Above Sea Level
Now you’re convinced that Raja Ampat has an unmatched underwater beauty. But don’t discount on the postcard-worthy charms above the surface. Like the sight from this viewing deck in Pianemo which offers a sweeping view of the archipelago’s karst constellations, scattered around the beaming turquoise waters.
In another part of the islands, the rock formations create a star-shaped lagoon filled with translucent shades of emeralds.
Sunsets are among the best sights in this archipelago in Papua, Indonesia. The pristine nature, tall rock formations, lush jungles, clear ocean, even the fresh breeze and seawater scent, all conspires to intensify this precious event of the day. No matter how long your stay in Raja Ampat is, trust us, you don’t want to miss a single sunset.
And yes, we know you’ve seen Pianemo a few pictures ago, but look at how much prettier it gets during the sunset. The few minutes of magic will last forever in your memory. Bursts of red and orange fall on the opulent sea and small islands, creating silhouettes and indescribable charming shades.
Don’t forget the magnificent sunrise too! You wouldn’t regret skipping the snooze button and rising up early for early hikes or island-hopping.
..because it only gets better. There are countless spots to explore, numerous islands to hop on.
