Explore Papua, Raja Ampat and its beauty
Anyone who’s heard of Raja Ampat, has surely heard of its beauty. Let’s explore this area and understand what it has to offer.
Raja Ampat is a district in West Papua Province, located at the northwest tip of the Bird’s Head Peninsula. The area encompasses 4.5 million hectares, most of it water, with four main islands : Salawati, Batanta, Waigeo and Misool. The capitol city is Waisai. There are 610 islands, large and small, inhabited and uninhabited. The north area is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, while the west borders the Seram Sea.
Raja Ampat is not only for divers, the above-water views are equally stunning. In Pyainemo, sometimes spelled Penemu, you can see incredible bird’s eye views from the top of its four hills, each offering different views of the islands interposed againstthe clear turqoise water. Misool, located at the southern-most area of Raja Ampat, also offers bird’s eye views from Harfat Jaya Dapunlol Hill as well as Jellyfish lake, where you can swim surrounded by hundreds of harmless jellyfish. The Balbulol islands are equally beautiful. These locations are great alternative to Wayag Hill, Raja Ampat’s most famous icon. For sure your eyes will be amazed at all the natural beauty abounding from every angel.
Even in the water, it is not necessary to dive to experience Raja Ampat’s impressive underwater beauty, as snorkling or free diving will suffice. One example is Manta Point, where you can snorkel with dozens of manta rays. Truly amazing!
