You’ve just discovered the floating island of Kri, Raja Ampat’s secret paradise
What you won’t find on the floating island of Kri
No children being forced out of school to sell you a bracelet. Not even a lady there to offer you eye brow threading.
There’s no people here, except the ones who joined you on the boat.
There’s no souvenir shop to purchase cheap crap.
As far as the eye can see is the shimmer of the sirens below the seas, tempting you to come play within the gradient blue, green water.
The Pasir Timbul Sandbar is the most beautiful and unforgettable spot to explore in Raja Ampat
It’s rather easy to get to the Pasir Timbul Sandbar.
What to do on the floating island of Kri?
Be a mermaid.
Take ridiculous photos.
Sit on the sand and reflect on all your life choices that brought you to this very sacred spot.
Looking beyond Bali and exploring Indonesia.
Hard, yet fun fact – Indonesia has a lot more to offer the traveller then just Bali. Don’t get me wrong, if you want to a digital nomad in Bali and base yourself in Canggu then go for it. Ain’t nothing wrong with that sweetheart. But as an unexplored destination Indonesia has oh so much more to offer. Raja Ampat is just one of these destinations. It is an area of the world that is going to be affected heavily by climate change and is probably one of the few areas that I’d really encourage you to go and visit sooner rather then later. It isn’t the cheap destination either. With there being very few budget options and most resorts are a little bit rough, but rather enjoyable. You’ll find the most places only offer full board services. As these islands are exactly that. Islands that don’t have amazing bars, cafes or restaurants.
Don’t let the remote nature and the solitude change your plans to visit Raja Ampat. Where else in the world can you sit on the beach for breakfast and watch dolphins swim by, see whales before lunch, swim with manta rays in the afternoon and not see any bogan travellers? There’s no place quite like Raja Amapt.
