Details

Meot Trairam Homestay shares the same long stretch of white sand as Kordiris, Keruirim and Yendebabo Homestays, occupying a shady beachside setting at the eastern end of the bay near Yendebabo.

The two room bungalow has a double mattress with mattress covers, pillows and mosquito nets in each room. A shared verandah has a table and chairs for meals and a western style pedestal toilet and dip mandi bathroom are housed in a separate outbuilding.

There’s good phone reception at Meot Trairam and electricity is provided at night via generator.

Basic supplies are available in the villages of Friwen and Yenbeser, both of which are a 15 minute boat ride away.

Otto and his wife live on site, but don’t speak English, so bring a phrasebook if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia. Maria at Kordiris is available to assist if communication problems arise.

Transport / Getting there

Meot Trairam provides Waisai transfers via longboat capable of carrying up to 5 passengers with luggage. Waisai transfers cost IDR 500,000 each way and the cost can be shared among boat passengers.

Activities

Diving, snorkeling and jungle exploration

Diving trips are organised in conjunction with the nearby Kordiris Homestay.

Snorkelling at Meot Trairam (bring your own gear) is over seagrass and sand until you get a well away from the shore. Snorkelling trips to other great sites are available – see the table below.

The beach itself is sheltered from currents, great for children and provides the opportunity for long walks and visits to the homestays that share the stretch of sand with Meot Trairam. On nights with low tide, you can easily see the iconic Kalabia – Raja Ampat’s walking shark. Dugongs can also occasionally be seen grazing the seagrass beds, while the jungle behind the homestay is home to Red Birds of Paradise, giat kenari walnut tress, cuscus, squirrel-like tree rats, lizards, black king cockatoos and the huge nesting mounds of bush fowl.

At the rocky islet near Friwen from which Meot Trairam Homestay takes its name, Otto has tamed a school of large bumphead wrasse. On a sunset trip to the island you can feed the wrasse, see flocks of small birds gather in the trees to roost and wait for the island’s huge, night-foraging coconut crabs to emerge.

Meot Trairam snorkeling and tour prices
