Raja Ampat

INTRODUCTION

Raja Ampat in West Papua is one of the most beautiful islands on the planet. There are spectacular snorkeling and diving spots and a place for the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Situated off the northwest tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula on Papua, the most eastern Island of the Indonesian Archipelago, Raja Ampat or meaning ‘The Four Kings’ is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati, and Misool.

Raja Ampat offers some of the world’s ultimate experiences for underwater enthusiasts. The territory within the islands of the Four Kings is enormous, covering 9.8 million acres of land and sea, home to 540 types of corals, more than 1,000 types of coral fish, and 700 types of mollusks. This makes it the most diverse living library for the world’s coral reef and underwater biota.

While its underwater splendors are beyond exceptional, the landscape above the surface is equally breathtaking. Piaynemo offers some of the most spectacular sceneries on the face of the earth. Further, at Wayag Island, the icon of Raja Ampat, you will also find an amazing rock islets formation on an even bigger scale. With all its spectacular wonders inland, on the shore, and beyond the waters, and its distinct serene ambience that you rarely find anywhere else on Earth,

Raja Ampat truly offers the ultimate experience one can only dream of. So, whether you are an avid diver, an occasional snorkeler, or someone who appreciates beauty in every sense, Raja Ampat welcomes you to Heaven on Earth.
