Sharing In Selpele Raja Ampat – Travel to Raja Ampat, Don’t Forget to Share in Selpele Village – A Review from Our Visitors

One of our visitors wrote about Doberai Private Island and his experience in exploring the beauty of Raja Ampat

“Traveling around Indonesia is no less interesting than traveling abroad. In addition to increasing knowledge about the cultural diversity of the archipelago, this activity makes us love Indonesia more.

Sharing In Selpele Raja Ampat. For me personally, traveling is not only to please myself and to get tired from work routines. However, traveling is also a time for sharing. In November 2018, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to explore Raja Ampat, West Papua with colleagues.”

Raja Ampat is one of the ten best marine tourism destinations in the world (according to divein.com) with spectacular maritime views. So proud to be an Indonesian who has a beautiful tourist destination!

To reach the Raja Ampat area, I took a flight from Jakarta to Sorong, West Papua, about 6-7 hours with one transit in Makassar, South Sulawesi. Tip if you want to come here, take a night flight to land tomorrow morning in Sorong and can directly explore.

Arriving at Sorong, I continued to travel by sea, departing from the fishing port to the inn on Urai Island, about 2-3 hours by speed boat. Urai Island is strategically located between the Raja Ampat island destinations. I stayed at Doberai Private Island, a resort on a 70 hectare protected forest island.

A glimpse of where to stay, Doberai means peninsula according to the local language. Having a concept of full in privacy, the beauty of Raja Ampat is enjoyed in a quiet and friendly atmosphere with nature. There are two lodging choices, namely Eco Resort facing the beach without air conditioning and Deluxe Resort which is air-conditioned.

Scuba Diving In Raja Ampat

Scuba Diving In Raja Ampat – A travel blogger named Lina or familiarly called Alin wrote us on her blog, im-lynn.com. Here are just a few snippets from the blog he wrote and we have translated in English (original written in Indonesian)

“In general, you must have a certificate to dive. But there is a type of diving that does not require a certificate, namely Discovery Scuba Diving (DSD). DSD gives people the opportunity to try diving experience before deciding to take training or diving certificates In conducting DSD, you will be accompanied by a diving instructor.

Scuba Diving In Raja Ampat I feel lucky because Doberai Private Island has DSD facilities. The DSD fee here is IDR 750,000, including diving equipment, diving briefings, and assistance during diving. The diving site is around Urai Island, not far from the Canoe playground. “

Divers will be provided with an air cylinder containing 200 bar of oxygen and nitrogen. The duration of diving depends on the physical endurance of the diver and the availability of oxygen and nitrogen in the tube.

I decided not to miss the opportunity to dive in Raja Ampat. Before starting diving, of course my friends and I were given an explanation in advance about the code used when diving because in the water can not talk, the functions and ways of using diving equipment, and other things that must be considered when diving.

Thank you Alin for sharing your experiences with Doberai Private Island.

Visitor’s Review On Wayag Island

Beat Fear on Wayag Island - A Review from Our Visitors

Beat Fear on Wayag Island – A Review from Our Visitors

Visitor’s Review On Wayag Island – One of our visitors wrote about Doberai Private Island and his experience in Raja Ampat.

“Wayag Island is one of the tourism icons in Raja Ampat, West Papua, which is a coral hills area. This place is quite far from Urai Island, where I stay which also has a beautiful view. Approximately 3-4 hours of travel must be taken by speedboat to pass through the Halmahera Sea to the exotic region.

Other activities that can be done in Wayag besides climbing the coral hill, namely: snorkeling, playing and feeding sharks, and visiting the Selpele fishing village while sharing with local residents.”

In this article I will tell you the thrill of overcoming fear in Wayag. The adventure starts with the challenge of climbing a rocky hill then playing and feeding sharks.

Visitor’s Review On Wayag Island. There are two peaks of Wayag, which are 80 meters high and 100 meters high. When I visited, the 100 meter high hill was full of tourists. Finally, my colleagues and I decided to climb the 80 meter high hill.

Steep climbing area with a slope of almost 90 degrees. Had wondered whether I was able to reach its peak or not. However, I got rid of doubts and tried to conquer that fear. Testimonials of visitors who have reached the summit said the view was beautiful. You never know until you try. So, I try!

Amazed By The Beauty of Pyanemo Raja Ampat

Enchanted Piaynemo Enchantment and Raja Ampat Sea - A Review from Our Visitors

Amazed By The Beauty of Pyanemo Raja Ampat – Enchanted Piaynemo Enchantment and Raja Ampat Sea – A Review from Our Visitors

One of our visitors wrote about Doberai Private Island and his experience in Raja Ampat.

“Visiting the island of Piaynemo is a mandatory agenda when exploring Raja Ampat, West Papua. The island is located in Pam Village, West Waigeo District. From Doberai Private Island Urai Island where I stayed, Piaynemo was 2-3 hours by 2x200pk powered speedboat.

Amazed By The Beauty of Pyanemo Raja Ampat. One of the considerations I chose to stay on the island of Urai besides its beautiful beaches is its strategic location. The distance from here to various Raja Ampat island destinations is not too far when compared to staying in the city of Sorong.”

If you stay overnight in Sorong, it will take you 3-4 hours to sail to Piaynemo, depending on the power of the speedboat engine used. If you stay on the island of Urai then the sea journey is shorter and more destinations can be visited. Moreover, on Doberai Private Island there is an Raja Ampat Eco Resort which directly faces the sea so the experience of staying in Raja Ampat is more special.

The availability of electricity in the Raja Ampat islands is still limited. On Urai Island, the electricity goes off at 07.00 and will turn on again around 17.00. Therefore, don’t forget to charge electronic equipment, such as smartphones, cameras, power banks and drones at night. Flashlights can be taken in case an emergency occurs.

Continue to tell about Piaynemo, this island is a karst hill island full of green trees. Climbing the hill is easy because the stairs have been built up to the top. Around 300 wooden stairs are ready to be explored by visitors. Make sure your body is fit to climb!

Who doesn’t know Raja Ampat? This new belle of eastern Indonesia has begun to be known by many domestic and foreign tourists. But unfortunately, the cost to visit the place is still fairly expensive.

Just imagine, to enjoy the beauty that is in this place, at least tourists have to spend around Rp. 5 million for an estimated 5-6 days (excluding return airplane tickets).

Infrastructure development that has not been evenly distributed is indeed one of the main reasons, the high cost of living in the region.
