The Raja Ampat islands in Indonesia are a truly natural phenomenon with enormous biological diversity. It is located off the northwest tip of Bird's Head Peninsula on the island of New Guinea, in Indonesia's West Papua province. Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo, and the smaller island of Kofiau.
The richest place for Marine life on Earth means that underwater photography should be on the top your list during your stay. The biodiversity is just amazing with weird and rare underwater creatures everywhere you look. Many new species have been discovered over the last few years in the archipelago.
It is like heaven for underwater photography with many magnificent hard and soft coral, a teeming reef life and clear water. These islands are very rich in macro life with just about all of the kind of critters you can dream of.
The Raja Ampats are also great for big fish action with pelagic fishes everywhere such as the Giant Trevally or the Dogtooth Tuna. And many Sharks, mainly Blacktip and Whitetip reef Sharks but also the strange and beautiful Wobbegong Shark.
