Advice and Info
for your Holiday in Raja Ampat
To make planning your trip to Raja Ampat as simple as possible, we have put together a lot of useful information here. This should cover all questions that might come up while preparing for your tour.
Locally owned guest houses may lack western standards, but they make up for it with an authentic experience and unbeatable locations. We only choose homestays we personally know and can recommend.
If you value higher standard accommodation with westen amenities, one of the resorts is probably the best choice for you. Naturally, they come with a rather high pricetag.
Security In Raja Ampat
Raja Ampat is a generally safe place to travel — also for solo travellers. As everywhere, keep an eye on valuables and cash, reports of stolen goods are rare, though. Listen to advice from locals.
Off The Grid
Raja Ampat's islands are remote. Phone and data signal can be lost for days at a time or in some areas simply not be available at all. Power typically comes from generators and is only available at night.
Less Is More
Space is limited. Everything can — and probably will — get wet. Sensible electronics are best left at home, or stored with great care and in drybags: best practice on the boat as well as in homestays.
The Crown Jewel of
The Coral Triangle
The archipelago's fascinating nature and captivating culture are both very unique. Underwater, a world of vivid reefs awaits to be explored, while the islands' lush jungles echo the songs of birds of paradise.
