Located on the islet of Kordiris, which is separated from the Gam Island mainland by the wildlife rich Dore Dor mangrove waterway, Kordiris Homestay lies in the shelter of the point at the western end of a perfect white sand bay. The winding mangrove filled waterways and dense jungles of Dore Dor are a birdwatchers paradise, alive with hornbills, sea eagles, eclectus parrots, kingfishers, herons… the list goes on.
The sandy beach at Kordiris offers great snorkelling over seagrass and reef. Dugongs can sometimes be seen in the bay at front of the homestay and walking sharks are regular visitors. Whales can be observed further offshore from the homestay as they move through the strait in April and May.
Kordiris Homestay has its own dive equipment and dives can be organised at any of the Raja Ampat dive sites.
The jungle behind Kordiris is home to Birds of Paradise, couscous, squirrel-like tree rats, black king cockatoos and bush fowl that build huge nest mounds in the forest.
Birds of Paradise also display near Kordiris and tours depart at 5.00am to view them. The cost is IDR 200,000 per person, paid to the owner of the land where the birds display.
