Raja Ampat, literally “The Four Kings”, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool.
The name Raja Ampat itself is believed to derive from a legend according to which a woman found seven eggs, four of which hatched and became the kings of the four main islands. The remaining three became a woman, a ghost and a stone. With all its spectacular wonders, this is the place where words such as enchanting and magical carry real meaning. Discover and dive around Fam Islands, a well-known site for spotting the tasselled Wobbegong shark. This shark is rarely seen outside of Australia and New Guinea. Explore the beautiful island of Batanta, its countless bays lined with unspoilt mangrove forests.
