Raja Ampat: an Overview

Idyllic beaches, secluded coves and stunning marine life - Raja Ampat is a naturalist's dream. With more species of fish and coral than anywhere else on our planet, the main attractions certainly lie beneath the waves, but there's plenty to explore on dry land too.

Raja Ampat consists of a cluster of islands located off of the North West coast of Papua, in far Eastern Indonesia. Home to some of the most pristine coral gardens in the whole of Indonesia, and indeed the world, this region is a snorkel and dive dream - like swimming in a life sized aquarium. An astonishing 75% of the world's coral species exist beneath the waves of Raja Ampat!

On dry land, relax on powdery sand beaches, explore hidden coves, kayak turquoise lagoons and go in search of the elusive Birds of Paradise through the steep, jungle-clad island peaks. The islands are also home to crested cockatoo, majestic hornbills and acres of virgin rainforest.

You can explore Raja Ampat aboard one of Indonesia's stunning Phinisi boats, some geared towards keen divers, others offering travellers the chance to keep their feet a little drier! Alternatively, base yourselves on an island resort and enjoy the sublime beaches, isolation and castaway feeling in complete luxury.
