How to reach Wayag Papua

The island of Wayag is in fact not the easiest destination to visit, but the infrastructure is getting better nowadays. To reach Marinda Airport in Waisai, you can fly via a flight from Manado or Sorong. Then you have to charter a boat from Waisai to Wayag Island. Boats shouldn’t be hard to find at Waisai, but the price can be quite overpriced for a solo traveler. So the best choice for Raja Ampat Trip is by group.

Get Around via liveaboard

How to get around in Wayag Papua actually depends on where you want to stay.  Make sure to plan your trip carefully. There are two options you can choose, stay at a resort or book a liveaboard. If you decide to stay at a resort, you need to rent a boat to visit Wayag. The other way to visit and enjoy the island by liveaboards. You just need to sit, relax and enjoy the breeze in your luxury cabin and let the boat crew pass the beautiful islands. Living on free seas while enjoying the nature of beauty will be an experience that lasts a lifetime.

Spending the day on the Wayag Island

Diving is the highlight activity in Wayag Island. There are many dive sites you can explore here. So, apart from enjoying the beauty of the island from above, you can also enjoy its underwater life. Once you get in the water, you can see beautiful stunning corals with different shapes and colors. You would never regret it, for sure.

The next thing to do is sightseeing. There are features of several small karst islands, on which travelers can witness.  You also have the chance to climb the karst’s hills. You only need 30 minutes to see the breathtaking view!One of my most favourite trips is a full day picnic on the tropical beach. Pick a perfect spot in the sand away from the rising tide. You need to get special food ready, and bring your thick beach blanket. Turn on your favorite playlist, and enjoy your day!
