Forty-eight kilometers south of the equator, and almost directly in the center of Raja Ampat archipelago, Pef Island (Pulau Pef) is like a microcosm of Raja Ampat, with a variety of sights. The yachts crossing through Passage on Gam Island often pass Pulau Pef on the way towards the northern islands of Raja Ampat. It is a fascinating and multifaceted stopover, indeed.
Pef island promises verdant jungle with exotic birds, monitor lizards, and elusive cuscus. Its many delicate islets feature blue lagoons, smooth, pale beaches, hidden lakes, and astonishing bays with azure waters. With ‘mushroom’ outcrops and ancient artwork dug into karst cliffs, Pulau Pef is one of the most photographed sites in the region. No matter your adventurous taste, Pulau Pef offers something for everyone: enjoy diving, snorkeling, hiking, climbing, kayaking, swimming, sunbathing, photography, bird-watching, or just plain relaxing!
