances a highlight of any trip to this tropical paradise.
Diving in Raja Ampat
At the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Ocean, Raja Ampat teems with life, fed by deep sea currents funnelling nutrients into the sea. Dives may take in coral reefs, blue-water drop-offs, mangrove flats or seagrass beds. Manta Ridge in central Raja Ampat is the best location to see mantas, where up to 30 rays gather at cleaning stations about 6m deep. With strong currents, you’ll need to hold on to something. Waigeo offers divers drift dives and sightings of green sea turtles, Indian lionfish, large wrasse, white and black tip sharks to name but a few. The coral reefs at Yangelo islands are amongst the most colourful in the area and are home to wobbegon sharks.
Indonesia’s shark fishery industry is the largest in the world. Since 2010, Raja Ampat has been part of the Shark and Ray Sanctuary, providing these animals a safe haven to reproduce.
