Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat
Raja Ampat (the four kings) archipelago encompasses more than 9.8 million acres of land and sea off the northwestern tip of Indonesia's West Papua Province. Located in the Coral Triangle, the heart of the world's coral reef biodiversity, the seas around Raja Ampat possibly hold the richest variety of species in the world.

A scientific survey of Raja Ampat islands conducted in 2002 by The Nature Conservancy showed that Raja Ampat houses 537 species of corals - an incredible 75% of all known coral species, 889 kinds of fish. This makes Raja Ampat the best diving site in Indonesia.

On land, the survey found lush forests, rare plants, limestone outcroppings, and nesting beaches for thousands of sea turtles.
