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.
