Raja Ampat Island
Raja Ampat is located in the northwest tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula of West Papua. It is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small cays and shoals surrounding the four main islang of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigo, and the smallest islang of Kofiau.
Raja Ampat is the most bio-diverse location in the world. More than 3000 species of fish and over 300 species of corals have been identified here. In single one and half hours dive we can see more than 400 species of fish. Until today, the area is virtually unexplored and unknown due to its size. From mid-June to the end of August, Raja Ampat area has its roughest seas and lowest visibility. During the rest of the year, the sea is mostly very smooth with good visibility.
The marine natural resources in Raja Ampat make it significantly potential as a tourist destination. Many travel agents place Raja Ampat as one of their top ten diving destinations while it ranks number one in under water biodiversity. The International Marine Conservation surveys suggest that the marine life diversity in the Raja Ampat area be the highest recorded on Earth. It is greater than any other area sampled in the Coral Triangle composed of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Island, and Timor-Leste. The Coral Triangle is the heart of the world’s coral reef biodiversity, making Raja Ampat possibly the richest coral reef ecosystems in the world.
