Island hopping across Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat name (Four Kings) comes from local mythology and refers to four major islands of Waigeo, Salawati, Batanta, and Misool that is famous for ancient rock paintings. The largest national marine park of Indonesia, Raja Ampat archipelago lies at the point where the Pacific currents collide with the Indian ocean. These nutrient-rich waters have spawned (quite literally) a marine Eden. As if it couldn’t get any better, you don’t have to be a diver to have the best time in Raja Ampat. It’s not widely realized that Raja Ampat’s terrestrial biodiversity is every bit as rich as that of its more famous marine environment. Raja Ampat’s landscape is truly breathtaking. Untouched smaller isles with hills covered in orchids, rugged limestone cliffs rising from crystal waters, and hidden bays more magnificent than you could imagine.
