About Raja Ampat Islands.

Raja Ampat is word from Bahasa Indonesia, in english we call ‘King of Four’, is the name given to these islands and comes from a local myth. The four major islands found here are Waigeo, Misool (which is home to ancient rock paintings), Salawati, and Batanta, and hundreds small islands then we call Kepulauan Raja Ampat or Raja Ampat Islands.

Raja Ampat is one of the best for snorkeling and Diving and still very natural destination in west Papua, Underwater enthusiasts flock to this region because it offers the world’s best marine sights. Two days earlier, some of these travelers had been at a deafening corner of a tourist trap in Bali.

Once they took their flight to the bird head of the island of Papua everything changed as they embarked on a diving tour of a lifetime. In the Raja Ampat islands, divers can explore vertical underwater walls. The thrill of drift diving is another great challenge. These are the awesome experiences you will find in Raja Ampat.
