marine areas. Renowned for its biodiversity, Raja Ampat or ‘The Four Kings’ encompasses over 40,000 square

resulting currents stir up nutrient-rich water which, along with the tropical climate, nurtures magnificent coral
reefs and unparalleled marine life.

species of fish, 603 species of hard coral (including 75% of all known coral species in the world), 57 species of
mantis shrimp and 15 mammal species. As beautiful above water as it is below, the islands are cloaked in tropical
jungle and are home to unique flora and fauna. One can find karst forests of rare orchids, sea eagles, tree
kangaroos and the famed and incredibly beautiful birds of paradise.
