Iconic views out over the Raja Ampat
Also known as the ‘Pulau Wajag’, the 155 000 hectares that make up these small islets are replete with mysterious caves, channels and inlets, pristine beaches, and biodiverse lagoons. With so much to explore, make sure you choose a motor yacht with snorkeling and diving equipment to make the most of your time here.
Since Wayag Island is situated in the Coral Triangle, its waters have excellent marine biodiversity. We recommend visiting Eagle Rock in particular, which is the islands’ most popular dive site. Its considerable current has filled the clear blue waters with reef sharks, barracudas, and manta rays. Make sure you also keep an eye out for eagle rays, sweetlips, and wobbegong sharks as well as these have also been sighted here. Be aware, however, that the currents at Eagle Rock can be quite strong, so if you’re a less experienced diver then try out Wayag’s Gate: this is a less challenging dive site with little to no current where you can see breathtaking coral formations and the occasional manta ray.
For those in your luxury charter party who are feeling more adventurous, pull on your hiking shoes and venture up Pindito Peak. Taking roughly 30 minutes to reach the peak, this hike certainly isn’t easy, but those who feel up to it will be rewarded with unbeatable views out over the islets and the rest of the Raja Ampat. Given the steep, rocky climb there are ropes to help you along the way, but we still recommend that only the more experienced hikers among you attempt this one.
After a day of hiking and snorkeling, relax on one of the island’s white sandy beaches. Be sure to pack a beach picnic with your favourite food and drinks for you to enjoy under the warm, Indonesian sun. For a truly idyllic experience, why not stay on the beach until sunset so you can admire how the iconic limestone karsts dissolve into silhouettes in front of an orange and pink-streaked sky.
