Raja Ampat

[:en]Raja Ampat is situated in the far east of Indonesia and can be accessed from Port Sorong in the north -west of Papua. The meaning of Raja Ampat is Four Kings as it is made up of four main islands but in its entirety is home to over 600.

Raja Ampat is a true paradise for divers. Simply stated, Raja Ampat has some of the very best diving in the world. Raja Ampat certainly represents the world’s richest marine diversity, with the highest number of known species of fish, corals, and mollusks. It counts more then 1500 species and 500 different types of coloured hard and soft corals.

The area is well conserved by the setup of many marine protection areas with aims of sustainable tourism to empower the local populous. Scientists have announced that this area of the coral triangle has the most diverse marine life on the planet due to adjoining currents from the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Home to many endemic fish the waters are also bursting with colour from truly breathtakingly healthy coral reefs that you can only witness here, not to mention manta ray congregations.

Birds of Paradise still live here in the wild and have been the topic of attraction for National Geographic for many years. Certain locations such as Wayag are famous for their panoramic views and bays filled with small mushroom islands. Local villages offer cultural tours and some of the friendliest hospitality you will ever come across.[:]
