Located off the northwest tip of Papua’s Bird’s Head Peninsula in New Guinea, the beautiful Raja Ampat is made up of more than 1500 jungle-covered islands. This sparsely populated, year-round destination is a true hidden gem. Best known for its sublime scenery, spectacular white-sand beaches and pristine coral reefs full of rich marine life, Raja Ampat is one of the world’s most appealing yachting destinations. Described by scientists as a biological hot spot, it’s an internationally acclaimed diving location full of dazzling and colourful sea life and untouched coral. What’s more, its diverse range of species isn’t limited to the ocean. These lush islands are home to two bird-of-paradise species as well as lizards, snakes, tortoises, opossums and other birdlife. Seductively beautiful above and below the water, chartering a yacht in Raja Ampat delivers the ultimate island-hopping experience.
