Kofiau archipelago is one of the least frequented places in Raja Ampat – a spot to be alone with nature. It spans 43 islands of raised coral limestones and hills blanketed in orchids and tropical rainforest. There are also many volcanic hills covered in low forest. Kofiau is home to the local Kofiau monarch butterfly, rare kingfisher birds, and green tree pythons not found anywhere else on Earth. Due to its remote and strategic location in the Ceram Sea, Kofiau serves as a migratory highway to large ocean creatures, including killer and pilot whales.
In addition to animal life, prepare to be overwhelmed by the extensive coral diversity. Upon seeing the coral, those who visit cannot help but snorkel, dive, and photograph underwater. Other activities include an adventurous hike to an inland lake, seeking out the red bird-of-paradise, and diving by flat sandy islands to the southwest of Kofiau, including Boo islands. Very few liveaboards and yachts visit this most western remote part of Raja Ampat. You may be among the first to explore the faraway lands across Kofiau and Boo islands.
