Travel to Wayag takes about 6 hours drive from Waisai. Up in Wayag, a traveler is obliged to stop by the post to report and show PIN that has been bought in Waisai or Sorong. If you are lucky .. the weather is friendly, and the sea breeze is not so great. The sea than will be so calm and clear like glass table. It is very nice to see the sky is mirrored to sea. Clusters and islands are so beautiful clouds reflected in the crystal clear sea. Since we left Waisai, the view of the sea is blue, skies and a tiny little island that arise from the surface of the water looks like emerald green, green tree growing island … .. really very spectacular view.
