The icon of Raja Ampat

Wayag Raja Ampat
  • Regroups 50 karst islands

    Wayag Island is one of the many outstanding islands within the Raja Ampat district. It is located Northwest of Waigeo and with over 50 karst islands around Wayag, you could say this part of the archipelago epitomizes Raja Ampat, the reason why it is sometimes called the icon of Raja Ampat. In every tourism promotion about Raja Ampat, you will see a picture of the islands and their surroundings. The island is known for its beautiful atolls and amazing underwater life. Wayag’s nature also includes narrow channels and inlets, peculiar caves, sandy beaches, series of coves and lagoons, and jagged rocks capped by orchid-festooned jungle. It is another secluded island, with a peaceful environment.

    How to reach this remote paradise?

    Wayag islands are so remote, so no one lives on these islands. Liveaboards or chartering a private yacht are the most popular ways to visit this spectacular group of Raja Ampat islands. Liveaboard packages are a more comfortable alternative, with different ranges of prices. They may be the best alternative considering time and convenience. Liveaboards usually run 10 day cruises out of the port of Sorong, in West Papua. 

    You can also get to Wayag island from other islands in the archipelago, however Sorong is always the entry point and the nearest city to Raja Ampat.
