DESTINATION RAJA AMPAT

A little Geography

This archipelago of 1500 islands includes four main islands, Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Missol. The islands are often mountainous and the green tropical vegetation contrasts with the white sand beaches and the turquoise sea of ​​the coast. Raja Ampat is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean which gives rise to a strong continental current originating in the Sahul (Sahul is the name of the continental plateau with parts that have emerged, which are known today as Australia, Tasmania and the New Guinea). Raja Ampat covers an area of ​​approximately 46,000m2 and has around 50,000 inhabitants spread around the archipelago in villages that we visit during our cruises.
