The archipelago is located in northwestern New Guinea bird's head, with about 1500 small islands and atoll and 4 of the main islands, namely Misol, Salawati, Bantata and Waigeo. The area is approximately 4 million square acres of land and sea - including the vast gulf of Paradise - making it the largest marine park in Indonesia.
Biodiversity and marine life of Raja Ampat is the most rich and diverse from all areas of marine parks in the region of the world's coral triangle, Filipinos - Indonesia - Papua Nuigini. Coral triangle is at the heart of wealth the world's reefs are protected and defined by International nature conservation protection.
“ Raja Ampat lies hidden in a remote corner of the sea, surrounded by the world’s most-complicated island geography. It’s a coral universe with enormous currents and tides bathing the reefs in an endless plankton stew. The combination of an infinite range of habitat and rich currents has produced an undersea wilderness dripping in biodiversity. A true Last Place on Earth “ – David Doubilet and Jen Hayes
