Misool Island: Charming Remote Resort







Misool Island is a remote tropical
retreat and is one of the four
largest islands in the Raja Ampat
islands, West Papua, a world-renowned
diving destination. The island is located
off the west coast of the island of Papua,
and is bordered directly by the Seram
Sea, a marine area that is a traffic lane
for a number of giant sea biotas, including
whales.

The clear blue turquoise sea allows
a spectacular view of Misool’s full colored
panorama even if from above. Raja
Ampat’s Marine Park holds 75% of all
known species of coral and ornamental
fish in the world, and is the site of the
highest marine biodiversity and is a pride
of planet earth.

On the mainland, the wild forest area
of Misool is part of the very attractive
lung region of the world that is captivating
in Raja Ampat. The island is full of very
dense forest, and when first looked at, the
island shows nothing but thick green forest
and mangrove swamps. To the east and
west of Misool Island, a limestone peak
labyrinth protrudes from the blue sea,
carved by the wave length erosion and
luxurious vegetation carpet.

A rare beach on the island of Misool is
in the form of pure white sand, surrounded
by coconut trees that lead to stunning
turquoise waters. Besides having a striking
natural scenery and abundant marine
life, Misool Island is also home to ancient
cultural sites.

A number of petroglyphs can be found
on the walls of caves across the
island, which is around 5,000 years old.
To get to Misool Island, we first have
to fly to Sorong Airport, the domestic
airport that serves the flight routes from
Jakarta, Makassar, Surabaya, Manado,
and Ambon. From Sorong, we can rent
a speedboat to bring us to the resort
on Misool Island. Speedboat and boat
departure schedules are determined by
the resort, usually on Sunday at 07.30 am
alternatively.

The journey to the resort takes
about 4-5 hours but it feels like there is no
time at all, as we pass some of the most
enchanting scenes we have ever seen.
