Raja Ampat literally means four kings, the name represents the four largest islands in the archipelago: Waigeo, Misol, Batanta, and Salawati.

Dubbed as a scuba diver’s paradise, the area is strategically located in the center of the coral triangles and is known to have the richest marine biodiversity on the planet. For that reason, most tourists come to Raja Ampat only to experience its underwater beauty. However, Raja Ampat has so much more to discover beyond underwater activities. With its endless natural beauty, remoteness, and the local community -tourism; Raja Ampat offers the kind of experience you won’t find in other destinations. And of course, island hopping is one of the best activities in Raja Ampat.

RAJA AMPAT TOUR

WAYAG ISLAND

Most people remember Raja Ampat from the photograph of the beautiful atoll of Wayag. Yes, Wayag is the icon of Raja Ampat. Being the icon of Raja Ampat, the stunning panorama of Wayag Island is featured on Raja Ampat’s tourism promotion. Wayag is an uninhabited island, situated northwest of Waigeo Island. Getting to this Raja Ampat icon is not easy but definitely well worth the effort. If you start from Waisai of Waigeo Island, it takes around a 3-4 hour journey by speedboat. Visiting Wayag is incomplete without climbing the steep and rocky hill to get to the viewpoint, which takes about 30 – 40 minutes (depends on fitness level), where you can enjoy the 360-degree view of the stunning panorama of unique karts formation beautifully scattered across the clear blue water.

PIAYNEMO

Piaynemo is one of the most famous spots in the Raja Ampat archipelago with its spectacular karts islets view scattered across the turquoise water. Piaynemo is often called mini Wayag, as the two atolls have a similar seascape. If you have limited time and budget, visiting Piaynemo is the best alternative as it’s easier and cheaper compared to Wayag. Piaynemo is located only a 1.30 – 2 hours speed boat ride from Waisai. Getting to the viewpoint takes only 10 to 15-minute walks and is fairly easy with well-maintained wooden steps.

KABUI BAY

Kabui Bay is located between Waigeo Island and Gam Island. The bay offers an amazing display of karts formation which is mostly covered with dense tropical vegetation. From Waisai it takes an hour speedboat ride through panoramic seascape. As the speedboat slowly cruises deep into the secret passage through the calm and clear water, you will be stunned by the pristine environment.
