    Details

    Coco Huts Homestay is at Yef Kabu, a small sand cay in the heart of West Waigeo’s Meos Manggara islands.

    Coco Huts Homestay’s four private beach bungalows are located on Yef Kabu’s southern shore. The two smaller bungalows sleep a maximum of three guests on mattresses on the floor. The large private bungalows can accommodate four guests.

    The bungalow verandahs are over-water at high tide, and all have panoramic ocean views.

    Bedding in all bungalows includes sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. Bungalow verandahs have a table, chairs and ocean views.

    Meals are served in Coco Hut’s beachside dining shelter. In March 2024, Coco Huts was a new homestay with a temporary dining shelter: A trestle table and bench seating on the beach are covered by a stretched tarpaulin. Free drinking water, tea and coffee making supplies are provided there for guests. A more permanent structure will be built when resources permit.

    Guests share a 2 room bathroom building. A western style toilet occupies one room. Bucket bathing is provided in the other.

    Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset to about midnight. A variable 4G phone signal is received at Helda Homestay. Note that a data connection may not always be possible.

    Mutus village is about a ten minute boat ride away. Basic supplies are available from village kiosks there. (Any supplies you consider essential should be brought with you.)

    Only a little English is spoken at Coco Huts Homestay. Bringing an offline translation app or phrasebook will help with communication.

    To avoid contributing to the trashing of paradise, all homestays ask that you please take all your inorganic (especially plastic) waste away with you when you leave.

    Transport / Getting there

    A one way transfer between Coco Huts Homestay and Waisai costs IDR 2,000,000

    Transport is by longboat that can carry four passengers. Trip cost is shared by passengers.

    Reaching West Waigeo is not cheap, but the remote region’s unique attractions and wild nature justify the expense. You’ll also see a lot of Raja Ampat on the way, including Kabui Bay and the famed Kabui Passage.

    Activities

    Coco Huts Homestay can provide boat trips to any of the region’s attractions.

    Yef Kabu is a tiny, flat, sand cay in the middle of the West Waigeo’s Meos Manggara Islands.

    One long, white beach encloses two square kilometres of coconut palms, casuarina and ketapang trees that makes a perfect quiet hideaway and base for exploring some of the best reefs in Raja Ampat.

    The beach at Coco Huts provides easy access to the water, but it’s a bit of a swim over sand with coral outcrops before you reach the island’s fringing reef.

    Be sure to bring your own snorkelling equipment! Because of the region’s remoteness, West Waigeo’s reefs are pristine, rich and untrammelled by day tripping boats from Sorong and Waisai. Fabulous snorkelling is available in the area and it’s most likely that you will be the only people in the water. Mantas congregate at Pulau Yefnabi and several other  locations in the islands. They can even be found there between June and September, when they are usually absent from the better known Dampier Strait sites of Manta Point and Manta Sandy.

    Apart from the excellent snorkelling and mantas, the West Waigeo Islands offer sights like “Pasir Timbul” – a stretch of pristine white sand that emerges from the ocean with every low tide. A visit to Aljui Bay is highly recommended, and provides the opportunity to see ancient rock art galleries, a large commercial pearl farm, secret lagoons, cultural sites and spectacular scenery.
