Warning there are some magnificent photos on display here, that will no doubt give cause to a case of the green eyed envy monster and have you booking tickets to Raja Ampat right away. Sorry, not sorry about that!
Raja Ampat has to be by far one of the (if not the One) most spectacular and wonderful regions in Indonesia. With plentiful fish, crystal clear water and sand so soft and delicate on the eyes it’s near impossible to not fall in love with this place. Add in a dash of friendly people, cheeky children and delicious food and its a match made in adventure heaven.
So what is there to do in Raja Ampat? Here’s a sneak peak in no particular order of the top ten things that you could be doing when you’re island hoping in Raja Ampat.
1- Go for a long walk along a pier
2- Par take in the massacre of coconuts
3- Enjoy the fruits of your labour on the picture perfect beach on Piaynemo Homestay
4-Swim with ALL the fishes. All the while practicing your best mermaid moves
5- Or if that’s not your thing take it up a notch and swim with manta ray or two.
(Video coming soon!)
6- Take a hike up the 340 wooden stairs to look over this majestic bay on Pianynemo Island
7- Snorkel some more. The fish are really friendly and they like cookies. No seriously they love to eat cookies.
8- Investigate the pros & cons of hammock life.
9- Get up close and personal with island locals.
10- Try not to fall in love with beaches like these;
This is just a sneaky little peak of what’s on offer for you at Raja Ampat. Other amazing activities include scuvba diving, kayaking, bird tours and potentially trekking in the jungle. With currently over 1500 photos to go through it might take me a few days when i get home to show off some more and show you the wonderful Indonesia of Raja Ampat.
