Fak-Fak is a well-kept secret, located south-east of Raja Ampat in Irian Jaya (West Papua), Indonesia. It’s an area with many limestone hills, rivers and caves, creating streets which curiously twist and turn. It combines tremendous natural beauty with the most humble, tolerant, and honest people that ever existed. FakFak is a very secluded area renowned for its record-breaking marine bio-diversity; the water here is so nutrient rich, there are new species of fish and coral being constantly discovered. Swim under the impressive Kiti-Kiti Waterfall which cascades from the Kumawa Mountains into the sea, where you can kayak, snorkel and paddle-board. There’s also plenty to capture your attention onshore. FakFak is the only town in West Papua with a Muslim Indian and Arab Indonesian presence; descendants from 19th century traders. Head to the craft workshops of Papua, investigate the open-air markets, and let your imagination glide, touring historic sites and a traditional village in this wild and mysterious part of the world.
